She was born April 10, 1937, the daughter of Joseph Von Raab and Elizabeth Murphy, in St. Petersburg, Florida. Pixie graduated from Boulder City High School and spent several years working for St. Jude's Ranch and the Bureau of Reclamation. She then went on to work the most fulfilling job of her life, mother and housewife. Pixie was an active member of St. Andrews Catholic Church, teaching youth groups for many years.

Pixie is survived by her loving husband, Ben Wilkinson; her sister, Skippy (Gary) Ashtown; and two sisters-in-law, Lois and Dorcus Robinson. Her beautiful life will forever be cherished by her children, Lisa (Harry) Ray, Kelly (Harvey) Pearson, Carrie (Patrick) Little, David Patton, Lori (Timothy) Connelly and David Wilkinson; and grandchildren, Kristin, Brendan, Isabel, Scarlett and Andy. Her great-grandchild, Cruz, will have his "Grandma Pix" as his Guardian Angel forever. Funeral Mass will be at 10:30 a.m. at St. Andrews Catholic Church, 1399 San Felipe Drive, Boulder City. A luncheon will follow. Pixie's memorial bench will be located at Hemenway Park by the tennis courts in the spring. 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.
