Obituary

Betty Joyce Farrell Pelt, 86, went on to Glory early in the morning on April 29th, 2022.

She was born to J.C. and Georgia Farrell on November 3rd, 1935. A daughter of Oak Cliff, she followed her handsome older brother, John Farrell, through Peabody, Greiner, and Sunset where she was a majorette known for her dancing skills. It was there that she met the love of her life, Eddie Pelt. They were married in 1956, and they still danced to “Blueberry Hill” in our living room when my sister and I were kids. They were married almost 60 years when he passed.
She was also a life-long member of Cliff Temple Baptist Church. A devout Christian, she followed the true teachings of Jesus. She always rooted for the underdog, she voted for Jesse Jackson when he ran for president, and she was touching AIDS victims long before Princess Diana. While going through her things, I found a plaque honoring her “service, loyalty, and dedication” to AIDS Services of Dallas. She also dedicated many years to Cliff Temple Baptist Church’s community Care Center.
She loved animals, gardening, reading, watching sports, chocolate, potatoes, Jesus, and her family. She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother and his wife, Elnora Farrell, her husband, and her daughter, Georgia Pelt Polk. She is survived by her son, David Pelt of Dallas, her granddaughter, Amanda Polk of Austin, her son-in-law, Rodgell Polk of Ft. Worth, her nephew, Curt Farrell, and his son, Justin Farrell, her niece, Tammy Farrell Alexander and her husband, Michael Alexander of Rociada, NM, and her children George Shannon, Kevin Shannon, Thomas McKean, and John McKean, her nephew, Rick Trevino, and Godson John Paul Gibson, and her beloved puppy, Bandita, all of whom will miss her terribly. She was an inspiration and example to us all.

    David, what a beautifully befitting tribute to your mother. I was always struck by her sophisticated style and grace. It was clear you got a lot of your talents from her. You have been an amazingly loyal and loving son, brother, uncle and I pray for comfort and peace for you and Amanda.

    David, what a beautifully befitting tribute to your mother. I loved her sophisticated style and grace; it was clear you got a lot of your talents from her. She was the perfect model of loving care and she taught you well, as you have done the same for her. May you and Amanda be comforted and be at peace.

    I met your Mother when we both were attending Park Cities Baptist Church. I sat next to her in a ladies class and asked her name and where she was from. I was astonishing when she said she was a long time Cliff Temple member. I am too! I said.
    We quickly became friends and soon found ourselves attending Cliff Temple again. I always felt that was a divine meeting. In the short time I knew her she blessed my life. Blessing to you and your family during these days.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
