Flags were lowered at Kelowna Courthouse today as family, friends and colleagues  of Judge Anne K. Wallace, gathered to pay their respects.

Wallace, 61, died earlier this week from a brain hemorrhage.

Wallace presided over many trials since coming to Kelowna in August 2005, at the turning point of an already lengthy career in law.

She was called to the bar in 1981 and before heading to Kelowna had considerable experience both in private practice and as a Crown prosecutor, in both provincial and federal settings in Vancouver, Nanaimo and Victoria.

She had been active with the Law Society of BC, the Canadian Bar Association and the Continuing Legal Education Society of BC.
