Jeannine (nee Clayton) Dix, 93, of Linwood, passed away peacefully at home on March 13, 2023, surrounded by her beloved family.
Jeannine lived most of her life in Linwood before she and Jack achieved their dream of retiring to Woodstock, Vermont in 1987. They moved south to Virginia in 2002 and lived there until returning to her childhood home in Linwood, proving you can, indeed, go home again. "Nean", as she was known by all who loved her, graduated from Pleasantville High School in 1947 and The Lankenau Hospital School of Nursing in 1951, where she earned a Registered Nursing Degree. She worked many years at Shore Memorial Hospital in the emergency room and then as a floor nurse. In 1965, Nean returned to Glassboro State College (now Rowan University) and earned her Teaching and Public Health Certificate and spent many years as the Egg Harbor Township School District Nurse, traveling to the various schools in her '65 Mustang. Nean will be fondly remembered by her infectious smile and wearing something purple. She had a deep Christian faith and loved all of God's creations.
Jeannine was predeceased by her parents, James and Ella Clayton; and her husband of 63 years, John (Jack) Milton Dix. She is survived, and will be truly missed, by her children, Debbie & Mike Therriault of Westminster, SC, Michael & Junetta Dix of Linwood, and Jeff and Elaine Dix of Egg Harbor Township; her grandchildren, Kristi Therriault of Anchorage, AK., Kelli and Rob Currier of Wilson, NC., Kati and Steve Stasko of Englewood, FL., Wade and Julia Dix of Egg Harbor Township, Austin and Lauren Dix of Rock Hill, SC., and Zachary Dix and Noah Dix of Linwood; her great grandchildren, Ali and Averi Stasko, Zoey Dix and Nathan Dix; her brothers, David and Diane Clayton of EHT and Howard and Barbara Clayton of Gas City, IN; along with many cherished nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, March 30th, 2023 at Central United Methodist Church. Friends and Family are welcome to visit from 2pm-4pm. A service will be starting at 4pm. Interment is private at the convenience of the family. If you knew Jeannine, you knew her ever present smile.
