Dixine Davis Martin was born on July 2nd, 1940, to Albert Durward Davis (Tic) and Gladys Leona Meibos.

As Dixine realized her health was failing, her biggest request was to go home where she was comfortable and be with her son and his family with whom she has been living since her husband’s passing. During those last days, she welcomed the visits of many of her family and died in the company of her siblings and some of her children at home on March 20th, 2024 in St. George Utah at the age of 83.

As a child, Dixine went to kindergarten for two weeks in Richmond California, then moved to Cheyenne Wyoming, and was raised most of her life in Sugar House Utah. Dixine was vibrant. Selected as Queen of the church ball, and president of Lambda Delta Sigma Fraternity at the University of Utah. She was pursuing a degree in education with the intention of becoming a teacher. While attending the UofU she met Hugh Martin at the institute building during their Marriage and Family Class, and began courting, often meeting at the library where she worked. She and Hugh were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple at which point she chose to forgo her teaching pursuits to become a mother.

In her married years, she lived in various states such as New York, Florida, Texas, Utah, Arizona, and California. Dixine was preceded in death by her faithful husband Hubert C. Martin Jr. She is survived by her 2 sisters Darlene and Debra and her brother Dennis. She is also survived by her posterity; Five children, Michael, Mark, Paul, John and daughter Michelle and their spouses. She has 18 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren… and counting!

In life, Dixine was a giver. She was constantly looking for ways to serve others through not only sharing her talents, but also meals, treats, services, and an abundance of gifts.

She had an eye for beauty and found enjoyment in many things including gardening, canning, cooking, sewing, cake decorating, and crafting. She loved the cheerful color of yellow and unique yellow favorites like daffodils and the sour flavor of lemon. Dixine also loved travel and nature and found peace in the mountains and the beach, as well as at temples and LDS churches.

Her nature was very spontaneous with quick trips to her beautiful Yellowstone or popping in for visits to her children and other loved ones. She had a devotion to service, particularly in Scouting and church where she always gave her very best. Dixine loved holidays and was exceptional at celebrating them all. Along with food and festivities, family and friends would often enjoy a wonderful 4th of July fireworks display in the circle in front of her house. She was passionate about most holidays but especially Halloween. She often became swallowed up in the spirit of the season with incredible décor, sound effects, homemade root beer, and making thousands of her stunning candy apples each year for family, neighbors, and friends as well as the entire grade of her children’s school classes..

Her passions, talents, service, and love carry on through her posterity, they being the true legacy she leaves, and which was also her greatest treasure.

Memorial services for Dixine will be held at Memorial Redwood Mortuary and Cemetery on April 1st at 10:30 AM with the Interment following the service. The family viewing will begin at 8:30 AM.
