Margene Pixton

September 12, 1933 — April 13, 2020

Ruth Margene Nielsen Pixton, 86, passed away April 13, 2020 in Alpine, Utah.  She was born September 12, 1933 in Riverton, Utah to Niels Jensen Nielsen and Evelyn Pearl Walker Nielsen, and the youngest of 12 children.  She married John Howard Pixton on August 31, 1955 in the Salt Lake Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Margene was a true example of unconditional love.  She made everyone feel as though they were the most important person around.  She loved spending time with her family, cooking, decorating, refinishing furniture, upholstery, and camping. Margene was happiest when she was surrounded by family and friends, with a grandchild in her arms, and the sounds of laughter ringing throughout her home. Her beautiful spirit made the Pixton home a place where family and friends wanted to congregate.

She is survived by her children: RoLayne (Gary) Bury, Bradley (Kimbelyn) Pixton, Janet (Martin) Southwick, Jennifer (David) Pulice, and Erin (William) Nelson, 28 grandchildren, 44 great grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandchild.  She was preceded in death by her husband Howard, of 64 years, her son Shaun (June) Pixton and six brothers and five sisters.
