Kathy Lynn Dodson of Texarkana, Arkansas passed away on August 5, 2017. Kathy was born on April 28, 1952 in Amarillo, Texas. She graduated from Clarksville High School in Clarksville, Texas. She received a Bachelor of Science Degree and a Masters Degree in clinical psychology from East Texas State University in Commerce, Texas. She was a psychological examiner for Northeast Texas MHMR Center for many years until becoming a mother and raising her two sons.

Kathy was extremely intelligent and a whiz in Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus and tutored many students in these subjects. She could somehow make the most difficult math equations fun for her students to solve.

She loved her family and friends and especially her five grandchildren. She was also a tremendous animal lover. She gave time and money to the Humane Society and over the years rescued too many stray dogs to count.

Kathy is preceded in death by her parents, Delbert and Joy Dodson, of Holly Lake Ranch, Big Sandy, Texas. She is survived by her husband, Bob Dodson of Texarkana, Arkansas; her son Robert Dodson, Jr. and his wife Katie Sutton Dodson of Becker, Texas; her son David Dodson of Texarkana, Arkansas; her brother Steve Dodson and his wife Charlene Dodson of Waxahachie, Texas; her brother in law and his wife, Dick and Cheryl Dodson of Texarkana, Arkansas; her father in law, Dr. Ed Dodson of Texarkana, Arkansas and five grandchildren: McKenna, Becker, Banks, Brady and Bryce Dodson.
