Dixie was born June 19, 1931, in Silver Creek, NE to Chester and Yvonne (Murry) Brummett. She graduated from Silver Creek High School and later married the late Burl Weldon on October 3, 1948, in Silver Creek, NE. To their union, they were blessed with eight children; Bruce B. and wife Lois of Lawrence KS, Dudley D. Weldon and wife Joy of Gilbert, AZ, Marcia L. and the Late Richard Docekal of Ogallala, NE, Murray J. and Lucie Weldon of Lake Lotawana, MO, Jody Y Weldon of Tucson, AZ, Curtis R and Corinne Weldon of Hiawatha, KS, Nancy J. Peta of Hendersonville, TN, and James L. and Josephine Weldon of Lawrence, NE.

Dixie worked various jobs through-out her young life and was an avid sports fanatic. She was a member of the Sutton Federated Church, and the American Legion Auxiliary. She enjoyed discussing sports of all kinds and the occasional political banter. She loved playing bridge, reading a good book, but most importantly she treasured her time with her family and especially her grandkids.

Dixie is survived by one sister, Marguerite (Punkie) Galusha of Lake Worth, FL; 22 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Burl; one grandchild, Rachelle Renee Peta and son-in-law, Richard Docekal.

We are saddened by the passing of Dixie who has been a part of our family for as long as any of us can remember. One of her children was named after our family name, Murray, and visits were often when the children were younger. Our relationship has been kept fresh through two of Dixie's children for which we are thankful. She was always a great fan of the Murray family and ready to engage in conversation. She loved to get below the "flowers" of conversation and find out what was really going on. She didn't shy away from good but hard questions about values of family and politics. Always fun to be around. So sorry it wasn't more often in later years. Our condolences to the Weldon family.
