Stacy Dixon, public relations executive, dies at 59

As a way to relax from the business she founded and ran with her husband, Stacy Dixon headed to the Beverly Hills Tennis Club, where she acknowledged she enjoyed the outfits and socializing on ladies nights a little more than her court time as an "OK" doubles player.

Stacy Verne Dixon, 59, a public relations executive and the daughter-in-law of late U.S. Sen. Alan J. Dixon, died of colon cancer Sunday at her home.

It was as a student in a communications class at Eastern Illinois University where she met her future husband, Jeffrey, in 1978. The two were married a year later.

After graduation, she began her career in public relations, including 15 years working for AT&T. In 1994, she launched her own firm and, three years later, she was joined by her husband in Dixon and Co..

The arrangement allowed the couple to work side by side and let them work out of their home as well as to raise their two daughters.

Though the couple moved to the South Loop in 2011, Stacy Dixon remained devoted to the Beverly neighborhood where they previously lived and stayed close to her former neighbors, many of whom assisted her during her four-year battle with cancer, her husband said.

An avid reader, Stacy Dixon also was a member of the Beverly Bookinistas and the South Loop Book Club. She enjoyed her retreat from the city, a three-story home she and her husband built in 2004 in Michigan City, Ind. The couple dubbed the home, which was painted lilac, "Purple Haze."

Newsmakers and celebrities with Chicago ties who died in 2017.

She is survived by her husband, daughters Jessica Suzanne Heitman and Whitney Elizabeth Buha; a sister, Suzanne Boyle; a brother, Scott Allers; and a granddaughter.

Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. June 3, at Donnellan Funeral Home, 10525 S. Western Ave., Chicago. A memorial service will be at 11 a.m. June 4 at Ridge Country Club, 10522 S. California Ave., Chicago.
