Dixie pursued her dream of becoming a nurse where she spent many years caring for others from her hometown in Sayre venturing all the way to Texas. Her passion was to care for those in need which later blossomed into becoming a personal caretaker to many special family members. Dixie was full of life. Her heart was so giving and full of so much love, she was supportive to all, no matter what the circumstances.

She was an inspiration to never give up, always strive for the best, never back down from a challenge, love wholeheartedly and never fear a single thing. If there is one person in this whole world that overcame all obstacles, always stayed true to herself and prevailed with grace and dignity it was Dixie. No words could truly describe how much she is loved in return and treasured beyond all measure and because of her, her family knew of no other way but to live by example. Dixie’s legacy will live on through growth and development of her cherished grandbabies. Who have devoted their life to be all that they are and all that they will become because of the love and guidance they were granted from their precious Momma who was delivered to this world as a special order.
