In Memoriam: Canon Judy Dodman 1938-2020

With great sadness, we share the news that Canon Judy Dodman has passed away. 

In a ministry which spanned seven bishops, Judy faithfully served in several roles at the diocesan synod office, beginning during the episcopacy of Bishop Walter Bagnall. She served as personal secretary to Bishop Clarence Mitchell; registrar of the diocesan Marriage Commission and office manager at Cathedral Place; coordinator of the Division of Outreach; interim director of Canterbury Hills; and as Secretary of Synod. 

A faithful member of the former parish of Holy Trinity, Hamilton, and more recently Church of the Resurrection, Hamilton, Judy was particularly passionate about three things: her family, her faith, and the Hamilton Tiger Cats. 

Bishop Susan Bell paid tribute to Canon Judy Dodman’s extraordinary and outstanding contributions to the life and ministry of the diocese of Niagara during a funeral service held at Church of the Resurrection, Hamilton on November 27, 2020.
