It is with sympathy that the management (Eddie and Jackie Nelson) and the support staff of Nelson’s Funeral Home announce passing of Ms. Debby Dixson, 72, of Ridgeway, South Carolina.

Ms. Dixson's earthly life journey ended Friday, October 28, 2022. 

In the afternoon on Friday, October 28, 2022, our sweet Debby went to be with the Lord.   We were blessed to have her in our family.  Debby was born March 8, 1950 to the late Mary Frances Seay and Robert E. Seay and Billy Don Dixon.

Debby has resided at Ridgeway Manor for the past year and a half.   Over the last two weeks, her health declined.   Our family is very grateful for the loving care that was provided by the caregivers affiliated with Amedisys Hospice in her final days, as well as, the CNAs, nursing and dietary staff that all loved her.  Your love for Debby while in your care has been a comfort to her and our family.

Debby was a bright light in our life.   She had a challenging life with many obstacles that started at a young age.  At the age of three, Debby was hit by a car and suffered a major brain injury.   She lived at home with our mother and family until a few months before our mom’s passing.   She was placed in a group home for her daily care but was always at the center of our family.   After thirty-five years in a group home, she was moved to Ridgeway Manor following a stay at Lexington Medical Center leaving her unable to walk.   Having her so close to home was a gift.   We were blessed to have her close by this last year and a half.

Debby will be remembered for her love of the simple things like a bottle of coca cola, peanut butter cups, singing songs, taking cheesy pictures, a new pink purse, dolls and coloring. She loved getting all dressed up, having her hair brushed, stuffed animals, dolls and barbies, strong smelling perfumes and visits with family.  It was during our visits on the porch at Ridgeway Manor and in her room that time quickly went by.   Now she rests in Heaven, free of pain, in the company of Jesus, our mama, sister and fathers that predeceased her.

We are sure they were all eager to be reunited with her again and would be waiting with a bottle of coca cola.

Debby is survived by her sister, Robbie Seay (Dan) Martin; brother Robert “Bobby” E. Seay, Jr.; nieces Kimberly Rowell Shealy and Sunnie Caroline Seay; nephews, Travis Rowell and Ryan E. Martin; one great-niece and four great-nephews.

In addition to her parents, Debby was preceded in death by one sister, Barrie Jean Rowell.

In lieu of flowers, please give a simple gift to someone you love in her honor and have a coke to toast her precious life.

Arrangements are forthcoming.
