Agnes S. Dix, of Fort Collins, Colorado, died peacefully at home, surrounded by family, on February 27, 2009 after a long battle with liver disease. Agnes was born May 3, 1928, in Washington, DC. She grew up in Washington, and graduated from Holy Cross Academy there. In 1950, Agnes earned a BA in Art at The Catholic University of America in Washington, where she met her future husband, Ralph Leo Dix, when a friend asked Agnes to tutor a science major struggling with French. They were married in 1951 and moved to Madison, Wisconsin where Ralph pursued graduate work in botany and Agnes did design and display work for area department stores. Agnes’s career reflected her interest in art and education, but she was, first and foremost, an artist. She was a lifelong ceramicist, print maker and painter. Her friends and family long cherished her annual handmade Christmas cards, complete with a personal note. When Ralph’s academic career took the Dixes to Marquette University, Agnes taught high school art in Milwaukee,
