03-26-2017 - Saddened at loss of another 1958 classmate
Just received this from Sarah Wilde Wright concerning the passing of her Sister, Dixie Dixie was from Salem and a 1958 graduate... "It is with great sadness that I'm telling you my sister, Dixie Lee Wilde McAlpin went to meet her Lord at 6:20 P.M. Thursday evening, March 24th, 2017. She has lived in the Miami/West Palm Beach area for about 32 years. Her health has declined greatly in the past few years and it was time to leave her broken body and finally be at peace. She was preceded in death by of her children two children, Kendra, at age 53 July of 2013 and Stephen age 51 Oct. of 2015. Both died from related heart/hypertension problems. She has a son Douglas in Georgia, two grandsons, Richard and Thomas and three great grandchildren in North Carolina. There will be no funeral service, but a celebration of her life at a later date. She was a pretty classy gal and such a talented musician. She was a very hard act for me to follow and I am so proud to have been her little sister and have so many great memories of growing up with together. There will not be an obituary in the Salem News. Feel free to share this as you wish. Sarah"
Please pray for the family.
