Irma Grace Atkinson Nixon aged 86, passed away on Sunday, August 5, 2018 at Reflections Assisted Living, Myrtle Beach, SC following a battle with cancer. 
Irma was born at home in Jordanville, SC, the daughter of the late John H Atkinson and Grace Hendrick. She was a graduate of Limestone University, SC, and a mathematics teacher at Myrtle Beach Junior High School. Irma was a long time member of the Myrtle Beach First United Methodist Church. Perhaps her most long-suffering (yet beloved) role was playing straight-man to her husband’s lighthearted fun and learning the love of Clemson Orange.
Irma is preceded in death by her husband Jack and her Granddaughter Jillian (Gina) and is survived by her son Byron Nixon (Eric), daughter Irma Jo Lacey (John) and Grandson Christopher Ivey (Katie).
A funeral service will be held at 11.00 a.m. Friday, August 10, 2018, at Myrtle Beach First United Methodist Church, 901 N Kings Hwy, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577
In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to:
First United Methodist Church of Myrtle Beach
