In early life she was united in marriage to Mr. Dodd who preceded her in death fourteen years ago. Mrs. Dodd was a life-long member of the Hope Methodist Church, and was an active worker in church circles for many years, and as long as her health permitted. She was a most highly esteemed woman, and greatly beloved by all who knew her.
