Montrel “MD” Davis Shrader Wallace, 77, went home to be with the Lord on December 21, 2021 at St. David’s Medical Center in Austin, TX. Visitation will be on Thursday, December 23d, from 12 pm till 1 pm at Patton Baptist Church. Services will follow immediately after with Brother Pat Cummings officiating.
MD was born on September 20, 1944 to Montrel Davis and Mary May (Franklin) Shrader in Clifton, TX. She attended Moshiem School until its closing and transferred over to Valley Mills High School. She went on to beauty school in Waco and absolutely loved it.
Her career as a beautician was short-lived when she met the love of her life, Robert “Maxie” Wallace, on a blind date during the summer of 1963. They married on May 2, 1964 at Searsville Baptist Church in Valley Mills, TX. The two of them then began traveling the world, as Maxie started his military career. She held the higher rank maintaining the household and raising their three children. She treasured her family and would do anything for them. After decades of “their” military career, they settled in their home in Clifton TX, near family and friends.
She worked for the Clifton Lutheran Sunset Home for many, many years. She never met a stranger, and made friends wherever she went. Among many things she loved shopping, traveling, meeting people, and being with her family. Her family was her most prized possession.
Preceding MD in death are her parents and siblings. She is survived by her husband, Robert Maxie Wallace, and children; Doyle Wallace (Lesley) of South Boston, VA, Dean Wallace of Clifton, TX, Wanda Johnson (Kelly) of Waco, TX. She has 6 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, and many other dear family members.
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to St. David's Medical Center, for their care of Mother and her family.
In lieu of flowers, remembrances can be made to Patton Baptist Church, 6677 Chisholm Trail, Valley Mills, TX 76689.
