Obituary for Marilyn Dolores Dodson

Marilyn “Dolores” Dodson, 87, entered into eternal peace on Sunday September 24, 2017, at the Saint Louis University Medical Center Hospital.

Dolores was born on May 28, 1930 in Halfway, Missouri, the daughter of the late Franklin and Letha Davison. She graduated high school in 1946, and by 1965 had obtained undergraduate and graduate degrees in Education, which prepared her for a 40-plus-year career educating and guiding children and young people in elementary and middle school settings concluding with 10 years in the Missouri Division of Family Services working to protect children and unite families. She married James Dodson in December 1951. They embarked on a long and happy journey together enjoying over 65 years of marriage, companionship, family life, faith journey, and professional life. To all who knew them, they were the inseparable “Jim and Dolores.”

She leaves her memory to be cherished by her faithful and loving husband, Jim Dodson; her daughter, Jama Dodson; her son, David Dodson; her grandson, Joel Dodson and his wife Kristi; her great-grandson, James Anthony Dodson—all from St. Louis, Missouri; and her sister, Jeanne Osborne, of Raytown, Missouri.

A celebration of Dolores’ life will be held at the Emmanuel Baptist Church on Saturday September 30th, 2017. Visitation will be held at the church from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 PM, and the Celebration of Life service will begin at 2:00 PM. Interment will be at the cemetery of the Eudora Baptist Church in Eudora Missouri.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Emmanuel Baptist Church, 624 Russell, Greenfield, Missouri 65661.

Online condolences may be shared at www.greenfieldfuneralchapel.com. Services are under the care of Greenfield Funeral Chapel.
