OBIT LavonNixon

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.
