Lois Fay Dixon died June 23rd at the age of 90.
She was born Oct. 25, 1926, in Snoqualmie, Washington, to Claude Dewey and Sallie Alma Hurn. She was raised in Centralia, Washington, with her eight sisters and a brother. After graduating from Centralia High, she attended the University of Oregon, becoming a lifelong Ducks fan. Her career with the railroad took her to Tacoma and, while working at the now historical Union Station, she met Thomas V. Dixon Jr. After spending a brief time in Germany while he served in the Army, the couple settled in Seattle. Moving to Enumclaw in 1971, she spent 46 years in the same home that she and her husband cultivated.
She is remembered as a devout Christian. Having a competitive spirit, she enjoyed many sports, but especially loved bowling. Her favorite way to spend time, though, was working in her yard.
She is survived by daughters Cynthia Stayton and Sherry Walstad; her brother; three sisters; eight grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband Tom, grandson Chad Walstad and five sisters.
She was laid to rest July 1 at Evergreen Memorial Park in Enumclaw.
