    Our sweet Aunt Dixie will sure be missed. She had a smile and always a kind word for everyone she met. Prayers out to Becky and the girls. I know Uncle Bill has welcomed her in heaven.

    The world has lost a nice lady. She was a bright light for Wiggins church and for Extension Homemakers in Washington County.
    She is sparkling in heaven.

    Our prayers for comfort to the family of Dixie. She was truly an Angel here on earth. I remember many years and memories of her at Wiggins Methodist Church. As a child she took me to Vacation Bible School there and then later in life I had the pleasure of being around her in many event there. She truly had a servants heart. Heaven just received back one of their Angels. Miss you Dixie.

    This great lady was a big part of my life as I grew up. She taught my girls Sunday school class and always made it a fun time for us. She would host bunking parties for us and many other activities. When we married she was teaching at Wiggins Methodist Church. Our children both had her as their Sunday school teacher. She will be missed. Our love to the family.

    I wanted to say this today at the funeral but couldn’t get the words out. Dixie and Beulah and Marie McClinton, and Betty Battenfield were the pillars of Wiggins and why I have stayed there over 60 years. They were such examples of Christian women that I looked up to all my life. I remember when they would bring the girls to Sunday School when they were visiting. I was a teacher for a while. One day in church I asked for prayers for someone and she called me later that day to ask the name as she didn’t catch it. She said she always prayed for people by name. I will never forget that. I know her prayers were earnest and heartfelt. Never heard her say a bad word about anyone.

    Our deepest condolences to the family of Mrs. Morris. She was an amazing lady and generous neighbor. With the help of her and Mr. Morris I learned to ride a bike with elegance and grace. You will forever be missed.
