1938 - 2018 Obituary Condolences
MARGOT WALLACE Margot Wallace, 79, of Las Vegas, passed away July 29, 2018. Margot was born September 11, 1938, in Leipzig, Germany. In her youth, Margot performed artistic cycling, gymnastics and acrobatics throughout East Germany. While on tour with a gymnastics team in West Germany, Margot bravely decided to seek freedom, escaping Communist East Germany, leaving her family and everything she had known. She met and married Matthew Wallace in Trier, together raising three children. They lived in Trier Germany, Williams AFB Arizona, Naples, Italy, Homestead AFB Florida, Ramstein AFB Germany, finally settling in Las Vegas in 1978. Throughout all of the moves, she prided herself in being an exceptional homemaker and loving mother. Later in life, Margot met her companion, James B. May. Together, they enjoyed dancing, going to shows and were active in the Las Vegas Valley Model A Club. She was known to be very lucky and won an unusual number of Royal Flushes on the quarter machines. Margot kept very active riding bicycles, swimming, doing yoga, until just a few years ago. She was preceded in death by her siblings, Ruth Wernecke, Horst Wernecke and Gunter Wernecke; and companion, James B. May. Margot is survived by her children, Lanora Wallace of Oklahoma, Michael (Deidre) Wallace of Maryland, and Angela (Fabrice) Suplisson of California; grandchildren, Morgan and Madison Wallace, Joseph and Mark Suplisson, and Angela Cox; great-grandchildren, Austin Cox, Dayton Marley and Jaycee Marley; siblings, Elvira Kaurisch and Dieter (Barbel) Wernecke; and former husband, Matthew (Fran) Wallace. Visitation will be 4-7 p.m. Friday, August 3, at Kraft-Sussman Funeral Services, 3975 S. Durango Drive, Suite 104, Las Vegas. Mass will be at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, August 4, at the Lakes Lutheran Church, 8200 W. Sahara Ave., Las Vegas. Contributions in Margot's memory may be directed to your favorite veteran's organization.
