With a heavy heart and great sorrow it is announced that Dixie Lee Sharon Skolnicki (nee Schoettle) left this world on August 31st 2021 to go to a better place and meet up with her friends and family who have gone before her. Dixie was a wonderful mother, wife, and sister to all who were lucky enough to call her family. She loved to travel the world with anyone who would join her on the adventure.
Always a strong and stubborn Schoettle, Dixie could accomplish anything that she set her mind to. She was a force to be reckoned with and rarely took no for an answer. She taught everyone to use their heart to the fullest and cherish each day. Dixie touched many lives through bookkeeping and providing loving care for numerous children over her 25 years of volunteer services. Not only did Dixie volunteer her time with children, but also the American Legion Auxiliary and Crozer Chester Hospital. Her favorite hobbies included spending time with her grandchildren, shopping, and bowling.
Dixie is predeceased by Robert Vandetty, the father of her children and second husband John Skolnicki. She is survived by daughter Kimberly Thomas (Peter); son Robert Vandetty; grandchildren Peter Thomas (Daron), Nicholas Thomas (Christine); siblings William Schoettle (Judy), Richard Schoettle (Mickie), Robert Schoettle (Suzanne), Dorothy Ford; many nieces, nephews and friends.
Relatives and friends are invited to her memorial service on Tuesday, Sept 7th at 12 noon in the Logan-Videon Funeral Home, Sproul Rd., Broomall, PA 19008, where friends may call after 10:30 AM
Memorials may be sent in her name to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105
