NEWSPAPER UNKNOWN, 10 November 1941
Obituary of  ADELIA ALMEDIA DODD
Adelia Almedia STEELE, daughter of Oliver H. Perry and Caroline STEELE was born at Flag Station, Ogle Co, IL on July 4, 1864 and departed this life Nov 10, 1941 at her home in Strawberry township, aged 77 years, 4 months and 6 days.

In 1883 in company with her family, she came to
Washington Co, KS, where they settled and which locality has for nearly 60 years been her home.

Thus, Mother DODD has witnessed and been an
integral part in the growth of the locality since the late pioneer days.

On Oct 25, 1885, she was united in marriage to Thomas C. DODD. To this union 3 sons were born, Thomas C. and Alba C, both of Linn, KS and Perry A., who died in defense of his country in the World War at Chatereaux, France, on Mar 27, 1918.

Mr. DODD, Sr. died several years ago. Surviving besides the two sons and their wives are 12 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren, also 4 sisters, Mrs. Cora ANDERSON of Clifton, Mrs Ada MILLER of Jacksonville, TX; Mrs. Bertha
JOHNSON, Longmont, CO; Mrs. Vashti WAYMAN of Willow Springs, MO; one
sister-in-law, Mrs. Eliza STEELE of Manhattan, KS and a host of friends and neighbors.

The funeral services were held at the Throop church at
2 o'clock on Tuesday, Nov 11, with the Rev. F.E. WENDLAND in charge.

Six nephews were pallbearers, Perry N, and Fay E. CHUBBUCK, Munce N. JOHNSON, Oliver P. STEELE, Claude and Clarence ANDERSON. By Mrs. DODD's request the music was in charge of another nephew, Willis DARBY.

Also by her special request the hymn "Waiting and Watching for Me" was sung. It had been sung at her sisters funeral in 1893 and also at her father and mother's funerals.

In this day of defense activities it is singular that Mrs. DODD's birthday should be July 4, and her burial Nov
11 and buried as she was in Washington City Cemetery, she was placed in the family lot beside the two absent ones of her family, the husband Thomas C., a veteran and son, Perry A. a veteran of the World War.
