Mrs. Wallace was born May 17, 1945, in Owensboro, Ky., to the late Tony and Martha Jones.
Hellan was a receptionist for Century 21 Brooks Wells Enterprises for the past 23 years. She will be sadly missed by all of her extended family there and the many people she touched during that time.

A loving Mother, Grandmother, Aunt, Sister, and a friend to many, Hellan will be missed dearly but will remain in our hearts forever. Hellan's personality made an immediate and lasting impression upon everyone she met gaining her the nickname, Sunshine, as your day was instantly brightened when she answered your phone call or greeted you at the door of her office.
