Adlea lived most of her almost 90 years of life in Alamogordo and was an active member of the community. She owned and operated the Yucca News Stand in downtown Alamogordo for several years. During that time many Alamogordo residents patronized the business and many of Adlea's family members enjoyed employment there. Her grandchildren gained their first job experience at the Yucca with a part time summer job or with helping with the annual inventory.
Adlea and her husband Billy were active bowlers and made many lifelong friendships through their bowling community. They shared love of this sport with their family which provided many fond memories of bowling trips and tournaments.
Planning is underway for a virtual memorial and celebration of Adlea's life.
The Wallace family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home.
