Dixie was born on November 29, 1936, in Momeyer, N.C., to her parents Vernon Jackson and Johnnie Taylor Jackson. She was a faithful and loving wife to Leslie Ray Dew for over 40 years.
Dixie was also a loving and supportive mother. She had a profound sense of right and wrong and strong expectations that her family always do what is best. One of her great joys in life was spending time with her three grandchildren.
Dixie worked for a number of years as an elementary school teacher's aid. She was well liked by her colleagues. Her students loved to have her read to them.
Dixie enjoyed the beauty of flowers and gardening. After her retirement, she served as a volunteer at the N.C. Arboretum on Oleander Drive. She also loved bird watching.
Reading was another of her great passions. She was an avid reader and volunteered for a number of years in support of the book sales at the public library. She was also a member of a ladies book club.
