Dixie L. Harden

     Dixie Lee Harden of Scottsville, passed away on Monday, January 21, 2019 in Charlottesville. 

     She was born in Iowa, and began her life traveling all over the world as a military dependent. She then married an Air Force Officer for a total of 47 years in the Air Force. She ended her travels and became a Virginian in 1986.

     She is survived by her husband, Kaye McCall Harden; her son, Christian Tyler Harden; her daughter, Suzette Kaye Oyler; three grandchildren, Harley Vagus, Dina Huston Oyler, and Moriah Faith Oyler; two great-grandchildren, Victor Sullivan and Aurora Cartwright; and her best friend, Sugar Davis.

     Dixie was a retired ER Nurse for Martha Jefferson Hospital; the first female Captain and a lifetime member of the Scottsville Rescue Squad; and one of the first female members of the Scottsville Volunteer Fire Department.  In her spare time, she became an expert horsewoman.  She is best known as a talented artist of over 100 oil paintings, many of which won prizes.  She was also a traveling painting instructor, teaching in several states. She loved traveling and visited 70 countries during her life.  Truly a remarkable woman.

     In honoring her wishes, Dixie was cremated and all services will be private.

So sorry to hear of Dixie's passing. Her parents lived in Fork Union for a time & became friends with my parents & I met Dixie at their house. She was a good daughter & checked in on her parents often. Love & prayers for her family.

Dixie was a remarkable lady. I worked with her in Fork Union for a short period of time. I remember stories of her adventures, her family and how she loved people, art and animals. Prayers for her family during this difficult time.

My sincere condolences to Kaye and the family on the passing of Dixie. She was a co worker for many years in the ER as well as a friend. I still cherish a beautiful painting she did for me of my beloved Labrador. She was so artistic and talented. She will be missed.

Kaye, I am sorry to hear of the passing of Dixie. While I have been gone from Virginia for over 25 years, the memory of those days and nights running with you and Dixie as members of the SVRS is still an important memory for me. With peace from Athens, Georgia.

My sincere sympathy to Dixie's husband and family. I painted with Dixie on many occasions. She was one of the most talented artist I've ever met. But more importantly she was one of sweetest and kindest person any one could meet. She will be missed by all.
