Dallas Diane Mitchell
Dec 23, 1944 - Feb 01, 2024
Dallas Diane Mitchell, 79, passed away February 1, 2024, at home with family by her side. She was born December 23, 1944, in Rupert, Idaho to William Haslett Overstreet and Thora Josephine Lund. She was a Christmas baby and always claimed Christmas as her favorite holiday (probably because her birthday was just two days before!). Being born in winter also caused it to be her favorite time of the year. She loved snow; the deeper the better. That being said, she never learned to ski. Dallas was the youngest child of six children. She had many adventures growing up in Rupert. She told us that she often ate in the diners located around the Rupert square because her mother was a cook in them. These meals often came late at night after the diner closed. Her family lived on the "wrong side of the tracks" where the poor families lived. Despite never having much money she said she had so much love that it didn’t bother her much. Her dad was a gambler, so her mom would send her into the local bars to get money. The bar staff allowed it because she was so cute! He always gave her some! She met many interesting characters during her days of running the streets of Rupert with her siblings. She spoke of a black man named Big Jim that was an employee and friend of her dad's. Her father didn’t approve of her friendship too much but didn’t intervene. They would walk and talk together for hours. I can’t image that was too fun for Big Jim. However, she treasured these memories. I find this interesting because her father was from Virigina and his ancestors fought with the confederacy! Dallas had a huge heart, especially for stray dogs, cats, and people. She’d take food down to the train tracks to feed the hobos who traveled the rail. Her mom scolded her for doing it because of the danger and because they didn’t have much food to give away. One time her dad brought home a bulldog that had been used in a fighting ring. It had lost a fight and was going to be put down. But her dad had a big heart too and being a gambler, bet the owner that he could make a gentle dog out of her. He brought the dog home and told Mom to stay away from it. The next day he got up and found her curled up around that dog by the wood-burning stove. (I think the dog was named Lady.) Dallas helped her dad train the dog and it became a pet. But to win the bet, her dad had to prove it was tamed. So, one day, he took Mom and the dog out to an old sheep herder. Lady didn’t attack the sheep or anything. They left the dog there to see if it would work as a sheep dog. Unfortunately, for Mom, a few weeks later they went to pick it up. The shepherd had showed how the dog had indeed became a top sheep dog. Grandpa had won his bet, but Mom had lost her pet. She could see though that the dog loved working with the sheep herder and sheep and left Lady there. Dallas had a hard time learning to read, and credited her 5th grade teacher, Mr. Nutting, for teaching her how. She said he was a strict teacher, but she loved him for taking the time to teach her to read. She attended school through the 8th grade, but she spent her whole life improving her learning. She told of reading the newspaper in her early twenties, writing down the words she didn’t know, and then her second husband, Bill Mitchell, would help her understand the words or look them up in a dictionary with her. She eventually earned her GED. She talked about taking all the GED tests in one day at CSI. But at the end of the day the test administrator forgot that she was there and went home and locked the door. When she finally finished the last test, she found she was locked in! Finally, the janitor came in about 10:00 and let her out, but she was afraid to leave her test in case taking it would ruin her score. The janitor helped her put it in an envelope and locked it up. She passed with flying colors. She was very proud of that. She spent her whole life reading and spelling words to make sure that she truly understood what she was reading. Even in the last few days of her life she spelled words out loud when she was resting under the influence of the pain medication. Learning was important to her.Mom became a beautician learning the trade at her sister Darla’s beauty school in Burley. She was very good at it, but she found she couldn't stand working that closely with people. They made her nervous and asked her too many questions about her life. She often ask them if they were writing a book! After graduating she cut a lot of hair and gave a lot of perms, but only to family and friends Mom had a lot of jobs! One that she did a great deal of in her early days was picking potatoes for her dad. She was very good at it. One day her dad came and stopped the line because somebody had complained that she was picking too many culls, so he put a big potato sack under where the shoot was and had everybody else get down and had her pick the culls. Not a wrong one in the bunch. No more complaining. Another time, probably on a bet, her dad had her fill a box of 100s, which I guess are smaller potatoes. Within just a few minutes, he stopped the belt again and went to