Obituary

Dixie Lee Engman, a longtime resident of Dutch Harbor, Alaska, passed away on Wednesday, January 4, 2023, in Libby, Montana. She was 67 years old.

Dixie was born June 14,1955, to Jesse and Marvel (Jacobson) Jones in Shelby, Montana.  She attended high school in Shelby, and then started her adventures in life.  During her time, she fell in love; she raised and loved two daughters; made numerous lifelong friendships; and found her passions in life.  Dixie was an excellent seamstress, crafter, and she was highly creative.  Dixie was generous, giving, and always looking to help. Dixie had a sharp mind, and spent many years as a bookkeeper.  She was a wizard with finances and numbers.  Although she spent her last few months in Montana, she fell in love with the bays in Dutch Harbor, AK and all the beauty and life within its waters. Dixie loved the ocean, and it brought her so much joy and peace.

Dixie is survived by her husband, Steve Engman, of Dutch Harbor, Alaska; daughter, Jennifer Lindquist of Lakeway, Texas; and granddaughters, Kaitlin Tabaracci, Mackenzie and Josefine Lindquist; daughter and son-in-law Natalie and Jason Ten Eyck of Kalispell, Montana; and granddaughter Piper Ten Eyck; stepson Scott Engman; stepdaughter Teia Engman of Twin Falls, Idaho; and stepdaughter Tasha Engman and grandson Damen Shepherd of Clatskanie, Oregon. Recognition is also needed for sister in law Cindy Jones, of Libby, Montana for her stewardship in Dixie’s last days.

She was preceded in death by her father, Jesse Elmer Jones; mother and stepfather, Marvel Marie Majerus and Harold Clarence Majerus; sister, Della Mae Cramton; brothers, Jesse Lynn Jones and James Lyle Jones; and grandson, Kyle Patterson.

A memorial service to celebrate the life of Dixie will be held in late June 2023.  Details on the service will be coordinated by her daughters and provided in the spring. Arrangements are under the care of Schnackenberg Funeral Home of Libby. Online condolences and memories may be shared by visiting www.schnackenbergfh.com.
