Lottie M. Croswell, 96, of Crossett, passed away on Saturday, September 16, 2017, at the Cherry Ridge Skilled Nursing Facility in Bastrop, Louisiana.
She was born in Ashley County on January 15, 1921, to her parents, Bob and Geneva Maxwell.
Mrs. Maxwell was a seamstress who sewed for her family and professionally. Her greatest masterpieces include the beautiful dresses she made for her granddaughters and great-granddaughters. She worked in retail at Harrison’s Clothing Store in Hamburg and at the Crown Colony in Hot Springs. She also lovingly crafted handmade quilts for her family and was a fantastic cook. Her old-fashioned teacakes could always be found on the kitchen counter and family dinners and holidays were always greatest around her dinner table. She loved her family, her church, and most of all, her Lord.
In addition to her parents and siblings, she was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Charles Robert Croswell; a granddaughter, Kay Goodwin; and a great-granddaughter, Kasey Goodwin.
She is survived by her only daughter, Margaret Nutt and husband, Roger, of Crossett; two granddaughters, Stephanie Pratt of El Dorado, and Beth Nutt of Little Rock; grandson-in-law, Charlie Goodwin of Stamps, Arkansas; two great-grandchildren, Benjamin, and Caroline Pratt; three great, great-granddaughters, Natalie, Ryleigh, and Kyleigh; along with a host of friends and extended family members.
