INMAN, S.C. - Mrs. Jane Lindsey Norris Dixon, 84, died Friday, April 30, 2010, at Rose Crest Health Care Center, Spartanburg, South Carolina. Born January 21, 1926, she was the daughter of the late Owen Lindsey and Jamye Lindsey of Swainsboro, Georgia. Her beloved husband of 30 years, Bill, predeceased her. The 33rd annual Bill Norris Memorial Golf Tournament, was held last weekend in Thomson. After returning to her hometown, Swainsboro, she married Dr. Madison Dixon, who also predeceased her.

She was a lifelong member of the Baptist Church serving three-year olds for 40 years at the First Baptist Churches in Thomson and Swainsboro. Her deep faith, sweet spirit, and joyful teaching touched the lives of countless children as she faithfully proclaimed who Jesus is. As a 1946 graduate of the Georgia State College for Women at Milledgeville she began and ended a 30 year teaching career at Thomson High School, where she lovingly worked with many Jr/Sr Proms, and was particularly dedicated to the senior classes, serving as a senior class advisor and an advisor for the senior trips and graduations. She was especially proud of the many awards that her Business Education students won over the years.
