Edith Robb Dixon served on Cabrini's Board of Trustees in several capacities, including chair, since 1973. In 1999, she was voted Trustee Emerita by the College's Board.
Her service and generosity to the College are extensive. She and her late husband, F. Eugene (Fitz) Dixon Jr., donated funds for the Widener Center, the tennis courts, and were major contributors to the Dixon Center.
The challenge grant for the artificial playing surface on the Edith Robb Dixon Field generated support from throughout the Cabrini Community. The field was dedicated October 7, 2006.
In addition to her service to Cabrini, Dixon is active in civic and educational roles, having served on the Women's Board of Abington Memorial Hospital; as chair of the Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Committee at Temple University; the Board of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, director emeritus of the Philadelphia Zoological Society, and honorary trustee of the Maine Coast Memorial Hospital and The Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach, Fla. She is on the board of trustees at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
She has two children; her daughter, Ellin, is a Cabrini alumna.
Dixon holds honorary doctorates from Cabrini College (1980) and
Widener University, and when she finds time to unwind, she enjoys golf,
boating, cooking, and needlepoint.
