Dixie Marjean Cummings

Sept. 25, 1937 - Feb. 2, 2023

Dixie Marjean Cummings nee Presnall, 85, of Greybull, went to her eternal home on Thursday, Feb.  2, 2023 at Three Rivers Health in Basin. 

She was born in the little mining town of Gebo, Wyo., on Sept. 25, 1937, to Dick and Lucy Presnall. Her sister, Sharon Lynn, was born in Baker, Mont., in 1939. The family lived in various towns in Montana and Wyoming before moving to Greybull in December of 1945. 

Dixie attended school in Greybull and graduated in 1955 as salutatorian. She attended Central Business College. She married Jim Cummings in October of 1956. Their son, Timothy Cummings, was born the following year. Dixie worked for Big Horn Federal for 35 years, retiring in 2006. She and Jim had lived in their home on Greybull Heights since 1963.

She played piano for years at her church, Grace Southern Baptist, the senior center and many other events. She went on multiple cruises and tours around the country. She loved meeting new people during these trips. Locally, you would find her at parties, events, and doings around town and she never sat alone. She enjoyed having lunch at the senior center where she would be able to see many of her friends. After her retirement from the bank, she worked at the thrift store, Community Outreach, which combined her love of thrifting and yard-saling and getting to chat with the community. She loved Elvis Presley and had an impressive collection of Elvis-related things. Above all else, she loved and trusted Jesus.

She was predeceased by her parents, husband, sister and son. She is survived by her brother-in-law, Tom, daughter-in-law, Melana, two granddaughters, two nephews, one niece and two great-grandchildren. 

Services for Dixie are being planned, but no date is set yet. There will be an announcement when one is set so everyone whose lives were touched by Dixie’s vivacious presence can celebrate her life.
