Wallace was sworn in as a judge in the Okanagan city in 2005.

Prior to that she served as a Crown prosecutor and a Queen’s counsel in Victoria.

She is remembered as a wife and mother, a champion of the community and an energetic volunteer.

“We’re just heartbroken,” continues Cartwright.  “We just need to somehow get through life without Anne Wallace.  I can’t imagine a world without her.  I really can’t.”

Flags at the Kelowna court house were lowered to half staff on Friday, followed by a minute of silence.
