• Honoring OSB Patron Dody Waugh | 1935—2021 •
Dorothy Ann Currie (Dody Waugh), wife of OSB board member Eric Small, passed away peacefully at her home in Montecito, CA on May 19, 2021. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Dody was the only child of Alice Flowers and Malcolm Carmichael Currie. She attended Marlborough School and was a member of the class of 1952, and the attended Stanford and USC where she graduated in 1956 with degrees in Journalism and Elementary Education.
Dody’s time after college included work as an elementary school teacher for the 2nd graders at El Rodeo in Beverly Hills, a model for Bullocks Wilshire and a hostess for the television show “Beat The Genius”. Dody always enjoyed an abundance of friendships and an active social life.
Dody was a huge fan of large holiday celebrations and always went above and beyond to make Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter magical for her family. One of her most memorable parties was at one of her late-husband Otis’s 65th birthday where she brought in Bobby Short to play the piano while their guests danced the night away in their beautiful garden.
Her last decade was spent living in Montecito, CA where she enjoyed the small community and getting away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. Dody was asked to join the Leadership Council at The Mayo Clinic in 2007. When combined with her quick wit and joyfulness, life around Dody had no limits. Dody will be greatly missed by her family and lifelong friends, as she made the world brighter for all who had the honor of knowing her and loving her. Services will be private.
