Obituary from the San Francisco Call, Volume 114, Number 37, 7 July 1913:

MRS. A.J. WALLACE. WIFE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR, DEAD

Paralysis Is Fatal to Ebell Club Leader and Los Angeles Church Worker

(Special Dispatch to The Call) LOS ANGELES. July \emdash A stroke of paralysis caused the death of Mrs. Alice Clark Wallace, wife of Lieutenant Governor Albert J. Wallace, this afternoon at 4 o'clock at the family home, El Nido, in the La Crescenta hills. All of the immediate members of the family were gathered at the bedside. For two years Mrs. Wallace's health had been poor. She suffered a first slight stroke in 1911. Last year the same affection returned in more positive form, and when her health began to fail rapidly several weeks ago her mother and sister in the east were notified and hurried here, arriving in time to pass the last few days in her company.

Mrs. Wallace was 48 years old. Her work for the Methodist Episcopal church and particularly for the parish to which she belonged, the West Adams street congregation, was always conspicuous. She was also a leader in the Ebell club, of which she was a charter member.

Her birthplace was Worcester, Mass., where her family was one of the oldest. Her father, Joseph Clark, was a typical New Englander, and reared his family on the home place that had been In the family for four generations.

As a girl Mrs. Wallace was given exceptional opportunities of education and she was of a literary turn of mind. For several years she taught in the schools of Worcester and on a vacation came to visit friends in Pasadena. It was here that she met Mr. Wallace and became his wife.

She is survived by her husband and four children, Kenneth Clark, 23 years old; Donald, 20; Helen Harriott, 17, and Catherine, 10. 5
