Dixie Dru Hirsch

EDMOND —     Dixie D. Hirsch, 76, was born in Pampa, Texas to Edgar and Josey Everett. Later, she grew up in Electra, Texas before attending and graduating from Baylor as an Art major. In 1960 she met Bob Hirsch, a young Air Force Lieutenant, and they married in 1961. He was her own true love for 52 years. Later, Bob entered the corporate world and they began a life that became enjoyable, entertaining and filled with friends from Canada to Puerto Rico.

    Dixie was bright, engaging and had a life filled with accomplishment as an interior decorator, antique dealer and business owner. But, she always believed her sons and grandsons to be her greatest accomplishment. She adored them and raised each with immense love and understanding. She was always there to listen and guide them. She possessed that special gift, the gift of unbridled love. She was full of life with a pleasant, beautiful smile that brought you joy.

    She is survived by her husband Bob, son Chuck, grandsons Wiley and Cole.

    She was preceded in death by her oldest son Rob, who passed away September 12, 2013. Dixie Dru, we loved you so.

    Funeral services will be 10 a.m. Saturday, October 5, 2013 at Matthews Funeral Home Chapel, with interment to follow at Gracelawn Cemetery.
