Because of the family’s concern for public health and safety during this COVID-19 pandemic, the family requests that social distancing and other safety precautions be followed. The wearing of face masks is strongly encouraged.
The only daughter born to the late Julia Will Rhodes Dixon and the late William Leon Dixon, Clara grew up on a farm in Avera. As a child Clara enjoyed her horses, particularly “Patsy”. She was 1955 graduate of Wrens High School where she was a lettered, star basketball player occupying the guard position. She then attended Barrett School of Nursing, graduating in 1958. Clara met her first husband, PJ Spellings, while working as a nurse at Procter and Gamble in Augusta. It was with PJ that she adopted her daughter, Kymber. She later married James S. Weathers, 1stSGT/USMC. They travelled extensively and devoted her time to supporting veterans as a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW. In her career, she spent 30 years at Doctors Hospital during which time she held the positions of Head Nurse in Dialysis and, her most loved position, Assistant Supervisor of the Operating Room. Through her life, Clara enjoyed acrobatic waterskiing, gardening and canning, crossword puzzles, trivia and was a voracious reader. In her later years, she enjoyed traveling--many visits to Los Angeles to visit her daughter, and to Jamaica with her sister-in-law, Ann Beasley. Clara was extremely smart and driven to do things her way.
Those left to cherish her memory include her daughter, Kymber Blake Froschauer (Scott) of Los Angeles CA; brother, Terrell Dixon (Ann) of Eatonton; and aunt, Betty Calhoun of Wadley.
Serving as pallbearers will be Chris Calhoun, Ben Cooper, Britt Cooper, Bryan Cooper, Scott Froschauer and Jimmy Miller.
Memorials in her name may be made to Augusta Warrior Project, 701 Greene Street, Augusta GA 30901.
The family will receive friends from 1:00 – 2:00 P.M. at James Funeral Home prior to the services Sunday afternoon, November 1, 2020.
