“As I Leave this Earth among the stars, I soar rising higher to Thee I cannot ask for more. But to fly with wings unfurled to reach the vast beyond, My spirit is of the universe; the universe is where I belong.” Navajo, J.C. High Eagle

JUDITH BOCOCK DIXON, 74 of White Gate, VA busted Heaven’s gates open Thursday, June 21, 2018 following a courageous battle with cancer. She was born August 30, 1943 in Roanoke, VA, the daughter of the late Floyd William & Lucy Coon Bocock. She enjoyed life. She travelled and explored the country searching for love and excitement in everyone she met. She loved to dance and loved good music. She had a huge love for animals and took in many strays along the way. Her greatest animal love was for her China WooWoo Wolfie, a Cairn Terrier and Shelley, a Schnauzer. They were the loves of her life and were spoiled beyond belief. She took them everywhere she went and was truly heart broken when they passed away before her.

Judy was a kind hearted, beautiful spirit who wanted to change the world. She embraced the world and everything she took on, whether it be her chicken farming adventure, snake wrangling, gardening or her love for holiday decorating. She was highly fashionable and could be seen at any of the local dance spots or out shopping. She was lovable and trustworthy and never judged anyone. When you were one of her friends, you truly felt the most unconditional love flow from her soul. Her bright free spirited smile and soul will live on in all who was blessed to know her and she will be greatly missed. She has left us behind to take on this crazy world and she has gone on, cosmos mariner, to prepare a warm place for us to join her.

Besides her many friends and confidantes, she leaves behind her baby boy, the love of her life, Toby Ray Dixon, his wife Kelly and their precious baby girl, Dottie; her beautiful daughter, Monika Dixon and her children, Brittany and Jordan, the one she cherished; she also leaves behind great-grandchildren that will be taught the beauty and legacy that she leaves behind by their mommy and grandma; she leaves a very special uncle, Cloyd Bocock, that she was very fond of along with numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and an abundance of friends, too many to list and three very special cats, most importantly her rescue kitty, Bella, all to cherish her memory.

Per her wishes, Judy has been cremated. She will finally return out West, where she has longed to be for many years, when her son returns home.

You are free, War Pony! Fly high sweet spirit. Her family is planning a private celebration to commemorate a wonderful life well lived at a later date.

The Dixon family is in the care of A. Vest & Sons Funeral Home, White Gate, avestandsons.com
