Axie Rolline Nixon Withers, 82, of Fountain Hill, went to her heavenly home on Wednesday, June 14, 2023, at the Ashley County Medical Center in Crossett. Mrs. Withers was a native of Warren, a resident of Fountain Hill for over 60 years, a former resident of Hermitage, and a 1959 graduate of Hermitage High School.

Mrs. Withers was a member of the Eden Baptist Church where she sang and played the piano for many years.  She was also known to play at the Catfish Inn and Abes Ole Feed House. Her positive, funny and determined personality could light up any room and her husband described her as “a tough cookie and hard to beat.” Mrs. Withers was a wonderful cook and enjoyed canning.  Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her family, and she had the wonderful ability to make everyone she met feel special.  She had a contagious laugh and enjoyed visiting with people. Mrs. Withers loved big, was a loving and devoted wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
