Born August 9, 1945 in Muncie, IN she was the daughter of her father Richard Collins and her mothers Norma Riedel, Barbara Collins, and Ruby Adams (Grandma Mom) Dixie attended Parker High School with the class of 1963 and would later attend nursing school at Amarillo College with the class of 1990. She spent many of her years proudly being a nurse and caring for her patients. A caretaker; most simply put, this is what the selflessness of Dixie would define her to be. From raising her children, to treating her patients, or to helping raise her grandchildren, anyone in Dixie’s care knew what a radiant love felt like. She was a loving and dedicated wife and loved attending Amarillo Fellowship Church. Her passions resided in her children, her family, horses, the outdoors, cowboy decor, and her faith. Dixie had many titles and roles including Nene, Mama, wife, mother-in-law, step-mother, sister, daughter, cousin, aunt, friend, and many more, but she prioritized her role of being a servant to her faith in our Lord Jesus Christ before any other. Dixie lived her life as a mother to many, a friend to all, and a stranger to none.
