Dixie was a great friend to my mother, Jackie, and my aunt Lorraine. Jackie's parents settled in Mt. Pleasant in the 1930's when her father, Claude, got a position teaching at Central. Dixie and Dick lived half a block down on Washington street, and they always came down to visit and drink coffee when we were in Mt. Pleasant. Paula was so nice to invite me down to their house to play games. It seemed like those summer days would continue forever. Dixie was so very nice to Geneva and Claude, always looking in on them and helping out as they got older and more frail. After Geneva and Claude passed on, Dixie would still drive up to Marquette to visit Jackie.

After Dixie and Dick had married and moved into the Washington Street house, Geneva went to visit her. Dixie had found pots of dirt in the basement and had intended to throw them out. Geneva realized the pots of dirt were surprise lilies wintering over. The lilies were split and repotted and redistributed so Dixie, Geneva, Jackie, and Lorraine all had some, and now my sister Faith and I have some descended from the initial batch.

Dixie was larger than life, so spirited and vivacious. We all miss her terribly. We extend our deepest condolences to Rick, Paula, and Robert.

The Sisters of Sigma Sigma Sigma send their deepest sympathies to Dixie's family. She graced us with her membership, being initiated into the Alpha Phi Chapter of Tri Sigma at Central Michigan University on May 9, 1950. We were honored that Dixie was able to join us in celebrating the chapter's 75th anniversary on April 29, 2017. She was a loyal Tri Sigma Sister "Faithful Until Death". May she rest peacefully in Omega.
