  • Notes 
    • Martha E. Dodson, 85, of Pleasant Hill, passed away March 28, 2013. Funeral services were held April 1 from the Pleasant Hill Community Church. Pastor Tom Warren officiated. Burial was in New Pleasant Hill Cemetery.

      She was born Jan. 11, 1928, in Tracy, TN, the daughter of Thomas L. and Phoebe B. Hennessee Cordell. She was a lifelong and devoted member of the Pleasant Hill community. After graduation from Pleasant Hill Academy, she continued there as an employee of the school.

      She was also a member for more than 60 years of the Pleasant Hill Community Church, serving as church secretary during several of those years, as well as helping in the church thrift shop.

      Volunteering at Wharton Nursing home was something she greatly enjoyed as she loved talking and visiting with people, never meeting a stranger.

      Her devotion to the farm and family never wavered as she took care of all the bookkeeping until she was 84 years old and her health declined.

      Family picnics at the farm lake were some her fondest memories. She loved cooking and taking care of her children and grandchildren and her famous banana pudding was certainly their favorite.

      She was a huge Lady Vols fan and loved watching them play.

      In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother-,John Cordell; and sisters, Pauline Standefer and Juanita Dykes.
