Linda Arlette Dixon

August 16, 1953 - December 8, 2019

Linda Arlette Dixon was born to Rev. Robert James and Ethel Deloris Dixon in St. Louis, Missouri, on August 16, 1953. She was the first of three children born from that union. She was preceded in death by both parents, her brother, James Tyrone Dixon, her granddaughter, Antionette Shantell Arlette Wilkins and her grandson, Dante Terrell Jacobs. <br /> Linda accepted Christ as her Savior at an early age and was baptized at West End Mount Carmel Missionary Baptist Church under Rev. Arthur Mitchell, Pastor. <br /> Linda attended Sumner High School in the city of St. Louis. Although she did not graduate high school, she went on to earn her GED. She graduated from St. Louis University with her B.S. in Social Work in 1987. She later began working to earn a Master of Social Work at Washington University and Master of Divinity at Eden Seminary. She also pastored Scott's Chapel United Methodist Church in Hannibal, Missouri. <br /> Linda dedicated her life to serving others. She served in the United States Army as a reserve Soldier, worked for United Cerebral Palsy, Parents as Teachers, and Special School District. She also worked for ALM Hopewell Center and Department of Mental Health where she served individuals diagnosed with mental disabilities. <br /> Anyone who knew Linda knew that she was a lover of learning as evidenced by the many books she often read. Anyone who truly knew her knew that her favorite book to read was the Bible. <br /> At the age of sixty-six, Linda, a five-year breast cancer survivor and fierce protector of her children and grandchildren, was unexpectedly called home to be with her Creator on December 8, 2019. To cherish her fond memories, she leaves: three daughters ~ Tiffany Noel Dixon (Kimberly R. Price), Tracei Nichole Dixon, and Courtnei Tennille Dixon; nine grandchildren ~ Darnell, Courtney, Zachary, Nicholas, Cameron, Ashlee, Corey, Cortez, and Jeremiah; an extended granddaughter ~ Khambry; two great grandchildren ~ Antonio and Elijah; one sister ~ Letitia Ann Dixon; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, co-workers and friends. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> She treasured and continued her relationship with Christ until her last day here on Earth.
