Ruby Dixie, 83, beloved sister and aunt passed away on Friday, Dec. 9, 2011. Born in Mattydale, Ruby spent most of her life in Washington, D.C., moving back to Cicero in 2002.
A very active and involved woman, she worked for George Washington University Hospital as manager of the anesthesiology department for many years. She loved her church and spent many hours as a volunteer and deacon. Ruby was very patriotic and was most proud of her volunteer work at the White House under several presidents. Her greatest passion was showing family and friends “her D.C.”
Surviving Ruby are her sister, Barbara (James) Stearns, and her loving niece and caretaker, Carol (Jeffrey) and their daughter Erica LeMon. Other nieces and nephews include Dixie, Michael (Joanne) and their daughter Julia, Jack Warner, David and Richard Wheeler, David (Patti) and their sons Ryan and Benjamin Dixe, sister-in-law Helen Dixe and long time family friend, Elsie Wilson.
Graveside services will be private. Donations in Ruby’s honor may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association Central New York Chapter, 441 W. Kirkpatrick Street, Syracuse, NY 13204.
