Feb. 14, 1917 — March 3, 2011

Lillian Lexon Richmond was born in Richmond on Feb. 14, 1917, and died in Davis on March 3, 2011, at the age of 94.

Lillian was a graduate of Richmond High School and attended the local business school. She went to work in Berkeley where she met her future husband, Frank.  They were married on August 13, 1938.

The Richmonds moved to Davis in 1953-54, when they purchased and operated the Davis Barber Shop on G Street. Lillian was a man’s barber long before the stylist of today. She later worked in Sacramento for the state departments of Motor Vehicles and Water Resources, where she retired in 1975. Paul Moore introduced Frank into the Lions Club where he remained a member until his death. Archie Moore had Lillian join the newly formed Soroptimist Club. The Richmonds also joined the Square Dance group which met in the old grammar school (now the park), and the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs. They traveled extensively after retiring. Lillian also became very involved in volunteer work, beginning with the SPCA when it first started, and including the Davis Senior Center and Meals on Wheels, Leisure Hour, STEAC, and later the Hospital Auxiliary, where she received her 8,000 hour pin. She left to take care of Frank until his death on April 29, 1996.

Lillian was preceded in death by her parents Henry and Clara (Wanderer) Lexon; her sisters Clara Hienemann, Alice Lexon and Marguerete Clausen; her brothers Henry and Raymond Lexon; her nieces Annette Lexon and Alice Hackley; and her husband Frank.

Lillian is survived by her son Floyd and wife Christine of Isleton and family; her daughter Lynn Marie and husband Edward Crandall of Fair Oaks; and many nieces and nephews.

At her request there will be no memorial service. Anyone wishing may donate in her memory to the Davis Senior Center’s “Meals on Wheels” program at 646 A St., Davis, CA 95616 or to Yolo Hospice, P.O. Box 1014, Davis, CA 95616.
