Dallas Elaine Smith (nee Pummell) of Carievale, SK passed away peacefully in the early hours of Tuesday, October 25, 2022 at the age of 88. Dallas was born April 4, 1934 at Hornchurch, Essex, England to Robert and Eva (Fletcher) Pummell.  Before coming to Canada she married Peter Mahoney.

Dallas and Alex owned and operated a dairy farm for nearly 25 years, and then continued mixed beef and grain farming until their retirement.

Dallas was a great cook. She would bake her own bread, buns and decorate cakes for weddings as well as provide meals for all the farm workers, family members or neighbors who might stop by for a visit. She loved spending time with her grandchildren. In her spare time, she would knit, crochet, draw, paint, and make various craft items. 

Dallas was very involved in the community, belonging to the many organizations including the Carievale and District Board of Trade and the Newlyn Club.
