"Yoni" as she was known was loved by all. She worked most of her life at The Cash & Carry Store as a meat wrapper. All the kids loved her and when anyone ran into her they called out "Yoni" and she would answer to all. She loved her family and all small children. She traveled around the country with her husband whom was a truck driver when she retired. She was blessed to see as much of this country as she did. She would have Cajun reunions at her home in Crossville, TN and the Mardi Gras tradition would be part of it. Beads, decorations and signs at the road for all to follow that would travel from all across the states to come celebrate with the family. She loved the outdoors; her flowers and plants would feel the love and thrive.
Her services will be at 7pm Thursday, May 29, 2014 at Hixson Funeral Home in Welsh, LA. Visitation is from 10 am-10 pm with a rosary at 6 pm at the funeral home. Father May will officiate. It is only a one day visitation.
Food will be provided at her home at 303 Madge St., Welsh, LA. Anyone is welcome to come share in the memories and the beautiful life of our Mother, Iona Minton Erixon. The family would like to give a special thanks to her caregiver, Melda Wittge. Words of comfort may be shared with the family at www.hixsonfuneralhomes.com.

"I miss you granny! I will keep you in my prayers and remember you forever!" Savannah Dugas (Welsh, LA)
