Helen Louise Wallace, 83, of Urania, passed from this life on Tuesday, November 12, 2013, at the LaSalle Nursing Home of Jena following an extended illness. She was born July 5, 1930 in Texas to the union of her parents, Marvin Hitt and Jessie Byrd Hitt. Helen was best known by so many people for her work with Dr. Brant Thompson, DDS, in Olla for so many years until Dr. Thompson retired. She loved music and singing, needlepoint, and she was known for her wonderful cooking. She was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother; and all who knew her will sorely miss her. Services were held at 3 p.m., Friday, Nov. 15, from the Sanctuary of First Baptist Church in Tullos with the Rev. Scott Smith officiating. Interment followed in the Urania Cemetery under direction of Riser Funeral Home of Columbia and Olla. She was preceded in death by her parents and by a daughter, Sharon Louise Wallace.
