IDAHO FALLS, ID -- Norene Harris Heaton Dixon, 81, died at Idaho Falls on January 10, 2006, at Riverview Care Facility, with her family by her side.

She was born November 20, 1924, in Ririe, Idaho. She was the ninth and youngest child of Jonas Sinclair Heaton and Annie Jane Harris Heaton.

Orphaned at the age of six, Norene was raised by loving brothers and sisters who affectionately called her Nonie. She attended schools in Idaho Falls, Idaho; Los Angeles, California; and Ririe, Idaho. She graduated from Ririe High School in May, 1942.

On June 24, 1942, she married her high school sweetheart, Allen Dixon, in the LDS Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah. During World War II, while her husband served in the U.S. Army for three years, Norene lived in Ogden, Utah. Norene and Allen later made their home in Ririe for five years, Rigby for 42 years, and Idaho Falls for 13 years. Norene owned and operated a beauty salon in Rigby until she retired in 1982.

She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and served as Primary President for many years. Norene was a kind, warm-hearted person who loved children – especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Norene is survived by her husband of 63 years; her son, Lynn (Heather) Dixon of Salt Lake City; daughters, Linda (Don) Whitehead and Joni (Nick) Dixon, of Idaho Falls; a sister, Helen (Cliff) Montgomery of Boise, Idaho; seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her cherished grandson, Mike Dixon; three brothers (Vern Heaton, Lloyd Heaton, and Jonas Heaton); and four sisters (Grace Blaylock, Laura Schley, Mae Wheeler, and Ethlyn Cleverly).

Funeral Services will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, January 14, 2006, at Wood Funeral Home, 273 N. Ridge Avenue, Idaho Falls, Idaho. The family will visit with family and friends from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, January 13, 2006, at Wood Funeral Home, and for one hour prior to the funeral services on Saturday. Burial will be at Pioneer Cemetery, Rigby, Idaho.

The family wishes to extend their heartfelt thanks to the staff at Riverview Care Facility, Idaho Falls, for their loving care of Norene, and to Aspen Hospice for their help and concern.
