A devoted teacher of pre-school children, she touched the lives of many young ones and left an indelible mark on their hearts and minds. Her passion for teaching extended beyond her professional life; she was a dedicated member of Meherrin Baptist Church, where she joyfully volunteered to work with children in vacation bible school and served as a Sunday School teacher. Dixie’s greatest joy came from her family. She loved nothing more than spending time with her cherished grandchildren and watching her husband, Ed, on the baseball field. Her warmth, devotion, and unwavering love will be deeply missed by those who knew and loved her. Dixie Rose Winn Courtright’s legacy of love, kindness, and dedication to her family and community will forever be remembered. May she rest in peace.
