Dixie Meeks
March 2, 1963 - July 5, 2017





Dixie Meeks peacefully went with the angels to heaven on July 5th, 2017 at Sanford Hospice in Sioux Falls, SD, as a result of an accidental fall, with loving family by her side. She was 54 years old.

Dixie Leigh (Yeager) Meeks was born March 2nd, 1963 in Sioux Falls, SD and lovingly welcomed into the Don and Betty Yeager family on March 15th, 1963. She graduated from Lincoln High School in 1981. Following high school, she attended National American University in Rapid City to become a veterinary technician. After graduating, she had an internship with Animal Control in Sioux City, worked with large animals in Luverne, MN, and lived out her passion for caring for animals at Animal Medical Clinic in Sioux Falls for Dr. Brost for approximately 20 years.

On July 21st, 1990, Dixie was united in marriage with Bruce Wieskus in Sioux Falls, SD. Residing in Garretson, SD, the couple became loving parents to their daughter Kayla. Dixie resided in Garretson for 19 years and then moved back to the Sioux Falls area. Dixie then met her current husband and best friend Bill Meeks. They were united in marriage on March 23rd, 2013. Together they purchased a home in Sioux Falls where they happily lived with their two dogs, Mopsie and Trinket, and two birds.

Dixie grew up attending Hilltop Methodist Church, attended United Church of Garretson while living in Garretson and returned to Hilltop when she moved back to her home town. Dixie loved volunteering at the Banquet. She went on mission trips to Rosebud and Guatemala and had recently started volunteering at Destiny Youth Ranch with kids and horses in Alvord, IA. Dixie loved God, and helping others. Her open kindness and happy nature were evident to all who knew her.

Dixie had a passion for caring for all animals, and was especially fond of horses. She loved to horseback ride whenever she had the chance. She also had a couple horses of her own during her lifetime, Sailor and Diamond. Other things Dixie enjoyed were visiting and making new friends, fishing, and going to concerts with Bill. She especially loved attending JazzFest in Sioux Falls every summer. If there was an outdoor event with food, music and people, you can bet Dixie was there.

Grateful for having shared her life are her husband Bill Meeks, Sioux Falls, SD; daughter Kayla (Austin) Mann, Hartington, NE; brother Dar (Deb) Yeager, Sioux Falls, SD; parents Don and Betty Yeager, Sioux Falls, SD; and special cousins Doug Chapman, Sioux Falls, SD, and Beth Chapman, Arlington, VA.
