Dallas Christine Mendelkow

Father: Matthew Mendelkow

Mother: Jacoba Lynne Nutt (1958-)

Born June 14, 1999, in Logan, Cache County, Utah.

Died June 28, 2019, in Temecula, California.

At three months old, Dallas moved to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, CA, with her parents. It was there that Dallas met her earliest friends with whom she remained close all of her too-short life.

In 2002, Matt and Jaime married. Dallas loved summers with her daddy and Jaime and before long was sister to siblings Jaden (14) Peyton (12) and London (2) Mendelkow.

Always a team player and a hard worker, Dallas loved sports and served as cheer captain at Temecula Preparatory School (CA), where she attended middle and high school. She graduated from Fast Forward Charter High School (Logan UT) with her class in 2017. Most recently, Dallas was an assistant manager at Cafe Rio.

Dallas was fiercely independent and a spark who knew her own mind from the day she was born. She loved animals, helping others and cheeseburgers.

Dallas had an (extra) large family with whole lotta wholes, halves, and step- grandparents, aunts, uncles, sibs and cousins on all sides, plus a chosen family of friends and bonus parents whom Dallas loved “bigger than the mountains.”
