Mrs. Donna Tapper Dixon, 56 of Stone County, was called home to be with the Lord on Nov. 15, 2013. The angels received a very special angel that day.
Donna was born Nov. 10, 1957 in Jackson County. She is deeply loved by her family and friends. Her smile was affectionately known by many. She loved baking cookies and sharing them with family and friends. Everyone enjoyed “cookie day” with Donna. She loved her husband and children deeply and the twinkle of her eyes is grandson, Aiden. She will be greatly missed by all. Donna was a GED graduate of Moss Point High School Class of 1975 and a member of Big Level Baptist Church of Wiggins. She worked for Stone County School system in the cafeteria as a sub, and then went full time as a cashier for 20 years. The children loved Mrs. Donna.
