Martha Sue Dodge

November 18, 1933 ~ April 25, 2022 (age 88)


Martha Sue Dodge, age 88, died of natural causes on April, 25, 2022, in Greenfield, Indiana.

She is survived by her daughter, Iris “Sissy” Lindsley of Greenfield, Indiana, her sister, Charlene Mays of California, her 7 grandchildren: Lynda, Mark, Chris, Misty, Kaitlyn, Noel, and Herman, and her 10 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, Jewell Dodge, daughter, Lynda Foxworth, father, “Bud” Fridy, mother, Hazel Fridy, and son, Ira Dodge.

Martha was born to Charles and Hazel Reese on November 18, 1933 in Hot Springs, Arkansas. In Arkansas she met and married her husband, Jewell, a soldier in the U.S. Army. They traveled the world, as he was stationed in several countries. They had three children and ultimately settled in Killeen, Texas. Martha was a homemaker and loyal military wife before her husband died in the Vietnam war. She moved in with her youngest daughter, Sissy, when she became married, living in Harker Heights, Texas between 1974-2016. Martha and Sissy then moved to the Indianapolis area to be near her grandson, Mark, where she lived until her passing.

Mrs. Dodge was a devout family woman and matriarch, dedicating her life as an unwavering wife, mother, and grandmother, caring for multiple generations. Martha was known to many, as “Gran” and the namesake was very fitting for who she was as a person. Gran not only raised her own children, but was essential and indispensable in the upbringing of her grandchildren. Her love, kindness, generosity, selflessness, and devotion knew no ends. Her smile and laughter were contagious. Martha Dodge, “Gran,” will be forever be loved and missed by all whose lives she touched.

A visitation is scheduled for 11:00 to 1:00 pm with the service starting at 1:00pm on May 7th at Crawford-Bowers in Killeen, Texas. Burial at Killeen Memorial Park Cemetery. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Martha’s life.
