Dorothy's Story

Text size

Dorothy Elizabeth Dixon, 89, of Moore, went to be with her Lord Thursday, July 17, 2014. She was born Jan. 18, 1925, in Bath, S.C., to Charlie and Bertha Cosnahan. Dorothy enjoyed crocheting dolls and bedspreads. She was a private duty nurse for 13 years and was named Nurse of the Year in Augusta, Ga. She was a pastor’s wife and a faithful member of International Pentecostal Holiness Church for 57 years. When she moved to Moore, she became a member of Friendship Pentecostal Holiness Church. When her husband was transferred to Seattle for the military, a local radio station aired them as Dottie and Ray, “the Georgia hillbillies.” Dottie, as Dorothy usually went by, had such a powerful voice that when she sang she had to stand away from the microphone. Dottie’s family was everything to her. She prayed for her family and friends often, and they all knew that. She was preceded in death by her parents; loving husband of 71 years, the Rev. Ray S. Dixon; daughter, Gloria Ann Davis and husband Billy Joe Davis; and great-grandchildren, Keith Bridges and Kyle Davis. Survivors include her son, Marvin Dixon Sr. and wife Sharon of Moore; brother, JT Cosnahan and wife Mary of Evans, Ga.; sister, Nola Steimel and husband Don of Augusta, Ga.; grandchildren, Danny Bridges and wife Tina, TaShonda Dixon, Donna Copeland and husband Mike, Kenny Davis and wife Mindy, Mikki Davis and husband Rick, Terrell Dixon and Cameron Davis and wife Shauna; great-grandchildren, Nicole Copeland, Megan Copeland, Taylor Davis, Brittany Davis, Chase Cole, Davis Bridges, Justin Davis, Kaylee Davis, Ty Cole, Riley Dixon and Caleb Dixon; and by a host of loving extended family and friends. Services were July 21, 2014, at Friendship Pentecostal Holiness Church. Interment followed at Blanchard Cemetery. Condolences may still be shared at MooreFuneralCremation.com.
