In Loving Memory of Reva Mae Dixon

Reva Mae Dixon, a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away on November 24, 2023, at The OSU Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio. Born on July 5, 1931, in Springfield, Reva was a cherished member of her community and leaves behind a legacy that will never be forgotten.

Reva was the daughter of Roosevelt and Louise Cockran and grew up alongside her brother Elton Cockran. She was a proud graduate of Springfield South High School, where she cultivated the knowledge and wisdom that would shape her throughout her life. Reva’s worked as a dedicated housekeeper for Olan Mills. Her commitment and passion for her work left a lasting impression on her colleagues and the countless families who passed through the doors of the photo studio.

When she wasn’t working, Reva found solace in her hobbies. A lover of literature, she could often be found with her nose buried in a book, indulging in stories that transported her to other worlds. Additionally, she possessed a green thumb that flourished as beautifully as the flowers she tended to in her garden. The simplicity and beauty of nature always brought her joy and peace.

She was a member of Fair Street Christian Church in Springfield.

Family was the cornerstone of Reva’s life, and she treasured every moment spent with her loved ones. She was survived by her son William Dixon, granddaughter Danna Curtis, grandson William (Renee) Castleberry, great-grandson William McClain, granddaughters Genesis Castleberry, and great-granddaughter Willow Castleberry. Their love, laughter, and memories will forever hold a special place in her heart.

Reva Mae Dixon’s spirit will forever live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. Her warmth, generosity, and unwavering love will continue to inspire and guide us as we navigate life without her physical presence. May she rest in eternal peace knowing that she made a profound impact on all of our lives.

  1. Billy,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Sis. Dixon was a very important part of my upbringing at Gospel Tabernacle Church of God In Christ. She and my mom, Sis. Corene Hookfin, were great friends. Having her in service brought back many memories of old times at the church. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you needs us. Love.

    Reva Dixon was a happy go lucky person. We went to Fair Street Christian Church together. Our parents were Robert and Margaret Echols. Sis Reva loved the lemon pies. She will definitely be cherished. Love to the family.
