Girl killed in Pilger tornadoes laid to rest

The 5-year-old girl who died when tornadoes struck the northeast Nebraska town of Pilger has been laid to rest. Calista "Cali" Dixon's funeral was held Saturday in Stanton. Dixon's grandmother, Kay Labenz, says about 150 people attended the funeral, including the girl's father, Elijah Dixon, of Madison, Alabama. Dixon's mother, Kandi Murphree, remains hospitalized in Omaha. Labenz says Murphree's condition is improving and she's no longer in a medically induced coma. Dixon was one of two people killed when the storms caused significant damage to most of Pilger on June 16. Labenz says she believes Murphee was fleeing her mobile home with her two daughters when the storm hit. Four-year-old Robin Dixon wasn't seriously hurt.
