Mrs. Danielle Dixon Flanders was born June 11, 1996, in Tifton to Bronzal Dixon Jr. and Dana Griffin Flanders. She was a friend to all and never met a stranger. She loved telling people about her Lord and Savior, writing songs, and giving her testament to people in music. She also loved birds. Flanders was the strongest and kindest person. She loved her family, her parents, and her bonus parents. She was her mother’s best friend, and she especially loved her husband and son. Flanders had three wishes after being diagnosed with cancer. These were to go to Disney World with family and see her son’s eyes light up; get married so she wouldn’t be in sin; and spend a week with her dad at the beach. All three of these wishes were granted by the grace of God. She was preceded in death by her paternal grandfather, Bronzal Dixon Sr.; maternal grandmother, Mary Carelock; uncle, David Goff; special aunt, Lisa Flanders; and special grandfather, Harvey Flanders.
Survivors include her mother, Dana (Lamar) Flanders of Twin City; father, Bronzal (Rhonda) Dixon Jr. of Tifton; husband, Colton Flanders of Summertown; son, Kayson Jase Dixon of Summertown; maternal grandparents, Tommy and Betty Griffin of Tifton; special grandmother, Mary Grimes of Twin City; paternal grandmother, Sylvia Dixon of Tifton; brother, Andrew Levy Dixon of Twin City; stepbrothers, Matthew Yawn of Mixon, N.Y., and Jacob Yawn of Tifton; and several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
Pallbearers were Matthew Yawn, Jacob Yawn, Josh Anderson, Luke Griffin, Dusty Griffin, Hunter Scarborough, and Reed Bennett.
