G6: Athol Waldo Lyon 1909-1974 & Winnifred Peters

Athol Waldo Lyon was born May 21, 1909 in Lafayette, Oregon. He was the eighth child of Frank Shiels and Janet Lyon.

Athol was but a nursing baby when his mother died of breast cancer. Bill and Cora Hodges cared for him. He is named after Janet’s brother Athol Shiels. A few years later, his father remarried, but the children didn’t care for their step-mother and gave her a bad time; as has been told by Harley. But, as he looked back, he decided she wasn’t that bad; she just wasn’t their mother.

In 1920, the Federal Census shows Athol Waldo living in Lafayette Oregon, household #183, as a boarder, with William and Elmira Kellas. He was just 10 years old. Just three doors down, in household # 180, is his father Frank, stepmother Alice, brother Osman and stepsister Genevive, (Alice’s daughter from a previous marriage). There must be some truth to “trouble in the family”.

He married Winnifred Peters on June 11, 1944, in Cheney, Washington, USA. They had no children.

Athol died on March 19, 1974, in Spokane, Washington, USA, at the age of 64.
