Dallas passed away on Monday, July 1, 2024 at her home with her family by her side. Dallas has struggled with heart disease for several years, and the last three months were very difficult. Dallas is the daughter of James Edmond and Dessie Self Johnson.

Dallas was a wonderful mother, sister, aunt, and mamaw. She was a very hard worker. Dallas spent 27 years at Drexel Heritage and years at Burke Veneer. She went to cosmetology school in 1971. She enjoyed doing hair when she worked at Beauty Point, Smart Cut, and her beauty shop in her home. Dallas was well-known and loved by many.

Dallas loved listening to country music. She and her late husband, Paul Henry, would travel to Nashville, Tennessee to hear their favorites. Dallas always loved to go. She and Paul Henry would go to many places and make wonderful memories. After his passing, she continued to work and go on trips.

Dallas is survived by her sons - Harry (Diane) Brittain, Barry Brittain, and Mike Brittain. Her grandchildren - Paul (Brandy) Brittain, Billy Brittain, Hoyt Brittain, Brandon Brittain, Paula (Jeremy) Ellis, Amanda (Eli) Waters, Phillip (Panda) Brittain, Stevie Brittain, Kim Perkins, and Kevin Perkins. Dallas has 20 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

Surviving also are her brothers and sisters - James Johnson, Tommy (Trish) Johnson, Nancy (Daniel) McClellan, Ralph (Shelia) Johnson, Alma Davis, and Debbie Johnson. Dallas is also survived by many nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly. Dallas has a great church family as well whom she loves.

Those who went on before Dallas were her parents, the love of her life - husband, Paul Henry, daughters-in-law Ginger Brittain and Judy Brittain, sister-in-law Joie Johnson, brother-in-law Don Davis, and grandson Travis Brittain.

We would like to thank Dr. Keith Smith for caring for Dallas and to all the nurses from Amorem for all their support. Contributions can be made to St. Matthews United Methodist Church or Burke Hospice & Palliative Care.

The family will receive friends from 5pm until 7pm, Friday July 5, 2024 at Sossoman Funeral Home. A funeral will be held at 1pm, Saturday, July 6, 2024 at St. Matthew’s UMC with the Rev. Jacob Lancaster and Rev. Melanie Whaley officiating. Burial will follow at Forest Hill Cemetery.
