62 The Costume Designer Winter 2017 SCRAPBOOK A Brief Mention of a Powerhouse Friend This lady had a career worth mentioning! She may have been small but she was mighty! When Dodie Shepard made a commitment to something, she went all the way and didn't stop until it was delivered. Show up, suit up, and then pass it around. Dodie was a child actor, a studio contract player, a stunt performer, a costumer, a teacher at Columbia College of Costume Design, and a Costume Designer for film and television. Her career spanned five decades. Legendary in her generosity and her spirit, she was awarded Gold Card status by IATSE Local 705, and continued to be active in important committee work. There she led the way for members to enjoy retirement and understand the benefits of union life, a career as a way of life. For more details of Dodie Shepard's admirable story, visit the Legacy Section of the CDG website and read her Legacy Tribute by Diana Eden. The memorial service will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, March 11, at Emmanuel Church, 438 East Harvard Road in Burbank. Dodie Shepard 1934 – 2016 BY SHARON DAY
