Obituary of Margaret Mary Dixon
Margaret M. (Milko) Dixon, formerly of Brookfield, wife of the late William J. Dixon, died peacefully at Bethel Health Care on Saturday, April 30th. She was born in Wall, PA on March 24, 1924, daughter of the late Andrew and Anna (Murnek) Milko.
Margaret, affectionately known as Peg, was a warmhearted and loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Peg was a woman of grace, dignity and kindness, with a wonderful smile she freely shared with strangers and friends alike. She enjoyed her family and friends, time out of doors (especially on porches overlooking lovely lakes), Jeopardy, cards, bingo, swimming and making each holiday special for her family. Peg was strong and persevering, as well as generous and giving in countless ways. She devoted herself to being a dedicated homemaker, and both before and after raising her family, she prided herself on her work ethic in various secretarial and retail positions.
Peg valued family foremost and encouraged strong faith and Christian values, including hope, compassion, gratitude and respect. She generously gave of herself volunteering time to Scouts, Catholic church and school activities, Meals on Wheels and teaching water ballet. Peg was always appreciative and fully embraced the remarkable 98 years God granted her.
She will be sadly missed by her five children, William K. Dixon (Cristina), Catherine A. Dixon, Patricia D. McClure (Hugh), Laura J. Patterson (John), and Daniel R. Dixon (Laurie), ten grandchildren, five great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Church, Brookfield, on Thursday, May 5th, at 11:00 a.m. Interment will take place at a later date in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
