Sweet lady....she will be missed.

We fondly remember Dixie and Eddie. They were classmates at Monroe Center High School and we were two of three couples with both in the class of 1965. Dixie will linger in our memories as the "lead" cheerleader and as an all-round great person. We send our condolences to her family.

We met Dixie when she worked at Brennan's. When we delivered produce we loved visiting with her. So sorry for your loss. She was a good friend. Aultman Produce Greenville, Ohio
