Cuumba Creativity
To do always as much as we can in the way we can in order to leave our
community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.


Julia Anna Taylor was born July 3, 1917 in Chattanooga,
Tennessee. She was the oldest of five children born to Thomas
Erasmus Taylor and Julia Alice Alford. She received her elementary
-educationin the public schools of Chattanooga, Tenn. Further
education and -degrees were received at Hampton Institute and
STeachers' College, Columbia University.
Julia never grew tired of learning and attended continuous
educational programs at University of Pittsburgh, University of North
Carolina, Tulane University, John Hopkins, Center for Disease
Control in Atlanta. -
As a nutritionist with the New York City Department of Health,
she developed many close friendships which she nurtured and
cherished to the end. Loving adventure however, she moved to the
Virgin Islands in 1952 to work with the V.I. Department of Health as a
Public Health-Nutritionist. In 1955 she met Viggo Wallace, their union
in January 1956 resulted in two children: Anna Olivia and Julia
Florencia. She continued her work with the Health Department for a
period of 20 years and retired as the Director of Nutrition Services in
February, 1984.
Mrs. Wallace remained very active in many civic organizations
including the American Public Health Association, Lung and Health
Association, Charlotte Amalie Lions Club and the Women's League.
She was to represent the Lung Association at a meeting in San
Francisco, Calif. when she became fatally ill. She was also an active
member of the All Saints Cathedral Church until her death.
Julia's many service awards showed that she lived as she
believed: To give of yourself to family and community is the essence of
life. She was a quiet, caring lady and she will be missed by relatives,
co-workers and friends.

Tributes Insert A)
The beauty of marriage is a congenial understanding of each
other's love and desire to make things pleasant. The perfection of
our lives resulted in the raising of two beautiful young ladies who
brought love to us.

We shared all ups and downs together. She cared and worried
about my pain while not about her own.

My wife loved to serve and to help people. She has served me
faithfully. -May God bless her off-spring and may he keep her fire

S-.Viggo A. Wallace

Mother, Wife, Grandmother, Friend....many words describe her
"roll", but few words adequately describe her personality and
spirit. Julia Anna Taylor Wallace was a woman of faith, hope,
and love: love being thegreatest of the three.

Faith and hope were shown daily as she turned negative situations
into positives and never allowed the word 'impossible" to enter the
picture. Her loving spirit was demonstrated daily as she worked to
help "others in almost everything she did.

She touched each of us in different ways, and we will all have
unique memories of her. For me,-God blessed me with a mother
whose gentle, caring spirit continually displayed Christ's light. She
continually inspired me and I am eternally grateful.

I will miss you Mommy. You are one of my closest friends.Thank
you for your guidance through faith and encouragement through
hope. I will find comfort (asI hope others will) in the memories of
your ove. May God blessyoul -

--Julia Wallace-Hall

Aunt Julia was, is, and will always be a true inspiration to me.
Though our contact was not as often as we may have liked, I
always felt and still feel the strongest and deepest love for her.

In assessing the reasons why she left us the way she did (if they
can be assessed) I've come to the conclusion that she was ready to
move on to the next level; and she did it Her way, up to the end
with the style and grace she extended to all.

Aunt Julia, I can only aspire to obtain and demonstrate a glimmer
of your style, grace and warmth. I love you very much and I will
sorely miss you. In the times I falter and stumble I shall draw
strength and inspiration from your reverent example.

.--Love Always, Your Niece-Julia Ayana

Julia was a beautiful person and a devoted sister. She was always,
even during her childhood, trying tohelp someone. She was kind;
she was sweet; and we were always grateful for her words of
wisdom. Julia was great. Everyone who knew her well, I am sure
could feel this greatness!

Julia, our beloved sister, a wonderful human being, a person who
was always trying to make life better for someone. Julia, a
beautiful wife, a loving mother and grandmother; a darling sister
and aunt.
-From Her Sister and Brother,
Emma Taylor Quinones, San Franscisco, CA
George N. Taylor, M.D., Chattanooga, Tenn.

