Angela Dawn Dixon, age 47 of Eugene died September 17, 2019 in her home, after courageously fighting cancer. Angie was born August 21, 1972, DeQueen, Arkansas.
Angie moved to Gold Beach, Oregon in 1983 with her family, and graduated from Gold Beach High School in 1991. After graduating high school Angie started a career as a CNA, a profession she was very passionate about. She started working for Good Samaritan in Brookings, where she made her home for many years. Angie loved sports, she played volleyball and basketball in high school, but softball was her passion. Angie played on multiple teams in Brookings allowing her to play locally and travel to different towns for tournaments, but the “Slippery Banana Belt” was her favorite to play in and made a lot of friends. Everywhere Angie played, she would run into someone she knew. Angie also enjoyed spending time with her nieces and nephews when possible, and enjoyed taking her fur baby to play on the beach.
Angie is survived by wife Dani Tibbets-Dixon of Eugene, her fur baby Finn Dixon, twin brother Alber Dixon of Coquille, sisters Kim Holesapple of Bend, and Sheila Shaw of Burns. Angie had 5 nieces and 6 nephews, 1 great nephew, and 2 great nieces. Angie is preceded in death by her father Arthur Dixon, mother Kathryn Buckendahl, and sister Teressa Cox.
