Lori "Jean" Rabon Wixted Obituary

Lori "Jean" Rabon Wixted, 54, lost a long-fought battle with a brain tumor on Monday, June 1, 2015.

Jean was a bright ray of sunshine to everyone who knew her. She was happy, fun-loving and positive to her last moments; she will be forever missed by her family and many friends.

Jean was preceded in death by her father, Dayton G. Rabon, and her grandparents, Ray and Dahlia Emens, and her in-laws, William and Nancy Wixted.

She is survived by her husband of 21 years, Leo Wixted and their daughter, Kaitlin, of Albuquerque, NM; her mother, Shirley Rabon; brothers, Randy and wife, Cheri, Jeff and wife Judy; Tim and wife, Debbie, all of Alamogordo, NM; sister-in-law, Jill Anne Adona of San Diego, CA; nieces, Kristy Rabon Alsleben (Matt) and Aneyla Adona; nephews, Chad Rabon (Paige), Chase Rabon (Laura), Travis Rabon, Chaney Rabon, Tom Rabon (Whitney), Sam Rabon, and Blaise Adona; great nieces Lexi, Brooke, Mia and Paisley; great-nephews, Drew, Dane and Arlo.

Jean loved and valued her family enormously, as well as her special extended family, Phil and JoAnn Griego, lifelong best friend, Terri Werner, and so many others who truly loved Jean.

A Rosary will be recited on Friday, June 5th, at French Mortuary on Wyoming Blvd. at 7 p.m.
