Tipp City Herald

April 6, 1933 

DIXON, OTELIA V. - Otelia Virginia Junkins, the oldest daughter of John and Mary Junkins, was born in Minerva county, W. Va., July 24, 1859 and passed away at the home of her son J. C. Dixon, Vandalia, Ohio, March 10, 1933.  On November 27, 1884 she was united in marriage to Edward Dixon who with four children, Mrs. C. T. Boone, Tippecanoe City, Ohio, Albert O. Dixon, Springfield, Ohio, J. C. Dixon, Vandalia, Ohio, Mrs. R. M. Grimm, Dayton, Ohio, survive her.  She also leaves two sisters, one brother, two half-sisters and three half-brothers.  When a girl of sixteen Mother united with the Methodist church, and though for many years she has been unable to attend services, she derived much pleasure from her Bible and Sunday School literature.  In 1902 the family came to Forgy, Ohio.  Twelve years ago Mother and Father moved to Tippecanoe City, where they resided until a year ago when they went to make their home with their son.  In looking through Mother's papers, these lines were found:


                                Deep in every heart there burns a tiny flame,                   

                                That glows with added brilliancy at the mention of a name.

                                Its tiny beam makes light the path of weary feet that roam,

                                    And brightens every winding lane that leads us back to home.