check the box. The box had exactly the right amount of perfect sized potatoes. Not only was she a good sorter, but she and could pick up 100 LB bags of potatoes just like any of the guys. She and her brother, Buddy, would have a competition loading potato sacks into the train car or truck. Unfortunately, she paid for that ability with crushed vertebrae in her later years. The job she liked most was flagging when on jobs with her husband, Bill Mitchell, who she married in 1963. She had many interesting stories to tell about her experiences. She also enjoyed working at the INEL nuclear engineering site. Despite being exposed to radiation a couple of times, she worked hard cleaning radiated buildings. Also, while she worked at the INEL, she was cutting scrap metal on this huge machine. She described it kind of like a guillotine. Someone dropped something in the background making a loud bang, and she cut the end of her middle finger off! The doctor stitched her up and told her she would never grow a fingernail on it. But he was wrong. She did have a stunted nail grow back. There were two events that affected her entire life that influenced every decision and choice she made. The first one was losing her mother to heart failure when she was 17. She mourned the loss of her mother her whole life. I’m sure when she got to heaven that her mother was the first person to greet her. Followed closely by my sister Roxanne. The other was losing her kids after divorcing her first husband, Duane Dockstader. They had three children that she wanted to keep and raise, but she again she was only 17. The courts just couldn’t award the children to someone so young and uneducated. It broke her heart. She went to Jackson Hole with her brother Buddy and worked several jobs. She even met John F. Kennedy one day when he flew into the airport where she worked. It was an unforgettable experience for her. In fact, she said she also met Paul Harvey, Burl Ives, and Roy Rogers. She loved sharing those claims to fame! Dallas was a fun mother to have. As kids we would go stay with her in Rexburg for a few days in the summer and Christmas. She spoiled us so much! We would ride on a bus to get there. She fed us anything we wanted (much too much sugar), gave us whatever we wanted, loved us as much as we wanted. We would stay up all night to watch movies and eating popcorn, walked down to the little pioneer cemetery near her trailer park (of course, we were sure we saw ghosts), take us to eat pancakes and look at Mesa falls after staying up all night. These are fond memories we will never forget. She continued that tradition with her grandchildren who remember camping, Christmas breaks, and weekends at our home. Camping was one of most favorite pastimes. We spent many of them at Grayback and Grandjean with Grandma. We would stay up way past our bedtime to listen to spooky stories around the campfire, especially the one about the grave robbers that were raccoon-like monsters. I loved playing Rummy at all hours of the day. I feel like not only did she teach me how to play, but I admired how good she was at it.Her birthday and Christmas were always special times. When we were younger, I loved it when Aunt Jo and Grandma stayed at our home, and we would wake up on Christmas morning with them amid all our chaos. Christmas Eve always felt special; Grandma's colorful, gooey popcorn balls were always a fan favorite. I never realized how much effort went into the holidays until my mom passed, but there was so much love and hard work to make them magical for everyone. When we were younger, we would stay at Aunt Jo’s and Grandma’s. I’m not sure if our parents were just at the Tuma’s or in Jackpot but we would spend the weekend with her. I think I watched more rated R horror movies at that point in my life than at any point in my adulthood. After mom moved in with me in Jerome, we camped almost all summer long. At first in a little pup tent that we had to crawl into, then in a dome tent where we couldn’t quite standup, then a wall tent that we used happily for many years. We braved two bear encounters in that wall tent, which finally caused us to get a motor home. Unfortunately, the last few years she had been unable to climb into the motorhome, so we hadn’t gone camping, except when Wes and Becky would bring their giant motorhome and he would help her in! Mom loved being in the mountains with family and cooking over a fire. We even had snow a few times, which she loved. Dallas was met by most of her grandparents, parents, all her siblings, and her daughter Roxane when she got to heaven. She is survived by her daughter Jolene and son Wesley, eight grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and three great, great-grandchildren. She has many nieces and nephews whom she loved, and they loved her who also survive her. Her niece Trina, who she partly raised and took care of until Trina passed away in 2017, will be interred with her as well as 4 of the dogs we raised and loved! It was a glorious and happy reunion in heaven on February 1, 2024. A graveside service will be held at 2 pm, Tuesday, February 6, 2024 at Rupert Cemetry, Rupert, Idaho.

