Elizabeth M. “Liz” Dodson, 79, of Cabot, Arkansas, died peacefully in her sleep on September 1, 2020. She was a beloved mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, friend, and mentor. Liz was preceded in death by her parents, Edgar and Viola Markley, and her brother, John Perry “JP” Markley.
Survivors include her husband James, their children Jeffry McMillan (Leora), James Dodson, Jr. (Regina), Marvin “Sonny” Dodson, David Dodson (Judy Mae), Jaime Thrasher (Joseph) and their families, sister Mollie McAllister, brother James (Glynna), and sister-in-law Lurlene Markley.
Liz’s wishes were for her friends and family to gather and laugh, cry, hug, and share memories and stories of their time with her. Rather than dilute her vision by holding virtual services, or reducing the number of attendees, she wanted us to wait until social distancing restrictions are lifted. In death, as in life, she would expect her wishes to be honored so we will plan to gather in-person to celebrate her life once it is safe to do so.
