Our loving mother, Lavon Nixon, aged 92, passed away peacefully Saturday March 15, 2014. She grew up in Moore, Idaho during the great economic depression and worked hard as a child to help support the family. She lived many years in Palo Alto and Los Altos Hills where she raised four children.
She is survived by her sister Peggy Sollender; children Sherry Hunt, Allen, Dennis and Michael Nixon; 8 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. She survived polio in 1949 but never let it keep her from being independent.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the March of Dimes. A memorial service will be held at fellowship hall at The Terraces of Los Altos, 373 Pine Lane, Los Altos on Saturday, April 5th at 3 pm.
