Dodsons Celebrate 50th Anniversary

EDMOND —     Leo and Kathy Dodson of Edmond, Okla. celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on June 25, and were the guests of honor at a dinner hosted by their daughter Pam Usery, her husband David and their children Austin and Sydney at their home in Edmond.

    Their daughter Stella, her husband Dr. Mark McCollough of Salem, Oregon and their children Lindsey, Brad and grandchildren Irelynn and Tristain also attended the celebration.

    Leo and Kathy met near the Alamo in Texas, where Kathy served ice cream and Leo worked as the manager at the local Woolworth’s store. They were married in Houston, Texas on June 25, 1960.

    Leo worked in retail sales, managing Woolworth and TGY stores, and most recently Sam’s Club, from where he retired. He enjoys sports and attending his grandchildren’s ball games.

    Kathy is a retired teacher, but still serves as a substitute teacher in the local school system. She enjoys painting and sewing.

    The couple attribute the success of their marriage to working hard for everything they have and having learned how to compromise.
