Birth: Jun. 13, 1907
Death: Jul. 7, 2001

Agnes was born to Roko Gateson and Mathilda Ozbolt Gateson on June 13, 1907 in Tacoma, Washington. They moved to Ronald, Washington a short time there after. In 1918 the family moved to Axford Prairie, Washington. She attended school at Axford Prairie. She married Nickolas "Nick" Desho on March 5, 1927. To this marriage were born 3 children; Harry Joseph (1928-1994), Harriet Theresa (1930-1987), and Kenneth Gene "Nick" (1933-living). There are several gandchildren, gr-grandchildren and gr-gr-grandchildren. Her husband was killed in a logging accident on Sept. 25, 1933 leaving her a widow with 3 children, the youngest being 2 months old. Her sister, Mary, moved in with her to watch the children as she went back to work. In 1935 she remarried to Ted Nystrom. That marriage ended in divorce in 1945. She then married Thomas P. Dixon on October 15, 1949. She and Tom were married almost 50 years until his death in 1999. They moved from New London, Wash. to Hoquiam in 1964 where she lived until her death. She had 3 brothers; Chuck, George & Roy and 6 sisters; Mary, Peg, Edna, Donna, Kathryn, & Ann. Ag was a very hard worker, working from the time she was 12 until retirement, her last job being the housekeeper for Dr. and Mrs. C. Timothy Smith in Aberdeen, Wash. for several years. She loved to garden and had the most beautiful roses in town. She was always there to lend a hand when anybody needed one and volunteered at a local nursing home till the age of 87. She was a member of St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church and Our Lady of Good Help Catholic Church. She was very proud of her Croatian heritage as both of her parents and her first husband were born in Yugoslavia.
