An excellent cook, Dody enjoyed having her family over for Sunday dinners. As the family grew, those dinners often included 15 pounds of hamburger hand-rolled into meatballs to feed her hungry crew. She enjoyed traveling whether it was a full-fledged vacation or chauffeuring friends around town. But most of all, she cherished time spent with her family, especially her grandchildren. They kept her young at heart.
