Rexan Wilson – June 22, 1949- Nov. 16, 2019

Rexan ”Paula” Wilson nee Cowan died peacefully at Riverbend Hospital on November 16, 2019 in Eugene, Oregon at the age of 70. Rexan went into the light surrounded by her mother and stepfather Patricia and William Pardun of Florence, Oregon, her sister Kathleen Franklin of Creswell, Oregon. and her daughter Tammy Bailey of Creswell, Oregon. She is survived by four siblings. She was preceded in death by three siblings.
Rexan was born on June 22, 1949 in Portland, Oregon, to parents Patricia and Frank Cowan. She graduated from Yoncalla High School in 1967 where she lettered in track.
Rexan then went on to become a devoted mother to her daughter Tammy and her son Christopher Cowan of Astoria, Or. She later became the proud and loving Grandmother to five grandchildren, Richter Cowan 15, of Astoria, Ore., Leroy Cowan 13, of Astoria, Ore., Kaelin Cowan 10, of Bend, Ore., Kylan Visker 8, of Creswell, Ore., and Nox Cowan 6, of Seneca, Ore.
Along the way she taught two generations to trust in the force, strive to always ”Make it So”, enjoy the simple pleasures of second breakfast, take a walk in the woods to clear your mind, dangle your feet in the water to recharge your spirit, that dragons, elves and faeriefolk are real if you only believe, and always look for the magic around us, because it is everywhere.
She will be cremated at Alpha Crematorium and the family will have a private interment at a later date.
