Dodd was born in 1982 in Sebastian County, Arkansas, and her mother died when she was 16, her father raised her and five brothers after their mother died.
Dodd was worried that there was no day to honor and praise her father who raised her and five younger brothers alone. So she decided to celebrate the occasion that was on June 5, her fatherâ€™s birthday, but the day was later pushed to Sunday, June 19, 1910.
