Our Mom, Lenore Rix, died in the early morning of June 6th with us by her side. She joined her husband John Rix who died in 2007.
In the years since his death, she went to Alaska and Italy along with spending her winters in Texas. She amazed us with her independence in life with all things inside and outside the home.
Her daughter Linda (Rick) has two daughters Jamie and Jordyn along with 5 granddaughters and Scott has a son Evan (Samantha) and daughter Sam (Daniel) with a son and daughter.
Lenore was born February 5, 1935, in rural Iowa the middle of five children to Elmer and Margaret Meyer. Marlin and Carol have died. Allen (Caroline) and Joyce (Bob) and sister-in-law Dee remain along with numerous nieces and nephews with their own children and grandchildren. The last 7 months of her life she lived at Windsor Manor in Nevada, Iowa and we want to thank the staff for her care. Additional staff from Suncrest Hospice contributed to her care and we also want to thank them.
We miss you Mama and while we know your quality of life on earth wasn't at your preferred level at the end it is hard for us to not have you here with us. We believe that in loving someone it is oftentimes a greater gift to say goodbye on this earth for a much better union with God and others to be loved in heaven. May we all Rest in Peace with this knowledge.
Corinthians 1:5 - For as we share abundantly in Christ's sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.
