Mary Mildred Dixon Hood Obituary
Mary Mildred Dixon Hood

Pensacola - Mary Mildred Dixon Hood, age 95, the widow of Clyde R. Hood, of Pensacola, Florida, departed unexpectedly for her Heavenly Home, 19 Nov. 2019. A Finance graduate of University of West Florida, she was active in charitable and civic activities, and retired from various careers, including Pensacola School of Liberal Arts, and the Escambia County Courthouse. Born in Clover, South Carolina, she married Clyde after he was discharged from the CCC, and the couple moved to Pensacola for him to work in the Hood family dairy on Brent Lane.

Mildred was an active member of First Baptist Church from 1943 to her death in 2019.

Mildred's family traces itself back to Col. Frederic Hambright who fought and died in the American Revolution.

She is survived by her brother, Glen Dixon; sister, Amanda Dixon Tucker, both of North Carolina; daughter, Mary Frances Smith, of Titusville, FL and son, Robert R. Hood, of Pensacola; two grandchildren. David Smith, St. Augustine, FL and Valerie Smith Wood May, Titusville, FL and five great-grandchildren, Rebecca, Savanna, and Georgia Smith, John and Slyla Wood, all of Florida's east coast and various nieces and nephews in the Carolinas and Quito, Ecuador.

Mildred raised her children with the consistent admonition of, "Never tell a lie" and her children continue being impressed that neither Mildred nor Clyde ever raised their voice while parenting. Her departure will be mourned by many.

A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, November 25, 2019 at 10:30 am at First Baptist Church, 500 N. Palafox St., Pensacola, FL 32501.
