She was born in Corpus Christi, TX on December 12,1944 to James Ethmur Isbell and Dolce Lee Hornberger. She was known to family and friends by either name, Dallas or Ann.
At around age three Dolce left Dallas and James. Years later Dallas was able to find her mother had remarried and had a son and daughter, Ann’s half-siblings.
With her father, Dallas moved several times in her childhood where he managed motels in the states of Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, Arizona and Nevada where she graduated with the class of 1962 at Las Vegas High School.
While in Las Vegas, during high school, her father managed the Flamingo Hotel and Dallas was able to go to dinners with her father where she met many celebrities. A friend, Tina, said that during the hot summer months Dallas's father would sneak the girls into the pool at the Hotel.
She is survived by her husband, Michael Barnes; five children: David James Udall, Jeffery Scott Udall, Daniel Lynn Udall, Susan Dawn Udall, and Nancy Ann Udall; multiple grandchildren; and two half-siblings: Don Peterson and Suzi Peterson.
Ann graduated from Lamson Junior College with an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Business Administration July 31,1992. Being a single parent for approximately ten years, she provided for her family as a bookkeeper.
She married Michael Barnes on June 19, 1992 in Moreno Valley, CA.
Ann was heavily into her own family history over the years. She was a Member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and was tied into the von Rosenburg family of TX who came from Prussia (pre-Germany) to help settle Texas. Ann was so excited she got to go on a two-week trip with Art Green and several other cousins to tour Europe and visit the von Rosenberg estates and castles.
Dallas was a convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during high school. She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ever since.
She served two Church Service Missions as a Family Search Missionary.
Ann's favorite calling was with the Scouts helping numerous young men achieve their Eagle Rank. She took the time with each individual to make sure everything was completed before age 18. She was very fond of the young men and claimed they were her extended family of boys.
Funeral services will be held Friday, January 14, 2022 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints located at the McDowell Ward Building, 3344 E. McDowell Road, Mesa, AZ 85213.
