Karen L. Evans Dodge, 77, of Marysville, died Tuesday morning, April 9, 2019, at Brookdale Marysville surrounded by her family following a brief illness.
A very social person who enjoyed being with others, her employment included working for the Bill Hecker family, for many years, at the Hecker Shoe Store in Marysville and retiring from Bob Evans Restaurant in Dublin as a hostess.
She was accomplished in the kitchen, known for her cooking, baking and canning vegetables from the garden she loved to tend. Thanksgiving was a special time for her and her late husband, Joe, bringing the family together to celebrate their many blessings.
In her free time she was avid at crafting and making ceramics. She was also known by her family as a match maker, uniting many of the people she loved in matrimony.
She was born June 20, 1941, in Carbon Hill to the late David S. and Betty R. Briley Evans. She was also preceded in death by a baby son, Ronnie Bean II; two sisters, Kay Wyskiver and Krista Duncan; and her husband of 39 years, Joe B. Dodge, who died Nov. 26, 2013. They were married July 20, 1974 in Marysville.
She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law David and Carolyn Bean of Marysville; her step-sons Wayne (Margie) Dodge, Leland Dodge, both of Plain City, and Daniel (Valerie) Dodge of Milford Center; a granddaughter, Amanda Bean; several step-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
