MURIEL ELIZABETH DODDS Muriel Elizabeth Dodds, born February 11, 1926 in Batavia, Ohio, went to heaven to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on June 1, 2021 with her two loving daughters by her side. Muriel moved to Las Vegas 50 years ago from Illinois, and enjoyed almost 20 years as a teacher at Western High School. After retiring, she maintained a vibrant life, even entering the Ms. Senior Nevada Pageant where she was 1st runner up and Miss Congeniality. Her talent as "Smiles" the Sign Language Clown, grew into a decade long ministry, visiting children in the hospitals and performing at senior centers and nursing homes. She lived a full life -- 95 years -- ministering to others, loving her family, and serving her Lord. She enjoyed painting, all kinds of crafts and needlework, gardening, and being a hostess to family, friends, and neighbors. She loved the outdoors and enjoyed walking in the park, biking and swimming. She is survived by her two daughters: Michelle Dodds and Margo Tims and son-in-law, Barry, two grandchildren: Dustin and Heidi and her husband Juan, and four great-grand-children: Johanan, Samuel, Timothy, and Elaina. She will be interred in Oklahoma. A Celebration of Life will be held in September at First Baptist Church in Las Vegas. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Gideons International or First Baptist Church, Las Vegas.

Mrs. Dodds was the best teacher for business and accounting ever!! She was the sweetest lady and my favorite teacher in Western. Her compassion had no limitations. She was the most caring person I have ever met. I am sorry for your loss. My condolences.

Mrs. Dodds was one of my favorite teachers at Western High School. We had fun in her class and she even let us do a potluck to celebrate the 1973 graduating seniors during our last day of class.
