She was born on Aug. 21, 1923,


the daughter of Leslie Gordon Glazier and Gertrude Louise Kenney. She grew up in Brookline, Massachusetts, later moving to Lincoln, Massachusetts. In 1933, Dorothy started what


would eventually become an 83-year figure skating career. As an amateur competitor, Dorothy [Glazier] com- peted in eight U.S. Championships and won two titles: the 1940 U.S. ju- nior pairs title with Stephen Tanner and the 1943 junior ice dance title with Lyman Wakefield. At the conclu- sion of her amateur career in 1944, Dorothy received an appointment as a judge. She became a national judge in 1971 and a national referee in 1979. At the conclusion of her judging ca- reer in 2016, she had judged 2,430 figure skating tests and judged or ref- ereed hundreds of competitions. Dorothy entered Radcliffe Col- lege in pursuit of a major in chem- istry. At the beginning of World War


II, she left Radcliffe and enrolled in the Boston Children’s Hospital Nurs- ing School. She told her family that she wanted to help the war effort and that there was a shortage of nurses. She became a surgical nurse and worked for the famous cardiac pioneer Dr. Michael Gross until she moved from the Boston area in 1950. In 1948, while working at Boston


Children’s Hospital, she met Dr. Wil- liam Percy Gillette Dodson, a native of Norfolk, Virginia, who was com- pleting his dental internship. They married on Dec. 17, 1949 in Boston. Throughout their marriage, Dorothy supported Bill’s 50-year successful or- thodontic practice as the bookkeeper and assistant with patients. She was also involved with the Northern Vir- ginia Dental Society’s Woman’s Auxil- iary, serving several positions, includ- ing president. Dorothy supported WETA, the


Mount Vernon Ladies Association and delivered meals for Meals on Wheels. She was a greeter at Christ Church Episcopal in Alexandria, Virginia, and is


remembered for her homemade


bread for the early service-goers. Having grown up with Newfound- land dogs and Maine coon cats, she took care of a variety of barnyard and four-legged animals that found their way to her home. She was also a sup- porter of the National Zoo. Dorothy


enjoyed traveling; she visited coun- tries all over the world. She regularly attended the opera, symphonies and theatre. Lastly, she enjoyed tailgating and attending many Redskins foot- ball games. Dorothy lived a long and fulfilling


life. She remained in excellent health until April 2016, when she was diag- nosed with myelodysplastic leukemia. She is survived by her three


children, Richard Glazier Dodson of Fredericksburg, Virginia (wife Virginia Thames Dodson); John Arthur Dod- son of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (wife Donna Fogle Dodson); and Ann Lou- ise Lindsay of Benicia, California (hus- band David Lawrence Lindsay); her sister, Leslie Glazier Holmes of Mount Airy, Maryland; four grandchildren, Michael Dodson, William Dodson, Alexander Dodson and Sarah Lindsay Gray; and her great-granddaughter, Elizabeth Ann Gray. Her husband of 55 years, William Dodson, died in September 2004. Rather than flowers, donations
