In her earlier years, she worked for the former Conestoga National Bank, and enjoyed playing tennis and golf. Barbara had many friends. She kept in touch with many of her high school classmates and childhood playmates. If Barbara knew when you had a special occasion, you were sure to get a hand-written greeting from her. Barbara enjoyed traveling, both domestic and abroad. Her favorite vacation spot beginning in 1981 and extending for nearly 35 years, was with friends and family in Ocean Pines, MD. Barbara was an avid reader, family photographer, and enjoyed collecting antiques, and figurines of elephants and giraffes. She was a long time member of Leola Women's Club and a member of several Bridge Clubs, including one formed back when they were all newlyweds with New Year's Eve parties held every year from the mid 50s through this past NYE. She was famous for her red lipstick, and the Fruit Salad she brought to every family gathering and picnic. Always having a smile on her face, Barbara will be missed by many. She will be deeply missed by her husband, William W. Wallace; daughter, Margaret “Molly” Elizabeth Wallace of Lancaster, her brother, Robert A., husband of Evelyn Haig Shenk, and sister in law, Elizabeth Brungard Shenk.
