Mary Nixon

Mary Christine Nixon, 80, of Crawfordsville died on the morning of April 27, 2009.

She was born Dec. 21, 1928 in Knox City, Texas, the oldest of eight children, to Levi P. and Bryant Ada Woodall.

Mrs. Nixon was a member of the Church of Christ since 1957. She was a kind, generous and caring person who took care of many family members. If they needed her she was there for them. If someone needed a place to live, she gave it to them. If someone was hungry, she fed them. She spread the word of God to anyone who would listen.

She is survived by her husband Jesse, to whom she was married for 63 years; her four children, Jim, Ron, Karen and Steve; sisters Yvonne and Betty; brothers Ken and Butch; and four grandchildren.

Funeral services were held May 2 also at Sweet Home Funeral Chapel.

Sweet Home Funeral Chapel is handling the arrangements.
