Dixie Lee Blamires (September 22, 1944- March 17, 2021)

Dixie Lee Blamires earned her angel wings on March 17, 2021. Dixie was born to Lois and Shirley Williams in Wendell, Idaho on September 22, 1944. She was the only daughter of four children. The family moved to Ponderosa, California, where Dixie attended grade school. She spoke about loving to ride the school bus, and her childhood dream job was to be a hairdresser. The family moved back to Twin Falls, Idaho, and Dixie graduated from Twin Falls High School in 1962. While in high school, she was an avid member of the pep and ski club.

Dixie was always a hard worker; she car hopped at a root beer stand and washed dishes at the hospital while in high school. She worked as a nursing aide with the Catholic Sisters in Jerome, Idaho. Dixie wrote to them for 35 years afterward and maintained a strong friendship. She had a passion for working with people and found her career calling as a physical therapy assistant. Dixie worked with her dear friend Dr. Dean Mayes for over 50 years. During that time, she touched countless lives in the Jerome community. Her compassion and sympathy for others made such a difference in the lives of her patients.

She had four daughters: Kristi Lynn, Sandi Dawn, Shelley Lee, and Terisha Michelle. Dixie adored her daughters, and she shared a special bond with Shelley and Terisha. She thought of her children as not only her kids but as her friends. She often spoke about what special people that her children were and how much sunshine they brought to her life. Dixie held a long-standing friendship with Sammy McKimm whom she thought of as a sister. She treasured their relationship and spoke highly of her.

In her adult years, Dixie had a small hobby farm and had a passion for miniature donkeys. She loved her property in Jerome and found such peace there. Dixie would often brag about having never gotten a speeding ticket and would tell all who would listen about her driving accomplishments. She had eclectic musical taste ranging from Ave Maria by Franz Schubert, to The Righteous Brothers and even Lizzo. She had a unique sense of style and was known for her fashionable purses and pearl earrings. She was a lover of pearls and peach lace. She enjoyed thrift stores, watching golf on tv, and she loved to be fancy on a budget. She was an avid card writer and loved to commemorate every occasion with a note. She loved eating good food, telling great stories, and dropping an inappropriate curse word into an everyday conversation.

Dixie experienced hardships in her life but overcame them with perseverance and faith.
Dixie was a believer in God and often spoke about her faith in the angels and God’s will. She was particularly close with her father, Shirley Williams, and often looked to him as an example in her life. She believed in treating others with kindness and keeping God in her heart. Dixie will be remembered as a kind and generous woman who put others before herself. She contributed to charity throughout her life and had a fondness for the Mustard Seed organization in Twin Falls.

Dixie was preceded in death by her parents, Lois and Shirley Williams, her brothers, Don, Doug, and Dennis, her daughters, Kristi Lynn, Sandi Dawn, and Shelley Romero. She is survived by her daughter Terisha Michelle; her grandchildren Brennah Bell (Jacquelyn), Jaury Staton (Philip), Louie Jeff (Reilly Jones), Adam Birch, AJ Miller, Kaden Williams, and Ellie Romero; and her great-grandchildren Addison, Daniel, and Monroe.

Dixie’s proudest accomplishment was her family. She was devoted to them and loved them above all else. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She will forever be our sunshine, and we hope she has found peace with the angels.

A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 27, 2021 at Sunset Memorial Park, 2296 Kimberly Road in Twin Falls. There will be a Celebration of Life and reception following the graveside service at the Twin Falls Senior Center 530 Shoshone St. South. Condolences may be left by visiting

I remember the times we went to the craft shows at the college Dixie and Terisha and Donna and Terisha’s daughters would meet us there. Then on my birthday one year Dixie and Terisha surprised me and took me to Idaho Joe’s for breakfast! We enjoyed ourselves. Dixie was a beautiful person full of Love ❤️Rest in Peace Dixie! I’m going to miss you! See you in Heaven!
