Janette Overton Dixon was a daughter born in Palestine, Texas, to Lily May Morriss and Andrew Jackson Overton, Jr. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from the University of Texas at Austin and subsequently taught middle school geography and history in that city. Following marriage to Don, her loving husband of 45 years, she moved to San Antonio where she was deeply involved in her church and community. Janette was a Sunday School teacher and involved in women's ministry at Castle Hills First Baptist where she chaired a Women's Concerns Conference that influenced the lives of women throughout the city. She was active for a number of years in Bible Study Fellowship, an international organization committed to concentrated Bible study.
Her community activities included substitute teaching and volunteering at San Antonio Christian Schools where her sons attended. She served as an associate board member for the Baptist Health Systems and volunteered locally on the National Day of Prayer Committee.
Janette was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and Alamo Mission Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. With the latter organization, she served in numerous capacities but felt a great commitment to San Antonio school children as education chair four years. She launched a project for creating and publishing an exquisite series bookmarks for local school children. Each bookmark chronicles a life of a founder or hero instrumental in establishing The Republic of Texas. She was also a co-author of the DRT's Long Barrack Museum Book.
