Jean Hixson, our loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away at the home of her daughter on July 3, 2006, in Kamas, Utah.
She was born Nov. 19, 1918 in Salt Lake City to Dennis D. and Coral A. Ausherman. She married Lewis Rigby Hixson on Oct. 20, 1939. They were married for 51 years. They resided in Park City, where they raised their three children.
Jean graduated from Granite High School and also attended Stevens Henager College, where she received her degree in business. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and greatly enjoyed the time spent with her visiting teachers. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her family. Even though she endured many trials in her life, she was not afraid of working hard and gave unselfishly to others. Jean will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
She is survived by her children: Renny (Tama) Hixson, Park City; Stephen (Ginger) Hixson, Park City; and LuJean (Frank) Nuneviller, Kamas; 20 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren; sister Mildred (Dick) Poulton and brother Denny Ausherman, both of Idaho. Jean is preceded in death by her husband Lewis, her parents and her sister Helen Winchester.
We would like to thank our sister LuJean for the tender love and care that she gave to our mother. A special thank you to Charlee, George and Christine from Alliance Hospice for their kindness and exceptional care given to Jean in the last months of her life and to Steve Dobbins for his spiritual guidance and support.
Funeral services will be held Saturday, July 8, 2006, 2 p.m. at the Wasatch Lawn Mortuary Chapel, 3401 South Highland Dr., Salt Lake City, where friends and family may gather from noon to 1:45 p.m. prior to the services. Interment will be in Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park.
