May 14, 1960 - March 10, 2022
Michelle Monique Dixon, 62, of Dutch Flat, CA, passed on to her final adventure on March 10, 2022. Born May 14, 1960, in Miami, Florida, she was the daughter of Roger A. Dixon and Margie Sue Collins (Dixon). The details of where she lived or worked feel trivial when you consider who she was and how she lived. Michelle was known to be peaceful, kind, gentle, and loving to all who knew her. While she had a dry sense of humor, she didn’t have a mean bone in her body. She was always an artist and loved to “find the artist within” each of us. She touched many hearts as an Art Docent, often staying in touch with her students and supporting them on their own art journeys. She was passionate about helping others, those in need, and was generous to a fault. She was strong and courageous and showed many that you can thrive and live a fulfilled life with a mental illness. She knew the healing power of art. Before she died, she was working to become certified as a peer counselor in order to expand her loving kindness to those who needed support. Michelle loved being a mom, and an Auntie Go-Go to many great nieces and nephews and even local kids. She talked on the phone every single day to a differing rotation of family, loved ones, friends, and acquaintances. She loved her little family so fiercely! She was so proud of her daughter and loved spending time with her husband. They were still so in love after 32 years together. Michelle was absolutely a Florida girl, loved to bask in the sunshine, loved visiting the beach, and loved-loved-loved listening to Jimmy Buffet. She was a free spirit whose light will continue to shine on us all together in community. As a beloved wife, mother, sister, and friend; she will be sorely missed by all who knew her. She is survived by her husband of 32 years, Sean D. North; daughter Margie R. Dixon-North and son-in-law Joseph A. Koons of Auburn, CA; step-mother Jean Devane of Winterhaven, FL; brothers Scott A. Dixon (Rebecca) of Dora, AL, and Brett O. Dixon of Largo, FL; sisters Dawn Dixon Cotter (Nicholas) of Georgetown, SC, and Donna Kilby of Winterhaven, FL; father-in-law David R. North Sr. of Morgan Hill, CA; sisters-in-law Marjorie A. North Curtis of Denver, CO, and Denise K. Hall of Sparks, NV; brother-in-law David R. North Jr. of Auburn, CA; nieces and nephews, Alexandra Cotter Wilkins, Matia C. Dixon, Dylan A. Dixon, Katie E. Dixon, Sarah Elizabeth Kimbrell Sanders, Samuel A. Dixon, Jacob C. North, and Maxwell D. Curtis; great-nieces and great-nephews, Ruby K. North, Aria R. A. North, Benjamin A. North Jr., Novalee B. Silva, Odette E. Silva, Everett W. Silva, Grayson J. Sanders, and Sebastien S. Wilkins. She was preceded in death by her mother, her father, her sister, Celeste A. Dixon, her nephew Benjamin A. North Sr., and her great-nephew, Maddux B. Silva. Following a private, family burial, a potluck Celebration of Life will be held from 12:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 26, at the Independent Order of Odd Fellows Lodge, 32775 Main St, Dutch Flat, CA 95714.
