Beverly Blanchard Wallace was born and raised in Houston, Texas, despite most of her extended family living in Gatesville. In hopes of finding employment Post-World War II, Beverly’s parents had moved away from their very large families in Gatesville, and longed to return. Beverly attended Broadway Baptist School in Houston from the age of 2 to graduating 12th grade as Salutatorian. She married her high school sweetheart, Frank Wallace, shortly after high school graduation. Two years later they welcomed their first child, Beau, and two years after that came their son, Miles.
Wanting to raise their sons in a smaller town and be near to family, when Beverly’s parents retired and returned to Gatesville, Beverly and Frank seized the opportunity, and the Wallace Party of 4 moved to Gatesville as well. After a few years, they came upon Salado, where they implanted themselves in a wonderful church home, built a deeply loved circle of friends, and found great schools for their boys. Beau and Miles are now adults with successful careers.
