Mary Lynn Miller Dixon, 52, beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 25, 2012, at her home in Suffolk, Va., surrounded by loved ones.


Mary Lynn was born in Wilmington, N.C., in October of 1959 to Mary Louise Miller and the late Charlie E. Miller. She is survived by her husband of 28 years, Alan Dixon; two daughters, Renee and Nicole; her mother, Mary Louise Miller; sisters Barbara (Mike Abernathy), Margaret (Brook Lindbert), Joan (Steve Russell), Patricia (Bob Farmer); brothers Eddie, Michael (Kathy Miller), Charles (Gigi Miller) and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by two brothers, Bobby and Paul.

Mary Lynn symbolized her dedication to Jehovah God by water baptism and remained a faithful servant until her death. She heeded Jesus’ command to tell others about Jehovah God’s wonderful promises for the future, and she looked forward to the promise found at Psalms 37:29, “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” She died knowing that she was in Jehovah God’s memory and that a wonderful life in a paradise on earth awaited her in the future (Revelation 21:3-4).
