Ona Meda Dixon
Ona Meda Dixon passed away in Bellingham on Sunday, March 4, 2018. On the evening of Feb 27th she fell and broke her femur bone, had surgery the next day but was unable to recover from the shock and pain of the fall.
Ona was born November 05, 1929 in Port Townsend WA to Harvey Elmer and Frances Ida Kelm. At a young age she moved to Bellingham with younger siblings Karna (Postma) and Lyle when her parents bought a farm.
She graduated with honors from Bellingham High School in 1948. Her first car was a 1939 Pontiac coupe and her first job was with Everett Jones Motors in 1949. On February 9, 1951 she married Glen Leroy Dixon. Glen and Ona had three children and after twenty-seven years the two parted ways. Ona met partner Dave Sullivan who stayed by her side til she passed, a relationship of close to 40 years.
She had too many interests to name and what she spent more time on....baking yummy desserts, enjoying the nature's beauty, genealogy, crafts, collecting Christmas cookie jars, and just loving her family.
Ona is survived by Dave Sullivan, children Steven Leslie Dixon (Cynthia Lou), Lori Sue Starkovich (Mark), and Diane Elaine Luder (Steve) and grandchildren Catlin, Bailey, and Glen "Sam". She was loved, adored, and will be missed.
