Biography: Dola was born on July 17, 1931 to James and Ann Maria Allingham. She had 6 brothers and 1 sister. She married Stephen Carnell Sr. They had 10 children and raised a grandson; Sibyl, Edna, Nancy, Gloria, Mary, Barbara, Carol, Stephen, Rona, Dawn and Gary (grandson). As a young woman she worked in the hospitals in St. Anthony and Flower's Cove. Later, for about 20 years she worked in the Fish Plant in Flower's Cove. She often recalled the many great years she worked there with the "women in the plant" and told fondly remembered stories. Dola was happiest when surrounded by her children and their families. Cooking meals and baking for her husband, children and grandchildren were things that she took great pride in and she was at her happiest times when doing things for her family. Berry picking, knitting, word searches, and weekly bingo were some of her favourite activities. Dola travelled to Alberta, North West Territories and Labrador to see where her children had settled down. In recent years she loved going home to her favourite place, Flower's Cove for summer and Christmas vacations. Her puppy, Brandi provided her with 13 years of companionship and joy. Dola passed peacefully away on January 11, 2016 surrounded by a large number of family and friends, of whose lives she touched dearly.
