Theresa Geraci Dixon, age 58, passed away on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, from complications
related to chemotherapy treatment with her husband, Howard Evans, and son, Stephen Dixon,
by her side. Her optimism, positive energy, and fighting spirit never wavered as she bravely
assured all who loved her that she was trusting in God’s will and our support.
Theresa’s life story has two chapters – Ohio and Georgia. In both states, she left her mark as a
woman who could take care of herself and others, who could accept hospitality and offer it with
equal generosity, who could achieve success professionally and personally.
She was born on August 19, 1964 to Betty (Brockhoff) and Fred Geraci of Cincinnati. She was
the surprise child who came along eight years after the youngest sibling and she was loved and
protected by her sister Carmie (Rodriguez), and brothers Fred, Mike, and Tim Geraci. She
attended St. Mary’s Elementary School, Purcell Marian High School and charmed all who met
her at the family business on Hyde Park Square. While earning her degree from Xavier
University, she began working full-time at Marketing Research Services, Inc, a job that suited
her personal and professional talents. She welcomed Rod, Gail, Aileen, and Concetta as in-
laws and became the favorite aunt to nieces and nephews. The highlight of her Cincinnati life
was the birth of her son, Stephen Dixon, and she undertook the role of mom with joy and deep
love and dedication.
The move from Ohio to Georgia with Stephen was the beginning of chapter two. She made
friends easily, enjoyed soccer games with Stephen as star, brought her talents and humor to her
work and friends at School Specialty and later Yeoman Technology Group. Of all her friends,
Howard Evans became her best friend, her life partner for years, and finally husband on
February 22, 2022 at 2:22pm. They shared a passion for the Ohio State University and enjoyed
trips to football games in Columbus and the Rose Bowl. She loved watching Stephen grow into
the wonderful young man he has become and was happy knowing that he found his soulmate in
Emily Head.
Howard introduced Theresa to the Northview High School Techno Titan robotics team that he
served as a mentor for 17 years. It did not take long for Theresa become a cheerleader and
advocate for the hundreds of students that would come to know and love her over ten years.
She was happiest planning for team trips to competitions, feeding teen imaginations and
stomachs, providing warmth and discipline. Always an ambassador for the team, she worked
hard to build girls’ interest in STEM and provide opportunities for elementary school students in
the community.
As wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, aunt to over fifty nieces/nephews, Theresa’s focus was
always on others and her loss is felt deeply by those who knew and loved her. A celebration of
her life was held for students, parents, friends on March 31 at the robotics workspace in Johns
Creek, Georgia. A service will be held for her in Cincinnati on Saturday, May 6, at 11:00am at
St. Mary’s Cemetery in St. Bernard with a reception to follow. Donations may be made in her
honor to Northview Techno Titans Robotics Foundation, Inc., PO Box 1658, Duluth GA 30096.
