Francie N. Richie

July 6, 1950August 3, 2018

Francie Nix Richie was born July 6, 1950 and left earthly home on August 3, 2018.

She was a long time member of First Baptist Church in Magnolia, Arkansas and an active member of the Magnolia community. She devoted hundreds of hours to military service members and veterans alike, through many different organizations.

She was preceded in death by her parents Aubrey and Ruby Nix and her oldest sister Dorris Nix Fields.

She is survived by her son Ash Richie; a sister Janie Nix Edwards and husband Doug; a brother Danny Nix and wife Cindy; and a multitude of loving family members.

Per her finial wishes, there will not be a traditional funeral service. Francie has chosen to donate her body to science and the UAMS Medical Training Program through the Genesis Legacy Foundation, so that others lives may be saved through her passing.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the "Vets Returning Home" non-profit organization located in Roseville, Michigan
