Carol Ethel (Conzet) Dixon, age 85 of Annandale, passed away peacefully on May 26, 2021.
She was born on November 5, 1935 in Rockford, MN, the youngest of eight children, to George and Ethel (Snodgrass) Dixon. Carol graduated from Rockford High School with the class of 1953, and briefly worked as a legal secretary for a law firm in Minneapolis following graduation.
On June 23, 1956, she was joined in marriage to Dean “Buck” Dixon at the Buffalo Presbyterian Church in Buffalo, MN. Together they worked and raised their children on the family farm in Rockford Township. After selling their dairy cows, Buck worked as an Old Dutch route man. Carol supported him by helping deliver and re-stock product. During this time, the family also owned and operated a sod business. Carol played a vital role in that business by doing the record keeping and the scheduling of orders and deliveries. In all, they spent 48 years on the farm in Buffalo until they moved to the Duxbury area for 11 years. They have been residing in Annandale, MN after moving back from Duxbury.
Carol was an exceptional cook, and was known for making the best potato salad and pies in town. She loved to provide delicious meals for her family and friends. People always expected one of her famous dishes to be at any holiday or social gathering, and she always made sure there was enough for second helpings.
Carol had a genuine, charitable, and compassionate heart; she easily made friends with just about anybody. She had a warm and welcoming personality that made people feel right at home. Carol was a natural provider and many considered her like a second mom. Her family was her priority and she made sure that all of their needs were always taken care of, along with keeping an immaculate home.
Together with Buck, she enjoyed getting together with friends and family to play cards. They especially liked playing 500, cribbage, and Euchre.
She is preceded in death by her parents, George and Ethel; and her siblings, Alice Harff, Glenn, Vernon, Russell, Floyd, and Jimmy Conzet, and Elaine Harff.
Carol is survived by her loving husband of almost 65 years, Dean “Buck”; children, Kent (Lesley), Kay (Dale) Keller, and Karla Dixon; grandchildren, Jerome, Meighan, and Adam; great-grandchildren, Teagan and Ari; and many other relatives and friends.
