Phyllis E. Dodrill Obituary
Phyllis E. (Troy) Dodrill, 88, a lifelong resident of Whitman, passed away at her family home on Tuesday, August 7, 2018. Mrs. Dodrill was raised by her parents, the late Florence Robichaud-Troy and Thomas E. Troy. Phyllis had 9 siblings, survived by brothers, Andrew Rossi of Akron, Ohio, and James Pancyck of Brockton; and many nieces and nephews. Married for nearly 60 years to the late William Nelson Dodrill, she was survived by their four children, Paula of Whitman, Steven William and his wife Terri of Hanson, Linda and her husband Cleve Bothwell of Largo, Fla., and William Nelson Dodrill Jr. and his wife Dianne of Whitman. Phyllis, also known as Nana, was survived by her grandchildren, Elizabeth, Nicoletta, Ashley, Steven, Courtney, Chandler and Samantha; and also great-grandchildren. Mrs. Dodrill, a graduate of Whitman High School Class of 1948, worked at a family owned business, Carol Annes Donut Shop in Whitman. She was also a longtime election worker for the town of Whitman. Phyllis would admit her most important job was being a Mom and Nana. Phyllis loved her trips to the Cape during the summer and condo in Florida during the winter.
