She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents – Horace and Kathleen Marlow and  paternal grandparents – Albert and Marial Wallace.

Courtney is survived by her parents – Michael Wallace of Lebanon, IL and Frances Wallace of Manassas, VA; Two brothers – Brockman (Hope) Wallace of Marshall, VA and Frank (Bonnie) Henry of Carbondale, IL; One sister – Megan (Kristopher) Mills of Lebanon, IL; nephews and nieces – Manzell (Briese) Henry, Hailey Merideth, Malcolm Henry, Alecys Wallace, Tenille Merideth, Brockman Wallace II and Alayna Wallace; loving aunts, uncles and cousins.
