Dixie Stevens transitioned to her heavenly home Tuesday, July 26, 2022, at Pikeville Medical Center. Dixie was born December 30, 1921, a daughter of the late Jake and Lula “Wolford” Hurley of Phelps, Ky. In addition to her parents, Dixie was preceded in death by her husband, Hubert Stevens; two daughters, Bertha “Birdie” Irick, and Cheryl Kay Stevens; one sister, Tennessee Farley; and three brothers, Estel, Chester, and Don Hurley.
Dixie was a lifelong resident of Phelps, Ky. She enjoyed celebrating her 100th birthday with family and friends this past December. She was the prime example of a godly woman and the most beautiful soul you could ever meet. She loved the Lord and was a member of Phelps Freewill Baptist Church. Her family was her pride and joy. Dixie enjoyed cooking, especially pies. She loved to sew. Working hard around her house, she always had beautiful flowers growing and was an avid weed puller. Dixie was a pillar of her community, and she will be sadly missed by all who knew and adored her.
