Grace Helen Dixon was a dedicated nurse, teacher, sister, wife, mother, aunt, grandmother and friend. Her philosophy in life is summed up by one of her favourite quotations, drawn from Mark Train: “There is no such thing as an uninteresting life ~ such a thing is an impossibility. Beneath the dullest exterior – there is a drama, a comedy, a tragedy.”
