Dixie was 57 years a devoted wife to Johnny. The biggest joys in her life were her 9 children. She loved to sew, to knit, to quilt, and best of all the loved to cook. Dixie was best known for those weekly spaghetti dinners every Sunday. You were always welcome. And you haven’t lived until you tasted one of her delicious pies.

She will be dearly missed.

The Rizzotti family would like to thank everyone

to them through the past month of losing

both Johnny & Dixie Rizzotti.
