Dixie was born and raised in Noble, Missouri and had worked for General Electric and the Veteran’s Administration for many years. Gerald and Dixie were members of the Boonville Church of Christ. She was always willing to help others in need and loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed cooking, canning and baking cobblers and pies.
