Margo Dillon ("Mimi") (84) of Geneva, Illinois passed away suddenly at her home on March 2, 2021. Margo was born in Sterling, Illinois on July 20, 1936 and was the daughter of Martin and Helene (Reynolds) Dillon. Margo grew up in Sterling and graduated from Sterling High School. She married James Lexvold (d. 2015) and lovingly raised their six children in St. Charles, Illinois. She moved back to Sterling in 1983 and remained there until her father's death, subsequently relocating to Geneva in 1990.
Margo was a longtime member of the Geneva Golf Club and patron of the Lyric Opera of Chicago. She also enjoyed gardening and playing bridge. She was an avid tennis and golf fan in her later years, both of which she had enjoyed playing when she was younger. Margo is most importantly and dearly remembered as a loving sister, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and friend. She was very involved in the lives of all of her family. She was always upbeat and positive and her love, companionship, advice and support will be greatly missed.
