My mom is the most courageous, talented, creative person I’ve ever known.  She left this life to join our Lord and many loved ones in eternal joy, on July 27th, 2020, after a 10 year battle with Alzheimer’s.

She was born Dixie Diane Harris on July 16, 1937, in Corcoran, California, and married Robert Edward Rosprim in June 1958.  They were so well suited and so in love.  They were married 54 1/2 years before dad went to Jesus.

She was a gifted school teacher, wonderful mother and wife, expert watercolorist, crafter, quilter, seamstress, small plane pilot, golfer.  She was a ray of sunshine to everyone.

With her in heaven are my dad Robert, parents (Daisy and Zell), and 3 siblings (Celia-Faye, Peggy and Fred).

She is survived by myself, Tracy Chard (Gilbert), daughter Shelley Wolfe (Michael Harby), and my 4 children: Shasta Hopkin (Andy), Summer Smith (Nate Dipola), Bobby Bell, and Sonnet Bell.  She is also survived by her first great-granddaughter, Scarlette Ember, due in November to Shasta and Andy.  Also, by siblings Joyce Bartlett (Vern), June Warren, Shirley Sweeney (Pete), Eddie Harris (Barbara), Lyn Harris, and many nieces/nephews, and great nieces/nephews.
