Obituary of Lily May Nixon

Please share a memory of Lily to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Lily May Nixon (nee Logan) on Friday, March 1, 2024 at the age of 93 years. She was predeceased by her loving husband of 72 years, Eldon Nixon; parents Grace (nee Lofthouse) and Charles Logan; sisters Elizabeth Adair and Gracie Logan; and daughter-in-law Diane Nixon. Lily May is survived by sons Daryl (Bonnie), Douglas (Rana) and Dwight (O.G.); daughter Dwila (Brad); grandchildren Rob (Jenn), Amy (Mike), Brad (Tara), Olivia, Jenae (Curtis), Shea, Ben, Andie and Trey; great-grandchildren Hannah, Tucker, Kali, Kayden, Cadence, Macin, Ryden, Pierce and Addilynn Lily; as well as many extended family members and friends.

Lily May grew up on a farm near Griffin. After high school, Lily May attended Moose Jaw Normal School and became a school teacher. She taught at Freewill School near Fillmore for three years. While teaching there, she met and married Eldon. Lily May taught one more year at Crieff School while also working on the farm that she and Eldon owned. Lily May and Eldon moved to Bemersyde for a short time, and then to Kronau in 1959, where they lived for 53 years. During those years, Lily May and Eldon enjoyed travelling, spending 11 years as snowbirds in Yuma, Arizona. In 2012, Lily May and Eldon moved into Stewart Court Housing Co-Operative in Regina.

During the busy years of raising four children, Lily May worked occasionally as a substitute teacher at Saar School, took in boarders, and later worked as an insurance agent. She was a loving wife, an amazing mother, a good friend, and a dedicated community member who belonged to the 4 Square Community Club and volunteered at many community events, including those at the Kronau Hall and Kronau Curling Rink. She was kind to everyone and adored by anyone who met her.

Lily May loved sports! In her younger years, she played women’s softball. After moving to Kronau, she tried her hand at curling, and then spent endless hours driving to, and cheering her kids on at various sporting events. For many years, Lily May ensured that she and Eldon had season tickets to the Saskatchewan Roughriders and to the Regina Pats games. When they could no longer attend in person, Lily May watched on television and on her computer.

A celebration of Lily May’s life will be held at a later date for her immediate family. In lieu of flowers, donations in Lily May’s memory may be made to Hospitals of Regina Foundation (Palliative Care Unit) at or send a cheque to #225 - 1874 Scarth Street, Regina, SK, S4P 4B3.
