Dorothy Louise Woodbury was born November 1, 1915 in St.
Paul, Minnesota to Albert George and Nellie Sofia (Wigen)
Woodbury. Early years she attended school in St. Paul until
in 1928 when she and her parents moved to Grand Marsh to
join her brother Lawrence and help with his businesses.
On April 20, 1932 she married Merle H. Podoll. Together
they operated the family dairy farm and were blessed with
seven children. In October of 1961, Merle passed away in a
car accident. Dorothy continued to farm with her family.
On August 7, 1965 she married Glenn Frozene. They farmed
and in 1966 hosted Wisconsin Farm Progress Days. In October
of 1978 they retired and moved to Friendship when Son Larry
purchased the farm. Dorothy & Glenn continued to help Larry
and son-in-law Butch with field work on the farm. This also
allowed them to spend treasured time with Granddaughters,
Chrissy, Jacki, Shelly & Jenni.
Dorothy enjoyed many camp outings at the farm & Spring Bluff
and wintering in Arizona. She enjoyed traveling, especially
Hawaii, Florida and New York. In honor of her 90th
Birthday her family took an Alaskan Cruise. Other interests
included reading, scrap booking, music, dancing and in later
years winning “blackout” in bingo.
Dorothy was a valued volunteer. She was a member of the
South Burr Oak Methodist Church where she belonged to the
UMW serving as President and Treasurer. The rural church
held chili suppers, annual summer rummage sales, strawberry
pie and ice cream socials and Bible schools where Dorothy
provided many hours of service. Dorothy was a Golden Member
of MMHC Partners working in their gift shop and providing
baked goods for their sales. She enjoyed giving to her
community by supporting the Grand Marsh Community Club, Corn
‘n Tater Festival and Harmony Homemakers. She served as an
elected school board member for many years including several
terms as treasurer.
Dorothy overcame many adversities by relying on her strong
faith and abundant love, which inspired every life she
touched. She treasured her family as they treasured her.
Her favorite quote was “I’m drinking from my saucer because
my cup runneth over.”
