Roxie & Family,
I am so sorry that you lost your beloved Mother. I don't get the paper and I just saw her obituary that was posted on the Met Life Facebook page. If I would of known at the time I would have gone to visit her at the manor & went to the funeral. I tried a few times to reach out to her when I hadn't heard from her. I was her friend & hair dresser. Dixie was a wonderful woman & friend. I miss her.
You have my deepest sympathy.
I will keep your family in my prayers.
God Bless,
Florie Schlosser

So sorry I wasn't able to make the service. Dixie was one of my favorite customers at Valley Dairy, and I will always remember the talks she and I had. So happy she is at peace now, but will always miss her and think of her fondly. My sympathies.

I've known Dixie since 1954.. I'm home from S.C. and was shocked to read of her passing. My thoughts go to Roxie, and David, and Family, but they may not remember me.

Dearest Janet and Roxie so sorry to read of Dixie passing. No words to express can help. I do know how you are feeling. I lost Robin(my daughter)in August last year and brother Rod in October. Thinking of you and your family. Remembering Dixie and your Mother from the good old days. GOD BLESS YOU ALL. LOVE Rita
