Obituary of Michaela E Puthon

The family of Michaela Edith Puthon (Micki) is deeply saddened to announce the passing of Micki on September 20th, 2023, in Fort Myers, Florida. Micki was born in Bad Gastein, Austria in 1948 - she was the first of three children for Rudolf & Tamara Puthon (née Gutzmann). Following their migration from Europe to Canada, the family grew to include 2 more children - sister Keri (Puthon) Lucas and brother Andy Puthon. Micki’s post-secondary education was in visual arts. During the photographic stage of her career, her commercial photography work included creating album cover photos for Canadian recording musicians such as the band Lighthouse, and singer/vocalist Beverly Glenn-Copeland. Some of her creative photographic images are in Canada’s National Gallery (Ottawa, Ontario). In the early 1970’s Micki and her husband, Bruce Robertson, leveraged their creative talents and they began to purchase and renovate run-down historical properties in Toronto, renewing them into contemporary architectural single family homes. A growing passion for restoration and renovation led to their discovery of the town of Port Hope, Ontario. They relocated to Port Hope and soon after celebrated the arrival of their son Alexander (Alex) Puthon Robertson, born in 1977. Shortly thereafter Micki and family discovered Sanibel Island, Florida where they purchased a seasonal home, and thus began Micki’s next migration to S/W Florida soon became a permanent home. Micki thrived in the warmth and sunshine of S/W Florida. She pursued her life-long interests of the arts, including design, architecture, music, animal welfare and activities such as tennis, golf and fitness. It is there that Micki met and married her new life partner and devoted husband Samuel (Sammy) Nixon. Together, they built a life rich with shared interests and together they savoured many unique experiences with family and friends, including travel. Micki’s life ended on September 20th, 2023. She led a life very well lived. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her. No service will be held, a private family celebration of life in Micki’s honour will occur at a later date.
