Obituary for Dixie Eileen Mathews

Dixie Elieen Whitley Mathews was born to Odessa (Evans) Whitley and James Birdie Whitley on September 4, 1944. Dixie grew up in the prairies of New Mexico and west Texas. During her 74 years, Dixie has been a homemaker and housewife and had a few part time jobs. Dixie loved working at Stillwater Milling feed store where she made many life long friends. Dixie liked to play cards and visit with her friends, but most of all she loved to travel and see new places. Her favorite places to visit were Ruidoso, New Mexico, Eureka Springs, Arkansas, and Las Vegas, Nevada. Her favorite trip of all was an Alaskan cruise with her husband, Jim.

She loved watching her kids and grandkids growing up and could always be found at any sporting events supporting her loved ones.

Dixie will be missed by many friends and family. We will always remember her generosity and putting others before herself.

She was preceded in death by her parents and 2 great grandchildren.

Dixie is survived by her husband James Mathews of the home; two sons Kevin Wilda and wife Tammie of Chickasha, Troy Wilda and wife Pamela of Guthrie; two grandchildren Trisha Wilda of Pueblo, Colorado, Heath Wilda and wife Daryl Ann of Perry; one great granddaughter on the way; many nieces and nephews; and stepsons Scott and Chris Mathews and grandson Dane.

The family would like to express a great deal of gratitude to Barbara Wilson and Frankie Langford.
