Dixie's Tombstone

Dixie met an untimely death on Feb 14, 1979 in San Jose, CA.  Dixie filed for divorce in 1979 and the judge ordered Dixie to let Johnny Hall have visitation with Nikki the day before the divorce hearing on February 14.  Johnny Hall came to Dixie's mother's apartment where Dixie and Nikki were staying, but instead of visiting with Nikki, he fired several shots killing Dixie. By a miracle, Nikki was unharmed.  Dixie's body was transported to Oklahoma for her funeral and burial in the Berlin, OK cemetery.  With permission from the other brothers and sisters, Dixie's sister Joy then adopted Nikki and raised her as her own.
