Dorothy Hodges

Dorothy (known as Dotty) Lamb Hodges passed away peacefully in her sleep Feb. 19, 2013 at her home in California, Md. She was born Nov. 1, 1926 in Muskogee, Okla. She was the daughter of Wylie and Maude Lamb. Dotty married Jack Densford, a U.S. Navy JAG officer. They had three children together. As a Navy wife, she lived and traveled in the Far East. While the family was stationed in Japan, Dotty climbed Mount Fuji and took her young sons to visit small villages where the natives had never before seen blond, blue-eyed children. Dotty moved to Leonardtown, Md. in 1962 when she married R. Bascom Broun, III. Together they raised her three sons. Dotty was active in PTA. She volunteered with the Red Cross for 17 years, serving as chairman for two of those years. She also served as a board member on the Tri County Heart Association and the Patuxent River Naval Air Station Combined Federal Campaign. Dotty's third marriage was to New Mexico native, Joseph Hodges. They lived in Silver City where they were involved in many community activities. Dotty was an enthusiastic supporter of her husband's membership in the Kiwanis Club of Silver City. They lived here until Mr. Hodges' death in 2012 when she relocated back to Maryland to be close to two of her sons. Dotty is survived by her three sons: James W. Densford, III (Evie) of Penrose, Colo., Joseph R. Densford (Peggy) of St. Inigoes, Md. and David W. Densford (Terry), of California, Md. She was the proud grandmother of six grandchildren and the great-grandmother of three lively great-grandsons. She is also survived by her brother, Ed Lamb.
