Susan (Pixie) Wilkinson, 80, passed away peacefully with family by her side on December 19, 2017.  She is the daughter of Joseph Von Raab and Elizabeth Murphy.  Pixie was born in St. Petersburg, Florida on April 10, 1937.

Pixie’s love of life was evident in all her activities.  She was an avid tennis player, a master gardener and a world traveler.  She was happiest at church and with her animals.

Her Great Grandchild, Cruz, will have his Grandma Pix as his Guardian Angel forever.
