Virginia Ann Wallace Day was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She left this world on November 22, 2022 to be with the Lord in Heaven after a lengthy illness at Firelands Regional Medical Center in Sandusky, Ohio.

Virginia was born on December 1, 1939 to Oren and Tessie (Conley) Tackett in Salyersville, Kentucky. She graduated from Magoffin County High School in Salyersville, KY in 1958 and worked 39 years at Shelby Business Forms in Shelby, Ohio.

She married Glenn Wallace in February 1959. Together they raised three children: James (Gale) Wallace of Wilmington, NC; Joan (Anthony) Martire and Jan (Douglas) Miller, both of Sugarcreek, Ohio.

Virginia is survived by her loving husband of 35 years, Jan L. Day, of Plymouth, Ohio; her children, James, Joan and Jan; her step-children, Brenda Bullins of Wabash, Indiana; Susan Reynolds of Seymour, Indiana; Bryan (Michelle) Day of Ashland, Ohio and Denise Day of Wheatley, Kentucky; loving siblings, Janet Sue Ryman of Plymouth, Ohio; Johnny Tackett, of Willard, Ohio; Douglas Tackett of Shelby, Ohio; Jerry Tackett of Rock Hill, South Carolina; Barbra Porter of Shelby, Ohio and Sandra Kistemaker of Norwalk, Ohio; grandchildren, Jeremiah (Kayla) Miller, Sara (Edwin) Napol, Gregory (Katie) Miller, Thomas (Katie) Miller, Kyle (Rachel) Wallace, and Anthony Martire; step-grandchildren, Brandyn and Marilyn Day and Simon, Ariah, and Garrett Hankins; sweet, darling 11 great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews, family and friends.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her first husband, Glen; sisters, Earnestene Cunningham, Geraldeane Brooks, Eloise Landis, and Reta Hammond; and step-daughters, Betty Thomas, and Sandra Pierce.

The family would like to thank all doctors, nurses, and staff at Firelands Regional Medical Center in Sandusky, Ohio. Your gentleness and kindness to our wife, mom and granny was so appreciated during that difficult time.

Virginia’s visitation will be on Saturday, November 26, 2022 from 9:00 AM until the time of her service at 11:00 AM at the Taylortown Community Church in Shelby, Ohio with Pastor Doug Tackett officiating.

I can not bring myself to believe that this beautiful little lady is gone. I would try to go see her everyday while she was at the Willows. I loved her so much. I have never met 2 people as friendly and kind as she and her husband were. I will miss you so much and it was such an honor to have met you. 💔

Our condolences to the Wallace and Day families, especially to Jim, Joan, and Jan. Condolences to husband Jan. As teachers, we were fortunate to watch the three Wallace children grow up, encouraged always by their parents.
