Ginger McGuire Dixon, 76, of Parsons, passed away at 9:09 a.m., Friday, November 25, 2022 at the Presbyterian Manor in Parsons.
Jamesine Virginia McGuire was born on August 29, 1946, to James W. and Alice V. (Lewis) McGuire in Columbus, Kansas. As a young girl, she grew up and attended school in Cottage Grove, Oregon. In 1961, she moved with her family to Labette County and she attended Labette County Community High School.
In September 1962, Ginger and Raymond E. Dixon, Jr. were united in marriage. The family settled in the Parsons area and Ginger worked in various jobs, retiring from Labette County Medical Center in 1984 as a respiratory therapist.
As Ginger said herself, “I enjoyed people.” One could tell by the many people she helped by being a caregiver for the elderly, a foster parent and as a Big Sister to many young people. In her younger years, she enjoyed playing bingo. Many families were blessed by the baby blankets she loved to make. She also enjoyed crocheting and doing embroidery.
