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.

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

In lieu of flowers, please consider a contribution in her name to the Boulder City Animal Shelter.  It would make her so happy to care for the animals left behind. Family and friends can sign an online memorial guestbook at
