Emily J. Dodge

1927-2012 Emily J. Dodge, a former resident of Sheffield, passed away November 4, 2012 in Medway, Mass., following a brave battle with breast cancer.

Emily was a miracle child born in Melrose, Mass., March 24, 1927 to John Butler and Catherine Scanell Butler after doctors told them having children was not possible. Her parents adopted a child before Emily was born and she was the first of three children her parents would have, all of whom predeceased her.

Emily was raised in Everett, Mass., and educated in the parochial schools there before graduating from Everett High School in 1945.

She married William E. Dodge Sr., also of Everett, in 1948 and they raised three children in Sheffield who survive her; William E. Dodge Jr. of Shrewsbury, N.J., Catherine Helen Miglas of Bakersfield, Calif., and Nancy Butler Dodge of Holliston, Mass. In addition she is survived by 6 grandchildren; Kristie Hales, Bethany Brenneman, Aaron Brenneman, Joseph Winiker, Sarah Winiker, and William E. Dodge, III - and five great grandchildren.

Emily was fun, instructive and a nurturing mother. She was a kind and caring friend to all that knew her and she opened her heart and her ears to all who had something to say. She made many laugh, she leaves much and took so little during her lifetime. She was grateful for the blessing of life and steadfast in her belief that everything happens for a reason, and prepared to deal with whatever came her way. It is with God's blessing that she passed in relative comfort and peace, with her daughter Nancy at her side.

Services will be private and the family requests that those interested make contributions in Emily's name to the " " - Email: donorinquiry@komen.org or PO Box 650309, Dallas, Texas, 75265.
