Alice Corbin Dix

Alice Corbin Dix, 76, of Crisfield, Maryland, was born on January 11, 1937 in Princess Anne, Maryland to the late Wesley Waters and Rintha Corbin.  Alice’s stepfather was Elton Corbin.

She received her formal education in the Somerset County Public School System and was inducted into the National Honor Society in the 11th grade.  Alice met and married Albert Charles Dix, Sr. of Crisfield, Maryland who preceded her in death. 

After relocating to Crisfield, Alice remained a faithful member of Samuel Wesley United Methodist Church even though she was ill in later years.  She was affectionately called, “Grand Mom” or “Aunt Alice” by relatives and friends alike.  Alice was famous for her dry sense of humor and always kept a “stiff upper lip.”  You  never saw her break under pressure.  She was a no nonsense person who believed in standing strong and never letting anyone pull you down.  A true “Charlotte Breed” trait.

On Wednesday, July 10, 2013, the Lord called Alice home after several medical experiences.  Her transition to Glory was made with her daughter, granddaughter, niece, great-niece, great-great niece, nephew and sisters.

Her love is left to one daughter,  Wendy M. Presley (Walter); one granddaughter Tracy Frager (William); three great grandchildren, Monteiz Frager and Zion Frager, who preceded her in death and Willow Frager; a very special niece, Deborah Corbin; one great niece, Latasha R. Jones; one great-great niece, Kyliah Sterling; one great-great nephew, Jordan Sterling; nine sisters, Frances Smith of Salisbury, Maryland, Charlotte Harmon of Princess Anne, Mildred Corbin (Deceased), Elsie Smith (Deceased), Alma Waters of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Goldie Corbin-Pailen (Deceased), Brenda Corbin (Deceased), Diane Wright of Salisbury, Maryland; six brothers, Wesley Waters, Jr. of Haverford, Pennsylvania, Richard Waters, (Deceased), Wayne Waters (Deceased), Elton Corbin, Jr. of Peekskill, New York, Jimmy Dutton of Salisbury, Donald Corbin of Salisbury; seven stepchildren, Albert C. Dix, Jr.  (Deceased), Kirk Jackson, Lenora Jackson, Gregory Dix, Robert Dix, Reginald Jackson and Emily Dix; a host of cousins, other nieces, nephews and extended family and friends. 

A funeral service will be held 11 a.m., Saturday, July 20, 2013  at Samuel Wesley United Methodist Church in Manokin, Maryland where friends may call one hour prior. Reverend Alexinia Seldon will be the Eulogist   Friends may also call 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Friday, July 19, 2013 at the church.  Interment will be in the church cemetery.

  • Mrs.C:

    May the family please accept my deepest sympathy. Please comfort one another through the sharing of memories and cherishing your love you hold dear. Many people find a sure hope in God’s Word. He promises us that through his Son, the dead will indeed live again. JOHN 5:25 states it this way “The hour is coming and it is now, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who have given heed will live.” We also see that the promise is extended in PSALMS 37:29 which reads” The righteous themselves will posses the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” Just a little while longer and these promises will come true. Seek comfort and truth and have a real lasting hope. “The Only Remedy”

  • Aunt Alice you will be greatly missed, especially our converations on the phone. You always were encouraging and loving. You could always make me laugh. You have been a dedicated Aunt and friend, never giving up on me. Give Mom a kiss and enjoy your deserved rest.

    My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. I was saddened to hear about your Mom’s death. I know exactly what you are going through at this time because I just lost my Mom 2 years ago on February 4, 2011. I just want to encourage you that even though it is hard right now, it will get better. The good memories will get you through the rough times. Weeping may endure for a night but Joy does come!!! I am sorry that I can not make the service, me and my husband who is the Pastor of our church in Cambridge have a wedding to do today. Be blessed and know that God cares and He will comfort and keep you.
