Dixon


Glenda Vee Dixon (Woodard) of Princeton, Texas passed away December 30, 2020 at the age of 69. She was born on February 19, 1951 to Truman ""Bow"" Glenn Woodard and Genevieve Marquette Woodard (Gantt) in McKinney, Texas. She grew up helping her mom and dad run 380 Cash & Carry in Princeton, Texas and throughout her life shared endless stories about how her mom and dad never let anyone go hungry, and often bragged about the many T-bone steaks she herself had eaten.

Glenda is survived by her loving husband, Denny Dixon of Healdton, Oklahoma; her beloved nine children; sons, Scotty (Lisa) Gibson, Bryan Gibson, Gifford Dixon, Beau (Rhonda) Dixon, Parker (Katie) Dixon; daughters, Keelee (Mark) Page, Laura (Royce) Dixon, JoDee (Aaron) Scissors and Jenne Dixon; her 18 grandchildren, Kaitlyn, Allee (Justin), Jaylen, Addison (Sam), Avery, Abigail, Cora, Hudson, Hendricks, Birdie, Truman, Grace, Josie, Shaw, Marquel, Adam, Mira and Ava; brother Raymond Glenn Woodard and niece Nicki Woodard. Glenda was preceded in death by her parents and her nephew, Rowdy Woodard.

Grace, love, and the life of the party - if those words have ever been strung together in a sentence it had to be about Glenda. She never met a stranger and she never let someone in need of food, shelter, furniture, a Christmas tree, a baseball mitt, a t-shirt or even a scoreboard go without one. She lived to serve and wouldn't hear a word about it if you asked her to stop and take a moment for herself; people were her life and her peaceful place.

""Hi you've reached Glenda, aka Mom, aka Grandma. Leave your name and number and I'll get back to you."" This was Glenda Vee's voicemail. Of all the things she was and could do, for her, she was just mom and grandma. If you needed a mom, she would be yours too. Her hugs were healing and her smile a light in the darkness.

In high school, she was a legendary majorette – twirling fire batons and doing high kicks and a full split. On any given day, you could give her a baton and she would roll it across her fingers and whip it around her back like she hadn't missed a beat. She loved sports and traveled thousands of miles across the country and the DFW metroplex with her children to see them play, and bring them a Snickers and a Gatorade to recharge for the next game. She loved being ""Coach's Wife"" and traveling with her husband to watch his teams play. She loved globetrotting with her daughters from NYC to Vegas, Greece to Seattle, Puerto Rico to San Antonio; all she had to hear was ""Momma, come on"" and she had her bag packed. During the week you might find her planting roses at First Christian Church of Princeton or adding flowers to graves that didn't have any at the cemetery. On weekends you would get football score updates from Glenda on the Dallas Cowboys, Mizzou Tigers, OU Sooners, Red Raiders, Texas Aggies, UT, Maryland, and/or UNT depending on which school or team her kids were cheering for. She loved Elvis, Blake Shelton, Scotty playing the guitar, dancing and pie. But most of all, she loved people.

A private family-only service will be held on Saturday, January 9th at 1:00 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Princeton, Texas. Friends and extended family of Glenda are invited to join the service via live stream from the safety of their home or the church parking lot. A link to the live stream will be shared on Glenda's Facebook page, or contact the family for instructions on how to access the live stream service. Following the family-only service, a drive-by memorial will be held from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. within the First Baptist Church parking lot. Masks and social distancing are required to participate in the drive-by tribute.

The family is accepting flowers or contributions made in Glenda's honor to the Dallas Christian College Athletic Fund at www.dallas.edu/give-living-stones-and-scholarships/

I am so saddened by the passing of Glenda. I’ve known Denny for the last almost fifty years. He and their children have lost a huge influence in their lives. She was a wonderful mother, wife and friend to all. RIP, Glenda.

Glenda was a joy to know. We spent a lot of time together watching baseball and softball games our kids played together. She was a one of a kind lady and we will miss her dearly. Shelley and I loved her very much. We will see her again some day. We look forward to that.

Truly a fantastic person who helped mold winners. Never out front expecting credit but always steady and getting what needed to be done, done. She set the perfect example of this by showing her Love and support for The McKinney Mavericks Baseball Program and of course for Coach Dixon. She was truly an asset to any thing she was involved with and will me missed. Thanks for all you did for us Glenda either knowingly or not we Loved you and will see you on the Big Diamond in the Sky.

Glenda was a blessing to the DCC Baseball boys and made sure they were fed and loved them very much. She was never a stranger to the parents of the players and talked to everyone. She has left a footprint in everyone’s heart she crossed path with. She will be missed.

Knowing "Mama Dixon" (my name for her) for almost 15 years, I was honored to know her. She gave good, genuine hugs, was always down for Pancho's Mexican Buffet, welcomed me like family when my good friend, JoDee, introduced us, and was always on the go!!! I told JoDee, "Tell Mama Dixon to sit down somewhere!" when she informed me she was sick. I just knew after beating cancer, she could pull through anything. This one stings! Love you always, Mama Dixon. ~Crystal Gross and family
