The EMS Community mourns the death of First Responder Dixie Steckelberg,
60, of Lovilia, Iowa.

Dixie died of an apparent heart attack at the scene of a motor vehicle
crash about 8:00 AM on Thursday, December 18. She had completed her
shift as a dispatcher for Monroe County Sheriff's Department and
responded to the crash scene as a member of the Lovilia First
Responders.


This happened just a few miles from me. She was one of the dispatchers for my volly department and the dispatcher of my PT gig. She will be missed. Please keep Dixie and her family in your thoughts and prayers this holiday season.
