Dixie had a big personality and a great sense of humor. She loved to tell stories with a dramatic flair. She also loved to sing and dance. Last summer she went to a Conan O’Brien show and was selected, along with a few other audience members, to come on stage and dance a crazy dance. She gave quite a performance and won that crazy dance off.
Dixie was known for being kind and generous. She was a great, fun friend and will be greatly missed.
