Aili Elaine (Jewett) Dixon

Date of Death: August 20, 2022

Date of Birth: December 13, 1939


Aili Elaine (Jewett) Dixon -

Born December 13, 1939, Aili passed away peacefully in Brunswick, Maine  at the age of 82 on August 20, 2022 in the loving care of her daughters.

Born in Bath, Maine to Alvin E. and Nellie (Kent) Jewett (born and raised in Mount Pleasant, New Brunswick), Aili attended Morse High School followed by Maine School of Practical Nursing, where she earned her LPN designation.  Aili met her husband Donald H. Dixon in Bath, Maine, who then had three children Susan, Mark and Craig. Aili and Don also had a daughter, Dianna.

Aili lived in Bath and Brunswick, Maine for nearly her entire life, except for one year when she lived in Florida. She worked for many years as an LPN ultimately serving as a charge nurse at various facilities. During her many years as a resident of Pejepscot Terrace in Brunswick, she served as an active board member.

Aili enjoyed time playing Bingo and attending family gatherings and parties. She was also always doing crochet for families, friends and even various fundraisers. Most of all, she enjoyed time with her family, especially her grand children and great grand children, and staying in touch with her close friends.

Aili was pre-deceased by her parents Alvin and Nellie, her husband Donald, step-son Mark Dixon, brother Norman Jewett, brother-in-law Richard Fullerton, her close cousin David Jewett, family friend Estella Mae Crandlemire Bodechon, and her close personal friends Mary Eltman, Nancy (Temple) Greenleaf Woodhouse and Rita Hudson

She is survived by her daughter Dianna H. (Dixon) Morin with husband Patrick and their children Derek T. Morin (wife Colleen), Hillary M. Peterson (husband George), and Hayley S. Morin; step-daughter Susan (Dixon) Hardison (husband Cliff) and their children Amber Hardison and Matthew Hardison; step-son Craig Dixon; great grandsons Finn Morin and Louis Peterson; brother Robert Jewett (wife Georgia) and family; sister Sarah (Jewett) Fullerton and family; sister-in-law Sharon Jewett (wife of Norman) and family; cousin Linda (Bodechon) Doughty (husband Ray) and Albert Bodechon; several cousins and extended families in New Brunswick:
Catherine Kent Troy (husband Donald), Sterling Kent (wife Patricia) and Allison Kent (wife Willy); her close friends Sharon Bean, Patricia Mangione, and Henrietta Rogers; and her own family's close friends Debbie Grobe and Kelly Gibson.

Aili’s family is grateful for the support provided by Chan’s Hospice and Linda Adams Home Care during her last several weeks, allowing her to be cared for at home.

Upon her wishes, there will be no funeral. Her family will hold a private function this coming fall.
