    Dody was a treasured family friend. She went to nursing school with my sister-in-law and came to my parents’ home many times. I have great memories of giggles and story-telling as she shared some of their nursing experiences. I will remember Dody as a faithful servant to her church, a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She leaves sweet memories on the lives she touched.