All of us who knew Julia very well appreciated her as a person of
great character and a Christain lady with ove for all. She did her
utmost to live a life devoted doing so much for others --and she

Mrs. Wallace you will be greatly missed by all who came to know
you. Working with you was a great pleasure. You were a great
teacher, a great leader and a friend. With your spirit of quietness,
you got the job done; no fuss, no quarrel. You have left a legacy
in the field of nutrition where you have contributed greatly -both
locally and abroad. This is witnessed by the numerous projects
you worked on, the organizations you have served in, and the
many conferences you attended and participated in. Two areas
that stand our foremost are: (1) the 1981 White House Conference
on Aging in which you were commended for your skill and
dedication, and for being instrumental in developing outstanding
recommendations towards Nutrition Education for Older
Americans. (2) The Supplemental Program for Women, Infants
and Children (WIC) was in place by February 1974. This
program, after almost 20 years is stronger than ever. All this
proves that your dedication and concern was for humanity as a
whole. Your untiring efforts and your labor of love will never be
forgotten. Rest in Peace.

--The Staff Bureau of Nutrition Services/WIC Program

Mrs. Wallace, you have been my supervisor, my friend and role
model (and a great one you were). You were someone I could
look up to, you have never let me down nor steered me wrong.
You knew the answers, and you were quite modest about it. I will
always remember you as I remember my own mother. And as
Gigi says "'you were my great friend". Rest in Peace until we meet
on that glorious day, for you are only sleeping until the trumpet

The St. Thomas Lions Club extends its deepest sympathy to Lion
Viggo Wallace and the family of the late Lion Julia. Her extended
family of Lions across the Virgin Islands and beyond commiserate
with you in your dark hour of bereavement. Lion Julia lived a life
of service, dedicated to the welfare of the community. Her watch
words have always been "We Serve." A Melvin Jones Fellow,
Lion Julia served her fellow man to the end, dying in the line of
duty, giving selfless service to her last breath. Now she is called
away to higher service. We have lost a great ambassador.
Requiascat in peace.

President, St. Thomas Lions Club

Mommy, If I could be half the mother you havebeen to me, I would be
doing great!
Love, Olivia

Aunt Julia, I will miss your bright smile, the joy you brought into my life,
you touched my life in more ways than one and I would like to thank youfor
your love, -encouragement and understanding.
Rest now from your earthly labors and let the loving arms of our Savior
surround you for ever more. Rest In Peace.
Love, Lorraine
Miss Wallace, I will miss your happy face passing my house going to
catch the bus or walking home from the store. Our little taks about Anna and
the kids and my kids and granddaughter. We -willall miss you very much.
Rest In Peace.

'Happy are those who die in the Lord! Happy indeed, the Spirit says;
now they can rest for ever after their work, since their good deeds go with
them." -Rev. 14:13.
The sudden passing of Julia Wallace has saddened the hearts of all the
members of the American Lung Association of the Virgin Islands and of her
many friends in the community.
Julia was involved in every phase of the program of the American Lung
Association of the Virgin Islands. As President, she was always available to
assist with -the activities of the various committees through which the
association functions. Through the weekly broadcasts over Radio WVWI -
Health and the Family she shared with the community a great deal more
than -the message of lung health.,:-
Julia has left a void in our lives that only time will heal. To her family we
ex press our deepest sympathy.
The:American Lung Association of the Virgin Islands

When there is love, any life is too short. Lion Julia was full of love for her
fellowmen. Her pleasant vitality was a continuous inspiration to her Lion
sisters -
She was one of our most hardworking and caring members as well as a
personal friend of so many of us who knew her. The many years she devoted
to community services will be long remembered by the people of St. Thomas.
We extend our deepest sympathy toLion Julia's family. Her leadership
:in our community will be sorely missed by all the lives she has touched and as
-well as her numerous friends.
Lion Julia, you taught us the true meaning of service to our fellowmen.
You helped us realize our real purpose here on earth. Although the time we
spent together was short, the memories and love will always remain in our
hearts. We love you and will meet you in the kingdom up above. May you rest
in sweet peace.
Your Sisters
The Charlotte Amalie Lions Club

Dear Lion Wallace
When there is love, any life is too short. Lion Julia had a way of making
the joys of life contagious. We the members of The Charlotte Amalie Lions
Club will remember especially Julia's contribution in helping the less
fortunate persons in our community.
We all appreciated the happiness she so willingly shared and inspired in
us, and we are fortunate to have been part of her family. No one who knew
Lion Julia could ever forget her charm arid warmth.
Our deepest sympathy goest -out to you and yur family. If there is
anything we can do to help please call us.
w Sincerely
