Dottie will always be a personal hero to me. She never sought the spotlight, in fact Dottie avoided being the center of attention.
She was such in integral and important team member in the lives and careers of literally thousands of aviation professionals - mostly US Army Aviators and Aircrew Members, though in addition many others: Flight Surgeons, Military Attaches, Aviation Reserve Component members and Aviation Law Enforcement at all levels, local, state and federal, as well.
Dottie’s modesty and humbleness belies the extensive and enduring legacy of her decades of selfless service to our nation. And especially the Aviation professionals she supported in the National Capital Region over her lengthy and storied career.
But it’s her kindness, thoughtfulness, moral uprightness and spotless integrity that made me not only admire and respect Dottie, but love her like family.
My now three grown children, when informed of Mrs Dixon’s passing remarked: “She was a lovely woman” and “I’ll always remember her snickerdoodles (cookies) and fantastic personality” and “Dottie was an amazing lady!”
The good Lord graced us with Dottie’s presence in our lives. I’ll be forever grateful for that blessing.
Rest In Peace, dearest Dottie, alongside your beloved Jim.
