Dixie Rae Foster Ladd, age 83, of Deckerville, passed away peacefully at her home on

Dixie was born on August 2, 1940, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Dixie was the daughter of

Dixie graduated from Evart High School in 1958. After high school, Dixie attended Bronson
Methodist Nursing Program. She married Dale Lee Ladd on December 27, 1958. He
preceded her in death August 9, 2011.
Dixie worked as a registered nurse at Deckerville Community Hospital for four decades.
She was dedicated to the Deckerville community and served as Bridgehampton Township
Treasurer for several years. Dixie was a devoted member of the McGregor Methodist
Church and enjoyed singing in the choir. A loving mother and grandmother, Dixie also
enjoyed spending time with her family and especially cooking for and spoiling her grandkids.
She is survived by her children Steve Ladd (Rhonda Landis), Jeff (Ellen) Ladd, and Tim
(Sara) Ladd; seven grandchildren Stephanie (Mitch) Cooper, Tyler (Sarah) Ladd, Sydney
Ladd (Bryce Baase), Trevin (Charity) Ladd, Kaylee Ladd, Jacob Ladd, and Kyle Ladd; one
great-grandchild Roarah Ladd; sisters Linda Johnson and Carolyn Curtin; and her faithful
furry companion, Zoey.
The family of Dixie extends a very special thanks to her closest friends in her church and
community, but especially Irene Cole, Judy Bowerman, Debbie Shaw and Connie LaPeer for their time
spent and care taken toward Dixie in her later years.
