Obituary

Marilyn S. Dixon, age 67 of Sheridan, passed away peacefully at the home of her daughter in Grand Rapids, on Thursday, July 17, 2020, under the loving care of her family and Emmanuel Hospice.

Marilyn was a loving wife, daughter, sister, aunt, mother, and grandmother. She was a stabilizing and reliable force that everyone knew could be counted on. Her kindness and compassion for others was demonstrated in all that she did. She spent 40 years working at Carson City Hospital where many of her colleagues became like family. She was married to William Dixon for 37 years until his passing in 2014. She had three children and nine grandchildren who kept her busy with sports, music, and theater. Marilyn was one of 11 siblings; she enjoyed the annual sisters-day-out and playing pranks on the brothers.

Surviving Marilyn are her daughters, Tracie (Chad) Coffman of Grand Rapids; Jennifer (Bob) Williams of Greenville; son, William IV (Molly) Dixon of Kent City; grandchildren, Andrew Bunce; Jase Bunce; Jeremiah Williams; William Dixon V; Eden Dixon; Nathaniel Dixon; Indyah Dixon; Alden Coffman and Roman Coffman; sisters, Anne (Rick) Auger of Manson, Washington; Jan (Dale) Simon of St. Johns; Mary (Bill) Fitzpatrick of Fowler; Sharon Simon of Grand Ledge; Rose (Brian) Thelen of Fowler; brothers, Dennis (Diane) Simon of Fowler; Dan (Linda) Simon of Fowler; George (Cindy) Simon of Fowler; Steve (Denise) Simon of Fowler; Jim Bunce and many beloved nieces and nephews.

Marilyn was preceded in death by her parents, Roman & Rita (Miller) Simon; husband, William Dixon III; and a brother, Jerry Simon.
