Lola Halcomb Dixon was born on April 8, 1915 to Nerva and Bee Halcomb. In August of 1936, she married
Gillis Dixon. This union brought forth ten children; eight sons, Herbert, Harold, Eumble, Manuis, Orville, Ellis,
Herman and Vernon Dixon; and two daughters, Janiva Sexton and Irene Cook.
Lola had 23 grandchildren, 46 great grandchildren, and 4 precious great-great-grandchildren, having a legacy
of five generations before her passing. On October 26, 2002, at the break of dawn, Lola entered into eternal
life. She fell into the Lord’s arms as she lay in her bed asleep.
Lola loved her church and enjoyed many meetings filled with singing and preaching. Joy and happiness filled
her heart as you could see on her face when she walked through the church doors. The love that Granny (as
she was so often called) had was shown through all she had done for her family. The many meals that she
cooked for the children and grandchildren could not be numbered. Each meal was cooked with love and
kindness. Her love extended not to just her family but to anyone who came through her door. Her home and
table were always open. She is so greatly missed and thought of each day. Knowing she is in Heaven with the
angels is what eases our loss.
We love you Mom.
We love you Granny.
