Wouldn't have guessed her husband, who's 15 years her senior, would outlive her. RIP.

RIP Dixie. When I was growing up you epitomized southern women to me.

She died of complications from cancer. Rest in peace Dixie.

She was a hottie in Designing Women. Exemplified dignity and class. I actually liked her better then the others.
