Dixie A. Welms Reedy Gracy, 81, of Excelsior Springs, Mo., went to live with the Lord on Saturday, October 14, 2017 after losing her battle with cancer.
She was the daughter of Lester C. and Twila (Miller) Welms born on April 29, 1936 in Oil City, Penn.
She eventually made her home in Seymour, Ind., where for many years she worked for Stahl Shoes as a sales person. After several years she moved back to Pennsylvania where she met and married Albert Gracy on June 7, 1986. He preceded her in death. While in living in Franklin, she continued her education and began work as a medical office manager. For many years she was employed by Dr. Michael Binder in Franklin, Penn. She eventually transferred to Tampa Fla., when Dr. Binder moved his practice there. Since then she lived in Dothan, Ala., Belton, Mo., Lowery City, Mo., and finally Excelsior Springs, Mo.
Survivors include a daughter, Becky (Reedy) and husband, Mac McClellan of Excelsior Springs, Mo; a son, Dana and wife, Linda (Claycamp) Reedy of Columbus, Ind.; grandchildren, Rusty, Shawn, Lindsay, Rachel, Brent, Robbie and Stacie. She is also survived by her 20 great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.
She is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Larry; sisters, Linda (Covey) and Sandy (Fox); and beloved Bear (her precious Goldendoodle).
Dixie’s wishes were to be cremated. A service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 28, 2017, Pisgah Baptist Church, 112 Pisgah Drive, Wood Heights, Mo. A celebration of life will be held at a later date in Seymour, Ind.
Our Sincere Condolences
U know in my heart that Dixie is at peace now-no more suffring or pain. She was a dearly loved friend and will be missed by so many.
I ALSO know in my heart that she’ll still be watching over all those friends, and of course, her family, each and every day. I will treasure and be thankful for the wonderful memories that she was a part of.
Love you much, Dixie!
My deepest sympathy to the family. May God take her under His hand let her suffer no more. For the short time I knew her she was a special person full of life spirit. May you hurt no more and watch over her loved ones now that she is in heaven. Love you Dixie, rest in peace.
Love, Lance Shoemaker
