Dixie Mae Huber was born on August 3, 1961 in Valentine, NE to Alvin and Mary Jane (Shouldis) Huber. Dixie grew up on the family farm in rural Parmelee and attended school through 8th grade at Prairie View School between Norris and Parmalee. Dixie attended White River High School. She then attended the National College of Business in Rapid City. Dixie worked various jobs until her return to Norris in 1981.

Dixie was blessed with three amazing children that were the center of her life until her grandchildren were born. Summer Rose was born in 1982; Eric Lee in 1985; and Shawna Lynn in 1988. She lived in Rapid City with her three children where she met the love of her life, Gary Butler, in 1990. For the next 30 years they shared excitement and adventure. Dixie returned to Norris in 1997.

Many people were blessed by Dixie’s service to the public in the Norris, Kadoka and Murdo areas. She was employed and managed Discount Fuel for numerous years. She moved to Murdo to manage the grocery store and then returned to Kadoka where she managed Subway and Sunset Grill until her passing.

Dixie loved to camp with her children and grandchildren. She made a yearly ritual of camping at Farm Island where she put up with raccoons digging in her coolers to a tornado powering over the campground. It didn’t matter as long as she was with her grandchildren. She also took her family to various “water holes” around Kadoka to enjoy spending time and making memories with her children and grandchildren. She drove miles to watch her grandchildren play in sporting events and spend time with them, if only for a day.


When Dixie wasn’t working 12 – 14-hour days or spending time with her grandchildren, she enjoyed playing cards, riding motorcycle, and playing pool. She was on the pool league for nearly 15 years and made the end of the year pool tournament a must. Dixie rarely missed going to Wheel Jam in Huron and the car races. She also attended auctions and rummage sales when the opportunity presented itself.

Dixie was well known in the communities she lived in because she was an outgoing, kind, and warm-hearted lady. No matter how busy Dixie was or how much time she didn’t have, she would take a special minute or 10 out of her day to say “Hello”. Many people from friends to sales representatives stopped in Kadoka to visit with Dixie while passing by. Dixie was helpful, especially to those in need. She tried her best to do what she could to bring a smile to people’s faces.

Blessed with sharing her life is her true love and companion of 30 years, Gary “Bud” Butler. Dixie’s family members who will forever love and miss her are her three children Summer Quick Bear, Eric (Carlie) Quick Bear and Shawna (Cordareau) Henderson, Mother, Mary Jane (Kenny) Lolley, sister Debra Willert, half-sister Maggie (Christian) McGhee, half-brother Nathan (Reeta) Huber, step-sisters Laurie (Larry) MacZiewski, Gina (Bret) Strain, step-brothers David (Carrie) Lolley, and Paul Lolley. Dixie’s pride and joy, her grandchildren, Jaden, Connor, Revvin, Kaden, RaeLee, Keaton, Haisley, JaiShawn, Kato, Kyrie, Jacoby, Adarah, Landon and Kimi, her special niece Helena (Will) Kleynhans, her Uncle Pete (Diane), a host of cousins, family members and friends.

Dixie was preceded in death by her loving dad Alvin Huber, best uncle ever - Herbert Huber (Boo-Boo) grandson Bryken, and special friend Robert Briggs.

Arrangements are with Rush Funeral Home of Kadoka.
