Dixie Faye (Garner) Bass of Little Rock, Arkansas, entered the Kingdom of Heaven on March 31, 2023. She was born at home April 30, 1941, near Rayville, Louisiana, the 2nd of 5 children born to Fred Edward and Ola (Viola) Garner. Dixie fell completely in love and married Al Bass in 1958 and moved with him to Montana. After the birth of their third child, Al and Dixie relocated to Little Rock. Dixie held several jobs after her children started school but enjoyed her years as a reservationist with Southwest Airlines the most. Dixie was an avid reader, and her cooking and baking efforts were legendary in the family. Dixie spent time as a member for many years in the German-American Club.

Dixie was the foundation of our family and the glue that held us all together. The angel who covered us in love, always. She gave all of us her time and energy in abundant amounts. She held all the babies and cooked for all the families dealing with illness. She was the safe place to land for the grandchildren and great-grandchildren who needed a break while growing up. She loved having a house full of family, especially on holidays. She loved watching her legacy grow with the addition of in-laws and 'bonus family'. She adored her Louisiana and Texas family and was quick to get in the car and visit when the opportunity presented itself. She knew every name and how every person fit on the family tree. Her tolerance and acceptance of all of us came from her DNA.

Dixie is preceded in death by her husband; her parents; her grandchildren, Kyle and Vinnie; and her older sister, Careen Johnston. She is survived by children, Keith Bass, Lisa Bass Kincaid and husband Michael of Alexander, Laura Bass Henderson of Little Rock and bonus daughter Maria Francis of Little Rock. Her legacy includes grandchildren, Chris Henderson and wife Brandi, Dustin Henderson, Morgan Johnson, and Shay Williams (Marvin) as well as bonus grandchildren, Christianna Braddix (husband Spencer) and Engelica Francis (James) of North Little Rock. She leaves siblings, Gary Garner (wife Pat) and Bobby Garner (wife Pat) of Louisiana and Cathy Pringle (husband Herb) of Texas, and 14 great grandchildren.

Pallbearers will be Keith Bass, Chris Henderson, Joey Swaggart, Caleb Poole, Parker Bass and Matthew Garner. Honorary pallbearers are Gary Garner, Bobby Garner, Mark Bass and Steve Bass.
