Obituary for Josephine Nancy Dallas

Of Clifton, beloved wife and mother, died peacefully while sleeping on October 23, 2018. She was 89 years old.

Josephine Tarone was born into an extended Irish-Italian family on March 25, 1929, in Jeddo, Pennsylvania. She grew up before World War II in nearby Hazelton with her two sisters and one brother. After the war, she met and married Frank Dallas and supported him throughout a successful career in the Army, settling in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Jo was a wonderful mother and grandmother, and a spiritual guidepost for her family and friends. Always active and energetic, she enjoyed being with her family, volunteering many years for the Cumberland County Board of Elections at the Fayetteville Courthouse, bowling, square dancing, playing bridge, and spending time with the Bunko Babes. She had too many devoted friends to count and will be greatly missed by all.

Jo was predeceased by her loving husband of almost 70 years, Frank, in January 2017. She is survived by her three children: daughter Nancy Boatner and her husband Jim and daughter Patty Horoho and her husband Ray, of Clifton, Virginia, as well as son Ed Dallas and his wife Mary Jo of San Antonio, Texas. She is also survived by her sister Jean Pecora and her husband Mike of Hazelton, Pennsylvania, and seven grandchildren who thought of their Nana as an angel on Earth. A mass of Christian burial will be celebrated for Jo at the Saint Andrew the Apostle Catholic Church on 6720 Union Mill Road in Clifton at 11 a.m. on Saturday, November 3, 2018, followed by burial at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please share a kindness with others to honor Jo’s memory and her kind nature. If you would like to make a donation in Jo’s name, please donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
