Leota Eloise Pennington Dodson

 

Leota Eloise Pennington born 10-24-1927 married Robert (Bob) Dodson.  Leota was born to Leota Mae Moore and Walter Green Pennington.  Bob is the son of Lillian Wilson and Lester Dodson from McComb O.

The Penningtons moved to Flat Rock, Ala. and Eloise attended school there. After the death of her parents in 1937, she and her two younger sisters Faye Imogene and Sylvia Deloris came to live with their grandparents Minnie Lou Cox and Clarence Lewis Moore at New Salem.

Eloise graduated from Dade County High School and was employed by Interstate Life & Accident Insurance Company in Chattanooga, Tn. She was a cashier in the district office. Later in her employment she was a traveling cashier working in Atlanta, Ga., Tampa and Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., Union City, Tn. and Savannah, Ga. Bob and Eloise met on a flight to Savannah, Ga. Both were in route to their jobs. Eloise told her family that she met a nice man on her flight. Two weeks later she informed them that she was going to marry this nice man.

Bob is a self employed builder. Prior to coming to Dade County where he worked at the Mountain Top Shopping Center, he was Vice President of Convenience Stores in Ohio.

Bob and Eloise built a home on Lookout Mountain where they lived several years before moving to Hixson, Tn. The Dodsons are parents of two children:

Jeffery Robert Dodson born 3-6-1963 and Kevan Dodson born 9-25-1964.
