Maxie Faye (McNutt) Salyers

Hendersonville, TN

Maxie Faye Salyers lived a full and blessed life. She was born in Haleyville, AL on November 15, 1938 and departed this earth on April 5, 2014.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1985 and defeated it. She was one of MD Anderson Medical Center's longest breast cancer survivors, 29 years. She was a spirited lady who reluctantly took "no" as answer in sales.

She graduated college and received her degree from Florence State. She had an extensive career as a school teacher that included Haleyville City Schools, Lauderdale County Schools, along with schools in Mississippi. She was a motivated entrepreneur who co-owned a lovely specialty store, the Corner Boutique in Haleyville, AL. She co-owned an import jewelry business and an advertising business. However, she was most proud of her two children and her beloved granddaughter, Chloe, whom she devoted much of her final years.

Maxie Faye is survived by her son, Randall Nix; daughter, April Nix (Tim Bowden); granddaughter, Chloe; brother, Billy McNutt and his wife Shirley McNutt; sister-in-law, Ella Wayne McNutt (Lawson McNutt); several adored nieces and cousins; several friends and other family.

She is preceded in death by her father, Willie Belton McNutt; mother, Edis Oma McNutt; brothers, Cecil McNutt and Lawson McNutt; sister, Beatrice (McNutt) Morphew and brother-in-law, Orville Morphew.

A celebration of her life will take place at Cole & Garrett Funeral Home in Hendersonville on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at 7 p.m., with visitation from 4-7 p.m., and also a visitation at Pinkard Funeral Home in Haleyville, AL on Saturday, April 12, 2014 at 1 p.m., with a service to commence at 3 p.m. Maxie Faye will be laid to rest following the service at Hillcrest Cemetery in Haleyville, AL.
