Margaret Dix

November 13, 1926February 6, 2020

Margaret “Margie” Mary Dix, 93, passed away peacefully on February 6, 2020. Margie was born on November 13, 1926 in San Antonio, Texas, to Patrick and Elizabeth Farrell. She married in December 1956 to the love of her life, Frank S. Dix Jr. They built a life and legacy together that has been passed to all generations to follow.

Her hard work and dedication led her to a 56-year career working for Western Union, at the age of 16, to retiring from Tesoro Petroleum Co.

She was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a friend who will be dearly missed. Her energy and love for life was infectious to anyone who knew her. We will remember her sassy spirit and the way she could always make us laugh.

She is survived by her children, Steven (Janie) Hibdon, Frank Dix III, and Missy (David) Buchhorn; proud “Mommom” to Michael (Brandy), Kristy (Eric), Matthew, Ashlie (Cody) and Shelly (Colby); great-grandmother to Paige, Ainsley, Ryleigh and Jett. She was preceded in death by her husband of 49 years.

I never met Mrs. Dix but she was friends with my mother (Hazel Duncan-decd) and she told my mother that when she was at the cemetery decorating her husband's grave, she would look over at my parents' grave and if it was undecorated, she brought extra flowers to decorate their graves. And she did! Thank you, Mrs. Dix for remembering my parents. I will return the favor when I visit Sunset. Love, Robin

I adored this precious lady! She had such a lively personality. The first time my husband met her was at the Tesoro picnic at Don Strange Ranch. We were walking into the pavilion to register when someone came up and slapped my hubby on the bottom. Upset at first, we whirled around to find Marge laughing her beautiful laugh. Needless to say, the three of us began laughing at her antics. She said, "Well, Mona, I knew it was you so this had to be your hubby!" She's probably still making Ralph laugh in Heaven. And the stories she could tell about her and Frank kept us all in stitches. I know God welcomed her with open arms! Hope your memories help heal you heart.

I only met Aunt Margie once, but she was the livliest person who always was a joy to be around. We still tell stories in Washington about how fantastic and hospitible she was. Like when she kept her house at 60 degrees because Washingtonians were visiting and the air conditioner froze over.
I will miss her!

Mom mom had the best laugh and considered me like a daughter, which was my great privilege. Our trip to Ireland was one of the highlights of my life. Her love for her family unmatched. I will miss her!
