Dixie Lee Wilcox Smith, 75, died peacefully in her home surrounded by loved ones on September 4, 2020 after a multi-year battle with dementia.
She was born June 8, 1945 to Brandon Wilcox and Mary May Galloway in Montpelier, Idaho.
Dixie married Gayle Sherwin Smith on October 15, 1965 in Montpelier, Idaho. They were later sealed for time and all eternity in the Logan Utah Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Dixie was a friend to all. Put simply, she cared. She cared about her children, her husband, her nieces and nephews, sister, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, other family, friends, neighbors, and all who she came into contact with. Dixie was happiest when she was caring for others.
She is survived by her husband Gayle; children Becky Cook (Cory), Brandon Smith (Natalie), Gaylynn Applonie (Chris), Matt Smith (JaLena), and Andy Smith (Trudy); sister Lynda Mangum (Kevin); 18 grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren.
