A memorial service will be held at 4 p.m. Monday, June 26, 2017, at the Elloree United Methodist Church, with the Rev. Dr. Barry A. Allen presiding. Visitation will be held an hour prior to the service in the church fellowship hall.
Born Dec. 18, 1928, at home in Daytona Beach, Florida, she was the daughter of the late Nathan Thomas Nix and Ruby Yarborough Nix. She was a member of the Elloree United Methodist Church and a former member of the Santee Cooper Country Club Ladies Golf Association.

She was an avid golfer and head scorekeeper for countless golf tournaments held in the Santee area for many years. Always supporting her children in their interests, she served as a Girl Scout Leader and assistant high school tennis coach.
