Dixie lived in Santa Barbara for many years working for the Santa Barbara Sheriff Dept. as a deputy. When she retired she moved to Mesa Arizona where both of her sons Danny and Douglas lived. She loved being at home with her family and cat, doing things with her family and reading her mystery books. She left behind 2 grand children, Camille and Jeffery and 1 great grand child Indie and 1 sister. She was loved by family and friends alike. She will be missed.
