Mary Margaret was born on April 12, 1932, in Pineville, Missouri, to Carroll Verne Faust and Mary Augusta Morris Faust. The family moved to Washington in the 1940s, where Mary Margaret attended the University of Washington before marrying Earl Leon Wallace. Mary Margaret and Earl raised their family on Whidbey Island, and Mary Margaret later moved to Enumclaw, where she lived for her last 25 years. Mary Margaret was an avid reader, a gardener, and a good friend to many. She also tutored numerous children throughout the years in a variety of subjects. She will be sorely missed in her community.

Mary Margaret is survived by her children, Howard Wallace and Eleanor Wallace, her grandchildren Gerard Wallace, Brita Wallace and Daniel Schuler, and her great-grandchildren Beatrix Wallace, Charlotte Wallace and Clementine Wallace.
