They moved back to the east coast to Queens, New York, and then to Long Island, New York. They settled in Bethpage, NY, where they added to and raised their family. They relocated to Conway, South Carolina, upon George's retirement in the early 1990s. Laurel was the glue that kept the family together. She was a strong, kind, and compassionate woman and mother. She was a second mother to many of the Dodd children's friends and was affectionately known as Momma Dodd. To her family, she had the unique and special nickname of "Woo." Laurel is survived by her sister, Claudette Gilchrist, and her husband, Charles, her sister-in law, Dorothy Ehmsen, and her brother-in-law, Donald Dodd; her children Georgette "Gigi" Kossmann and her husband, Edward, Michael Dodd, Leslie Dodd, Kimberly Flynn and her husband, Matthew, and Keith Dodd and his wife, Lisa; grandchildren Michael Vincent Dodd, Nicole Dodd, and Thomas Walters; great-grandchildren Violeta Dodd and Michael Thomas Dodd, and many cherished nieces and nephews.
