Marian Floto - Ronald Reagan In Dixon
Marian Floto is a Dixon native who knew Ronald Reagan and his mother through the local First Christian Church. On Sundays, Nelle Reagan would volunteer at the prison and the state school, taking Marian and other volunteers with her. Marian also has memories of spending time at the Rock River, and riding into town with Ronald Reagan to get ice. During her later years, Marian became part of the first group of volunteers to manage the Reagan Home and give tours to visitors.
