Angelamaria "Maria"
Wall


September 22, 1930 - June 22, 2020

 

Angelamaria “Maria” Wall, age 89, entered into her eternal reward on June 22, 2020. A Rosary will be prayed on June 26, 2020, at 9:00 a.m. at St. Joseph Catholic Church.   The family will receive friends from 9:30 – 10:00 a.m. at the church, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial, with Rev. Roy Runkle officiating. Burial will be in St. Michael’s Cemetery in St. Florian.

Maria was survived by her husband, William L. Wall; sons, William M. Wall, M.D. (Melanie) and Frank Wall, D.M.D. (Tricia); and granddaughter, Gianna Wall.

Maria was born in Sassinoro, Italy. She came to the United States in her twenties with her family, studied fashion design and worked as a dress designer for Geoffrey Beene. Starting a family, Maria left the fashion industry to be a full time wife and mother. After her children were grown, Maria became interested in gardening and spent countless hours creating a beautiful garden at her home, which she so generously shared with many gardeners in the Shoals area. Her garden was featured in several magazines, including Southern Living and Alabama Gardener. She was given an honorary Master Gardener designation by the Shoals Master Gardeners.

Maria was a devout member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church.

The family would like to express their appreciation to Mitchell Hollingsworth and Hospice of the Shoals for their loving care.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the St. Joseph School Building Fund, 115 Plum Street, Florence, AL 35630.

  1. Maria was such a sweet lady. She made the best cookies and was so sharing. She will be missed. Prayers for the family.

  2. I met Maria when her young sons worked on research projects. I had never before seen a mother more devoted to her children. She was so thankful and gracious to everyone who helped them. I encountered her over the years that followed through her work in her garden. She always said a thank you for the help her sons received. There was no one so gracious as she.

  3. I loved Maria better than myself. I can’t believe I will not be able to share our love of gardening again with the sweetest, most talented person I have ever known! You boys will never know how much our love of each other has been through the years! I thought she was going to be able to climb that hill forever! My heart is broken! I was not able to visit her this year as I was down with a shoulder replacement that went bad! And then the virus. Bill, I love you also and hope for the best of your health!