Karen Gay (Edwards) Woods
Mar 06, 1953 - Feb 25, 2024
Karen Gay (Edwards) Woods- beloved wife, mother,grandmother, sister, and friend- passed away in Dallas on February 25, 2024. She was born March 6, 1953 in Corpus Christi, Texas to Wilbur Arthur "W.A." Edwards, Jr. and Wilda "Evelyn" (Shipper) Edwards, the middle of their three children. Karen tragically lost her father in a roadside accident at the age of four. She was treasured by her paternal grandparents, Wilbur Arthur Edwards, Sr. and Chrystal Phelps Edwards as well as Karen’s maternal grandmother Nora Estelle (Milner) Shipper and her husband William "Daddy Bill" Thomas Scott.Karen’s mother Evelyn married a gentle giant, Frederick "Freddie" Philip Hahn in 1962, becoming a beloved daddy to Karen and her siblings. Freddie loved them as his own until his death at the hands of a drunk driver in 1971, an accident which Karen miraculously survived. Raised in the small town of Ingleside where her family had deep roots, she met a newcomer, Tyson Woods in 8th grade. He claims that it was love at first sight. The high school sweethearts graduated in the 1971 class of Ingleside High School. Karen attended Southwest Texas State University. Tyson and Karen married in 1978. Although they spent the entirety of their marriage in Dallas, Karen loved attending class reunions andmaintaining relationships with the people and places so significant to her childhood. Additionally, Karen was enfolded into the Woods family and enjoyed many holidays and trips spanning decades. Daughters, Brooke and Mallory were born in 1979 and 1981 respectively, and raised in a home where they always knew how treasured and loved they were. Karen had no greater joy than motherhood. She loved to read and sing nursery rhymes, sew homemade Halloween costumes, plan birthday parties, and shop for the perfect dress. She made everything special. God grew her family to include two treasured sons-in-law and blessed her with two loving grandsons and a beautiful granddaughter. Karen’s faith in Christ was secure and straightforward. It was formed in her baptism within the Church of Christ during her youth and lived out in her 40+ years of devoted membership atCentral Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Dallas. God’s hand on her life was evident through the personal losses she endured as a girl as well as the many health challenges she faced in adulthood, without bitterness or hopelessness. When diagnosed with a large meningioma in 2005, the treatment of which required two brain surgeries followed by radiation, she faced the challenge with courage, grace, and the assurance that God was the Author of her days. Karen believed that the Lord had gifted her talented medical team with the skills necessary to help her live the next eighteen "bonus" years. Those years included being a Mamu to her beloved grandchildren, traveling to Europe for the first and only time, deepening friendships, and enjoying the fruits of an enduring marriage. As the long-term effects of the brain surgeries weakened Karen’s physical health and made everyday life more and more challenging, her sharp mind and memory remained in tact and she never lost her ability to both give and receive love from others. Tyson was the devoted to loving and caring for Karen until she took her final breath. Her family and friends consider Karen’s life, and ultimately her passing, a testimony to the miraculous power of God to bring life from death. Karen was beautiful inside and out and created beauty wherever she went, but her life proved the adage that "pretty is as pretty does." She used her many talents and meticulous eye for detail to serve others. No task was beneath her and she was happiest out of the spotlight, content to let others shine. She delighted in shopping for just the right gift and considered the color coordinated gift wrap and elaborate bows an extension of the gift itself. Karen took her time because she cared about the details and she cared about people. She made everything special. Karen’s family considers her legacy to be one of small acts done with great love and intention. Karen is survived by her husband, William Tyson Woods, Jr. her daughters Brooke McCollum (Lee) and Mallory Jacob (Nick), her grandchildren Henry and Mills McCollum and Catherine Jacob, her brother Gary Edwards and sister Leah Lockhart(Delano), aunt, Jan (Edward’s) Murphy, nieces and nephews Winter Edwards, Cody Edwards (Lisha), Lindsey Anderson (Jason), Jensen Lockhart (Beth), Cameron Lockhart (Ashley), many great nieces, nephews,cousins, and her husband’s family. Karen’s family is especially grateful to Loice Ogola, who cared for her in the last six months of her life with the devotion of a loving daughter. A public visitation will take place at Charlie Marshall Funeral Home in Aransas Pass on February 28, 2024 from 11:00-12:00. Graveside funeral and burial will follow immediately in her family plot at Prairie View Cemetery.A Celebration of Life will take place at Central Commons at 4711 Westside Drive in Dallas on March 2, 2024 at 1:00 with reception to follow.

