Awww, Mrs. Pixton was one of my favorites at Hillcrest. I had her for a sewing class my senior year. She had a lot of patience for sure! So so sad to hear of her passing.

Mrs. Pixton taught me to sew when I was in her class back in the early 70s. I adored her. What a sweet, wonderful woman! Rest in Paradise!

Mrs. Pixton is the reason I was Home Economics Sterling Scholar in 1992. What an amazing teacher and lady. So grateful to have known her and had my life touched by hers.

My Irish dance group performed at Sagewood on March 30th! If I'd known she was there, I would have made an effort to visit her.
