Kathleen was born on November 15, 1926 in Bay City, MI to Caroline and Andrew Nickel. She is the youngest of seven children. She graduated from Handy High School and went to work for and eventually retired from Chevrolet. In 1953, she married the late John “Jack” Dodge in a small garden in Angola, Indiana.
They often traveled to Mio and other places up north to go fishing. Kathleen was very creative and took up wood crafting in her spare time.

On behalf of The Carriage House, we would like to congratulate Kathleen on being November 2017 Resident of the Month and we wish her a very Happy Birthday.
