Dixie Corrine Watson

With profound sadness and a mixture of joy and faith in our Lord Jesus, the family of Dixie Watson (nee McQuaker) wish to announce her passing peacefully in the Rainy River Hospital on November 8, 2019 following a sudden onset of pancreatic cancer.

She was predeceased by her grandparents, her mother and father (Carson and Iris McQuaker) and a number of aunts and uncles.

Dixie is survived by her husband of almost 52 years, Buck Watson, their two children Cori (Rod Miller, step grandchildren Clair and Nate), Rob (Sherry, grandchildren Jamie and Jordan); all of Thunder Bay. Her immediate family, of which she was the eldest of 9, includes 6 brothers and 2 sisters along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and acquaintances. We trust you will forgive us for not trying to name them all. Dixie could sit and name them each in order from end to end but we would surely miss some and each one is too precious to be missed. Her family and friends were her passion.

After learning to live with the effects of polio as a toddler, Dixie would go on to lead a strong active life style and now are ready to her next adventure with her Saviour Jesus Christ.

A very informal Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday November 13, 2019 at 11 a.m. at the Stratton Community Hall, followed by a private family interment.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the Rainy River Hospital Auxillary, c/o Northridge Funeral Home, Box 89, Emo, ON P0W 1E0.

I am sorry for your loss. I remember Miss McQuaker as my grade 2 teacher and I was in her last class before she got married. The last time I saw her was on the street and it must have been 1968 or 9. I have no photos to share, but I remember that she stood up for right. I had to have specially built up shoes while i was in her grade. Kids bugged me about them and she never let them get away with it when she saw what was going on!

We are so sorry for your loss Buck and family. We always enjoyed when you and Dixie came to camp to visit. Sure wish we would have gotten to know Dixie sooner in life. But even the few times we visited she has left us with memories.
Her life on earth has ended but she will always be looking down at her family from heaven above.
God Bless

My most sincere condolences to Mr. Watson, Corrie, Rob and families. As a young girl, I was fortunate to meet this beautiful family and share many great memories over the years. Although distance has separated us, you all remain very dear to me. Mrs. Watson was always very special to me, and will continue to be. I am thankful for the many visits throughout the years. May you all find solace that she is at peace with Jesus. Many loving thoughts sent your way. ♥️
