Sue Sawyer Dixon

Sue Sawyer Dixon, age 59, of Marietta passed into the arms of her Lord May 20, 2021.

Sue was the owner and operator of Sue’s D’Zigns in Marietta for over 10 years, where she did embroidery and sewing work. She loved working in the garden, and especially enjoyed fishing. One of her favorite types of fishing was surf fishing, where she could cast off her line and then go enjoy the surf and the sand while waiting for a bite.

But even more than surf fishing, she adored deep-sea fishing, where she and her husband, Stan, could go so far out to sea that the shore was not visible and they could enjoy the tranquility of the ocean.

Sue dearly loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. She was a loving wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, and friend to so many and she will be truly missed.

Sue is preceded in death by her father, Tom Sawyer; maternal grandparents, Rev. Taft and Beatrice Owensby; and paternal grandparents, Jess and Agnes Sawyer.

She is survived by her mother, Billie Dove Owensby Sawyer of Cedartown; loving husband of 16 years, Stanley L. Dixon of Marietta; son, Cory Winnerman of Summerville, SC; step-son, Mathew Dixon of Marietta; step-daughter, Carrie (husband Brian) Wallace of Gainesville; sister, Deborah (husband, Mark) Hampton of Gainesville; brother, David (wife, Brigitte) Sawyer of Cedartown; grandchildren, Andrew Dixon, Chase Hall, Caleb Wallace, Lucy Crews, and Charlee Crews; and a host of nieces, nephews, and beloved extended family.

A graveside service will be held Wednesday, May 26th, 11:00 AM at Shady Grove Baptist Church Cemetery in Marietta with Pastor Allen Fleming officiating. The family will receive friends on Tuesday from 4:00 to 8:00 PM at Davis-Struempf Funeral Home, 1975 East-West Connector, Austell, GA 30106.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations in Sue’s name be made to the Atlanta Cancer Care Foundation at
