Margaret Evelyn “Scottie” Dixon was born on August 16, 1934 in Ayr, Scotland and died on May 8, 2019 in Everett, Washington. She was born to James and Mary Beaddie and sister of the late James Beaddie. Scottie was preceded in death by her husband of 44 years Bill Dixon. She is survived by her daughter Charlene and son in law Bruce Kolacki of Everett; daughter Tammy Music of Everett; granddaughter Jennifer (Thomas) Marsland of Silverdale; granddaughter Heather Music of Everett; great grandchildren Brianna, Chloe, Cooper and Colin Marsland, Kendra Weida and great great grandson Alexander Hopkins. She leaves extended family in the United Kingdom, sister in law, Elizabeth Gibson, niece Yvonne (David) Langlands, nephews Colin Beaddie and Ian (Angela) Beaddie.

Scottie met her love, Bill, while he was stationed in Prestwick Scotland. They were married in Ayr, and in 1959 they were transferred to Grand Forks, ND, this was her first trip to the United States. In 1963 they were transferred to West Ruislip England, in 1966 to Hahn Germany and in 1967 to Paine Field in Everett Washington.

While living in Scotland, Scottie had a career as a singer and dancer. She performed with the British Broadcasting Company (BBC) and was the Highland Dance Champion for western Scotland for several years, and owned her dance studio, teaching various forms of dance to over 200 students weekly. After settling in Everett, in 1968 she began a successful career at GTE, as a Customer Service Supervisor and Phone Mart Manager. She also was a Girl Scout leader, and served on the Seattle Skating Club Board of Directors.

Retiring in 1990 from GTE, she and Bill together, enjoyed travelling and their family until his death in 1999. To help fill her days after his death, she volunteered in the Mukilteo school district, helping with a reading program at a local elementary school. In January 2000 she contracted a strain of the chicken pox virus that caused viral encephalitis. Scottie overcame many obstacles as a result of this disease. She lost her language skills, and eventually her vision. In spite of these challenges, she had an amazing spirit, always a smile on her face and in her voice.

Sunrise View in Everett was her home for 15 years. The family would like to express their heartfelt appreciation to all of the staff at Sunrise View, for the care and support given to Scottie.

Evelyn, yes I knew her before she was Scottie. I have wonderful memories of working with her at the phone company. She was always happy, except when customers were waiting for help. RIP dear lady.
