ANDREA LORI DIXON January 21, 1958 - September 14, 2012 It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of Andrea Dixon on Friday, September 14, 2012 at the St. Boniface Hospital at the age of 54 years. Andrea will be lovingly remembered by her children Carmen and Derek; her brother, Ron (Denise) and her father, Frank as well as many extended family members and friends. Andrea was predeceased by her mother, Doris and her grandmother, Elizabeth Jameson. Andrea enjoyed a long-standing career as a computer programmer with Manitoba Hydro. But, she was most proud of the fact that she was a mother; Carmen and Derek were her world. She attended every hockey and baseball game, took an avid interest in their hobbies, friends and was always there when they needed her. Andrea had an eye for a great bargain, loving to go to garage sale after garage sale when the season hit. She had a wide collection of lamps, vintage perfume bottles and other antiques. She also had a keen sense for deco art; being able to put together a room like no one else. Andrea will be fondly missed for her excitement for life and generous soul that was expressed through the close network of friends that visited her often. Andrea was always there for those who needed her - a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen or to give helpful advice. She will be sorely missed. The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the nurses and medical staff of 7A West and the 8th floor Palliative Care at St. Boniface Hospital for all the compassion and support they gave to Andrea during her stay. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Andrea to CancerCare Manitoba, 675 McDermot Ave., Room ON1160, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3E 0V9. In keeping with Andrea's wishes, cremation has taken place and a memorial celebrating her life will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. in the Coutu Funeral Home's reception lounge, 680 Archibald Street.
