    This lady was one of the treasures I remember from growing up in Mooreland. She always had a smile on her face and never treated anyone differently regardless of who you were. I feel she thought everyone was her best friend. My heart goes out to Lavoy and the whole family but after watching Facebook posts for the past few years, I know she is certainly happier now.
    You are all in my thoughts.

    My grandma always knew how to light up my day. I would come home from what I thought a ‘hard’ day in elementary school was, and she’d bounce me on her lap singing “I love you, a bushel and a peck …” She’d make my FAVORITE kind of bacon in the morning, and I knew I could count on her, and my grandpa, no matter what. Nina, you’ll always be in my heart, and I’ll pray for you everyday.

    Dixie will always hold a special place in my hear. She taught me about being a wife and mother and so much more. She was there with me when my babies were born. No one could ever replace her. She and Bud were devoted to each other and have a beautiful marriage. She was a true Christian in every sense, someone to look up to. She will be truly missed.

    Such a warm and beautiful woman. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson freely opened their home to all of us rowdy football players at PCHS, and they were consistently gracious. We lift her spirit up and pray she’s enjoying heaven’s treasures. Wishing peace and comfort to Mr. Johnson, Fonda and Serena. Love you!

    Dixie was such a loving and caring woman. She and Lavoy were such good, Godly examples to us younguns’ from church or PCHS. She was always there with a smile on her face or a funny sarcastic remark. I haven’t seen her in many years, but have such fond memories of her.

    With much love, Wendy

    I have admired Dixie since we moved to Mooreland in 1973. Missed her and Lavoy when they moved to california. I was so sorry for her troubles recently but we know without a doubt where she is. Love the family. Harry and Melba Billings

    Praying for all of the Johnson and Osborn families. Dixie was a huge bright spot in my life at a very young age. Her smile and love were so genuine! I spent time at their home making mud pies with Serena and trying to learn to roller skate, and Lavoy roasting marshmallows for us. Times of singing, and going through the old house, these are just a few of the wonderful memories I had when we they lived in Mooreland. We shared the same birthday and for many years ( up until just a few years ago) she sent me a birthday card even though they lived very far away.

    We were so blessed to be friends with Dixie and LaVoy. Dixie and LaVoy were great teachers in life and God’s love. I’m greatfull for the time we shared in Covina, on vacation in Arkansas and there visit with us in San Diego. I thank the Lord for being them into our lives.
