Lynda Dixon Pearson
1944-2015

Beloved Lynda passed away on December 28, 2015 due to complications from pneumonia and the long term side effects of massive radiation treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma in 1972.
Lynda is survived by husband, Edward Pearson in Rancho Palos Verdes; daughter, Kathryn Pearson, son-in-law Chad Reichwald, and grandchildren Lincoln and Olympia Reichwald in Minneapolis, Minnesota; and brother Dan Dixon in Mt. Airy, North Carolina. Lynda was born in Macon, Georgia to parents John and Edith Dixon. She moved from Georgia to California in 1968 after graduating from the University of Georgia and marrying Ed. Lynda and Ed settled in Rancho Palos Verdes in 1975. Lynda was an incredible wife, mother, grandmother, and friend who loved her family and friends dearly. Lynda and Ed would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in June, 2016. Lynda was thoughtful, kind, giving, loyal, supportive, creative, funny, and courageous. Lynda loved children; she taught preschool for over twenty years at Rolling Hills Methodist Church, Head Start, and St. Peter's by the Sea Presbyterian Church. She enjoyed cooking and entertaining, sharing her talent and generosity with so many. Lynda volunteered throughout her life, including as the Assistance League Post Office Chair, a deacon at St. Peter's by the Sea Presbyterian Church, at the Long Beach Aquarium, and at Ladera Linda and Mira Catalina elementary schools. Lynda appreciated traveling extensively internationally and in the U.S. with her family. Lynda's family and friends will miss her forever, but they are comforted by decades of wonderful memories and Lynda's important contributions. The memorial service will be at St. Peter's by the Sea Presbyterian Church on Saturday, January 16 at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, send donations to St. Peter's by the Sea Presbyterian Church, the Aquarium of the Pacific, or Stanford Cancer Center.
