Dorothy was born Sept. 18, 1933, in Bloomington, Neb., to Ted Hill and Mary Anderson Hill. Dorothy was called Dot by her dad because she was no bigger than a dot when she was born. Dorothy attended schools in Bloomington and graduated in 1952.
Dorothy worked in Holdrege, Neb., at Brewster's Hospital as a nurse's aide and as a file clerk in San Francisco before her marriage.
On Aug. 25, 1957, she married Jack Dodson in Holdrege, Neb. They moved to Emmett in March 1959 where she became a wonderful mother and homemaker. Dorothy and Jack had six children. They divorced in 1987.
Dorothy worked in several of Emmett's packing sheds over the years and spent several years working for WICAP as a homemaker to the elderly. Dorothy always loved taking care of everyone no matter the need. She delivered the Statesman paper in the Emmett area from 1982 until 2006.
Dorothy's hobbies include doll collecting, which she shared with her mother and two daughters, collecting antique dishes and going to flea markets and antique stores. Dorothy also loved crocheting afghan blankets for her family and friends.
