Dixie Bell Louise Paulson was born January 11, 1932 in Fort Dodge. She attended schools in Fort Dodge. She was united in marriage to Orvin G. Paulson at Trinity Lutheran Church in Deer Creek, IA on July 5, 1947 and the couple made their home near Clear Lake, IA. After two years their family moved to
Fort Dodge where they made their home. Dixie centered her life around her children, family and friends. She was a housewife, mother and devoted Christian belonging to St. Paul's Lutheran Church. Dixie loved writing poetry, walking the trails, shopping, bingo and spending time with her grandchildren. She was fun to be around and had a great sense of humor. She loved people and treated all with dignity whether the person on the street was down on his luck or anyone else. She always had time with a cup of coffee in her hands and a smile on her face to stop and talk to people to brighten their day just a little.

Dixie was diagnosed with Alzheimers and had lived at Friendship Haven the last five years. There, she received wonderful care from a team of compassionate people.

Dixie was a classy friend whom I met in High School through my friendship with Bruce. I have such fond memories of her and the way she could make me laugh. We so enjoyed her and Orv staying with us for 6 weeks after his surgery. They were like family for Mary and I. May you rest in piece my friend. I hope the fond memories we all have will sustain us in the weeks and months ahead.
