      Aunt Dot lived in many places during her life like most of the other Franklin's & Roddy's. Here is a list of places she had lived which she supplied when applying for a job:
      Apr 1937-Jun 1939- Junneau, Alaska
      Jun 1939-Sep 1939-Portland, Oregon
      Sep 1939-Dec 1939-Sparks, Nevada

      Jul 1941-Aug 1942-Cresswell, Oregon
      Aug 1942-5 Jan 1943-Portland, Oregon.
      At the time of the 1910 census she was living with her parents and brother, Adelbert, in Tillamook, Oregon.
      Much of her life, especially when she was older, Aunt Dot lived with relatives.
      Aunt Dot worked in a laundry in Junneau, and worked for several years as a telephone operator in Woodland, Washington.
      Aunt Dot died in Grants Pass, Oregon on 21 July, 1985. She was just 11 months short of her 100th birthday.
      "Aunt Dot" is buried in the IOOF Cemetery in Woodland, Washington as are her parents.
