Dorothea (Dix) Grow, 97, of Wolf Point and Billings, MT passed peacefully on April 24, 2019, with loving family by her side. Her family grieves the loss of their amazing matriarch. She leaves behind a legacy of love, strength, faith and family. Dot was known for expressing her gratitude for her beautiful family and caregivers.
Dot was born July 24, 1921, to John and Nora (Riedel) Dix in Rock Township, Wisconsin. She grew up with three brothers and a sister on a dairy farm, attended country schools, and graduated from Marshfield High School. Later while attending Wisconsin Rapids Teacher College, she met and fell in love with Bob Grow. They married May 22, 1942 and raised 5 children. They were happily married for 65 years.
Bob and Dot’s lives revolved around their family, friends, community, and church. Dot taught school in Wisconsin, Lewistown and Wolf Point. She retired in 1987 after a remarkable 26 year career instructing and molding hundreds of students and continued as a substitute teacher for many years following retirement. She loved all children and treated many neighborhood children as her own, stating “there is always room for one more.” Dot was committed to life- long learning and enthusiastically tried new endeavors throughout her entire life.
Dot enjoyed playing golf, playing cards, bingo, crochet and watching the Seattle Mariners. Bob and Dot enjoyed camping, hunting, and traveling together.
Dot was preceded in death by her parents, siblings, husband, Bob, and son, Richard. Survivors include: Son, Bob (Sharon) Grow of Broomfield, Colorado; Daughters, Karilynn (Bill) Volk of Billings; Patti (Ed) Kroger of Worden; Janet (Doug) Novak of Glendive; and daughter-in-law, Genell Grow of Rainier, Oregon. Also missing their Gma are 15 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandchild.
Dot led a full and rich life and we rejoice that her spirit lives on in the world through those whose lives she touched and influenced. May you rest in peace.
A memorial service will be held 2 p.m. Friday, May 10 at Smith’s West Chapel, 304 34th St. West in Billings, MT.

Mrs. Grow was my 5th grade teacher in Lewistown. I have wonderful memories of being in her class! I have no doubt that she was an influence on my decision to become a teacher. I retired last year after 31 years of teaching. I only hope I made a difference in the lives of my students the way she did in mine.
