Dixie L. Geihsler

Nov. 20, 1952 - July 31, 2012

INDIANOLA, Nebraska -- Dixie Geihsler, 59, of Indianola, Nebraska, passed away peacefully at her home on Monday, July 31, 2012.

Dixie was born on Nov. 20, 1952, to Charley and Marlys (Nitsch) Brown at Imperial, Nebraska. She went to high school at Sun Valley California and graduated in 1971. She moved to Nebraska in 1975 with son, Scott Henrickson and later came the birth of a daughter, Brenda Lee. She worked at TRW and Parker Hannifin.

On Aug. 1, 2005, she married Eugene Geihsler. They were very happy and enjoyed their time at home. It was some of the best years of her life being a devoted wife.

Spending time with her children, grandchildren, husband and family were the happiest times. Dixie adored all her grandchildren and we would often find her playing with a squirt gun, running through a sprinkler, chasing toads or fishing, just to name a few, to keep them or her entertained!

Dixie will be especially remembered by her quick sarcastic sense of humor and positive outlook and being Huskers No. 1 fan.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Charley and Marlys Brown; niece, Kimberlee Brenning and one grand-dog, Sidney.
