Shirley Sasser Dixon, 85, passed away on Thursday, October 31, 2019 at Kitty Askins Hospice Center.

Shirley was born in Wayne County on October 2, 1934 to the late Edgar and Ruth Head Sasser. She was married for 52 years to the late James Franklin Dixon. For many years she worked as a bookkeeper for her husband and later as a secretary with D.T. Grantham Trucking Company. Shirley was a member of Falling Creek Baptist Church.
