Obituary for Willye Webb Nixon

Willye Webb Nixon passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 13, 2017. She
was born in Appomattox, VA on March 11, 1925 to Jennie Glenn Webb and John
Robert Webb. Her family moved to Webb Dairy Farm in Farmville when she
was a small child. Willye was the oldest of 9 children. She married her
husband, Hugh “Nick” or “Nix” Nixon on June 6, 1947 and together they
raised their 7 children on that same farm. Those who knew Willye would
say she was Nix's soulmate and would often find her by his side. Family
was very important to her and she made it known by her many selfless
actions. Willye was the gravitational center around which the family
revolved. In her free time, she loved to sew. She was well known for
making and giving away numerous book covers and pot holders. She enjoyed
her work as a floral designer with her mother at Webb Florist and also
with her sister, Rochie Allen, at Rochette’s Florist. She was preceded in
death by her loving husband of 66 years, Hugh Joseph Nixon; her son,
Thomas Paul Nixon; her mother, Jennie Glenn Webb; her father, John Robert
Webb; her brother, Henry Melvin Webb; and her brother John Thomas Webb.

She is survived by her siblings: Susan Hunt (Jimmy); Rochie Allen (Billy);

Webb. She is also survived by her children: Joe Nixon (Bev); Jimmy Nixon;
Ann Marie Howard (Jeff); Jerry Nixon (Marty); Bob Nixon (Susan); John R.
Nixon (Von). She also leaves behind 14 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