Frances Mae Helms Marr
Jan 20, 1929 - Feb 25, 2024
Frances Mae Helms Marr went to be with her Lord on February 25, 2024. She was born on January 20, 1929, in a country farmhouse near Pittsburg, Texas. She was the only child to Odis and Polly Helms and frequently lamented that she had no siblings.Some of her early memories include working in the cotton fields, Sunday morning church and playing with cousins. One memorable school bus ride was on her 13th birthday, when she met our dad, John Marr, which began a growing friendship including group dates to the local movie-house on the square. At Union Ridge High School she was captain of the volleyball team and in 1947 graduated as the Valedictorian of her class.After graduation, Mom worked at an insurance agency in downtown Dallas, which meant she had to ride the electric trolley car 20 minutes each way. Mom and Dad continued to date, and she worked to save up money for the future. Two years after graduation, Dad said "Let’s get married." A few weeks later, on May 28, 1949, they were married at the preacher’s house. They honeymooned in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Dad was drafted into the Army and they were stationed in Hawaii during the Korean conflict. Mom loved living in Hawaii and enjoyed days on the beach and making new friends. They returned to Dallas and purchased their first home in East Dallas. While living there, all 4 children, Rick, Judy, Ronnie, and Sherrie were born at Baylor Hospital. Later they settled into the "9511 house" in the Lake Highlands community for 53 years and most recently moved to Juliette Fowler Communities in the Lakewood area.Mom had a special love for each of her children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren. She was called on frequently for last-minute baby-sitting opportunities. Mom was Room Mother, Choir chaperon, 1970’s station-wagon carpool driver, Awana listener and genuine neighborhood friend. She loved going shopping for each of the grandchildren. She was the BEST COOK EVER. She was famous for her chicken-n-dumplings, peanut brittle, canned pickle relish and Mexican Casserole. She frequently would bake banana bread or coconut crisp cookies and give them to friends, family and shut-ins.In 1968, Mom began taking us to the weekly Children’s Bible Club taught by Mrs. Rankin. At that time, she fully embraced the true salvation story and Jesus’ death on the cross. She attended Women’s Bible Study faithfully for years and encouraged her children in BMA (Bible Memory Association). Both Mom and Dad would travel to baseball, football, basketball, and soccer games. Along with Dad, she traveled to see grandchildren in college and Sherrie’s family in KS, FL, and CO plus Judy’s family in Bolivia and Guatemala. Returning to Hawaii for a 2 week visit after 50 years was extra special. Mom will be greatly missed by those who survive her: Her husband of nearly 75 years, John; son, Rick & Beverly Marr of Dallas, TX, children Brian & Sarah Marr, Brenda & Drew Bird, Catherine & Clay Coleman; daughter, Judy & Glenn Stewart of Tyler, TX, children Ellen & Luke Rosenberger, Karen & Thomas Bartz, Gary & Madison Stewart; son Ronnie & Kelly Marr of Sherman, TX, children Meredith & Kyle Marr; Sherrie & Steve Marshall of Houston, TX, children Haley & Andrew Simons, Molly, Stephen and Michelle. Also, her 17 Great Grandchildren and countless extended family and friends whose lives she touched through many, many years.Until the end of her life, Mom always had a smile on her face. We as a family grieve because we miss her humor and sweet encouraging and loving presence with us; however, we rejoice with confidence that Mom is in the presence of our Lord and Savior forever. A memorial service, followed by a reception, will be 1:00pm on Saturday, March 2, 2024, at Northwest Bible Church 8505 Douglas Avenue, Dallas, TX 75225.
