Helen Dodd passed away, peacefully, on April 3, 2019. Her husband, Ken; daughter Susan and husband David; grandchildren, Katie, Scott, and Jenny; and six great-grandchildren were by her side during her journey, taking turns so that she always had a loved one by her side. Her other grandchildren, Jeff and wife Jodi and Ryan were geographically unable to be there, but were there in spirit. Her son, Bruce Dodd, had sadly passed away 1/09/11.
Helen was born, the last of seven children (and a twin), in Latimer, Iowa. Her family spoke only Danish. Helen’s Danish was still fluent. As a young woman, Helen attended business school and worked as a bookkeeper. She eventually co-owned a state-wide Veterinarian Drug Supply Co. in Wisconsin for 15 years. She then moved to Phoenix and worked for the state for 12 years. She was married to Floyd Dodd for 54 years, until his death. She is currently married to Ken Kochanski. She and Ken have enjoyed spending time with family, traveling and meeting new people. Helen was very kind and appreciative. Her loving spirit and beauty will be missed by all who knew her. Thank you to Season’s Hospice, especially, Rick, and the loving staff at Abrazzo SC.
