NOTE: Dodo was raised with her maternal half-siblings and step-father.

Dodo and Logan had four children; 15 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and 8 great-great-grandchildren (as of OCT 2008). Dodo was predeceased by a daughter, a son-in-law, a daughter-in-law, and a grandson.

Dodo had renewed her driver's license on her 96th birthday, a few months before she died.

I was truly blessed to have been close to both of my grandmothers. Dodo told wonderful stories of growing-up at the turn of the last century. I went on many road trips with her, that were filled with life lessons and family history stories. I house-sat for her and my step-granddads whenever they went on shuffleboard tournament tours. I spent many holidays with her at her homes surrounded with other maternal relatives.
