September 16, 1943 — July 30, 2023

Dixie H. Behrle, 79, of Grand Island, NE died on July 30, 2023 at Tiffany Square surrounded by her loved ones.

A celebration of life will be from 5 to 7 pm on Friday, August 4th at Apfel Funeral Home. Memorials are suggested to the family.

Dixie was born on September 16, 1943 in St. Paul, NE to Clarence and Elsie (Alexander) Baxter. She went to District 30, Walnut, and Grand Island Senior High. Graduating with the Class of 1961.

She worked at the State Capital for the Department of Education, Chamber of Commerce, and for Hornady Manufacturing. She was a hostess at Conoco Café, a cashier at Conoco One-Stop convenience store and was the first friendly face you would see when walked into Anderson Ford in the mornings as well as many various other jobs.

She spent as much time with her nephew Steve, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren as she could. She also enjoyed crocheting and was an avid baker. Her homemade Runzas and rum cake lit up the faces of anyone who had ever tasted them. She loved with all her heart and if you were lucky enough to get to see her feisty side, it didn’t take long to get back in her good graces.

She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church.

She is survived by her son, Fred (Lisa) Behrle; brother, Daryl Baxter; sister, Donita (Joe) Cone; grandchildren, Andrew Behrle, Kaitlyn (Mario) Chavarria, Taren (Brianna) Kosmicki and Tyra La Rosa; great grandchildren, Hopelynn, Makenna, Killian, Makinley, Ayden and Bryxtn.
