Margaret Evelyn Dodson

March 17, 1923 - March 23, 2017

Margaret Evelyn Dodson, 94, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, March 23, 2017 in Virginia Beach, VA. Margaret joined her beloved husband Roy Raymond Dodson of 75 years who went to prepare a place for her just 10 days prior.
Margaret was born March 17, 1923 to Steve & Estelle Martin in Martinsville, VA. She was the oldest of seven and helped raise her three sisters and three brothers. Margaret was a member of Hyde Park Baptist Church and longtime resident of Norfolk, VA. She loved dogs and flowers; especially her rose bushes. She was an excellent seamstress and made most of her own clothes. Margaret enjoyed cooking in her pressure cooker and had a serious sweet tooth.
Left to cherish her memory are her son Leroy and wife Anita; grandchildren Cynthia, Saundra, Terri and Roy; great grandchildren Julie, Dustin, Aaron, Grace and Mila; great-great grandchildren Bayless, Bentley and Haley and her sisters Marie & Libby.
A memorial service will be held Sunday, March 26, 2017 at 3:00 pm at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5792 Greenwich Rd., Virginia Beach, VA.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
