Bertha Wallace rites Thursday

Services will be held at 1:30 p.m. Thursday in Dilday Family Chapel for Bertha L. Wallace, patron of the arts in Long Beach who died Sunday at the age of 72.
Mrs. Wallace was a director of the Long Beach Symphony Association, served on the committee which obtained the International Sculpture Symposium in 1965 at California State College at Long Beach, was a member of PEO and Long Beach Museum of Arts. She held leading posts in the Assistance League.
A ham radio buff, she was a licensed amateur under the call letters W6MA.

The family suggests memorial contributions to the Long Beach Museum of Art.

  Birth Notes:

Her birthplace was given as South Dakota on the marriage certificate of her son William. All other sources have North Dakota, and that is what family notes have as well.

Family notes state that she was born in Mud Lkae, North Dakota. However, Betty Jean's marriage certificate gives Bertha's birthplace as Fargo, North Dakota.

  Noted events in her life were:
