Dixie was born January 11, 1922 in Colquitt,  the daughter of Emmett Nalls and Susie G. Nalls. Mrs. Harrell was married to Harry Hartwell Harrell. She graduated from Miller County High School and was a member of Colquitt First Baptist Church. Dixie lived most of her life in Miller County and was a homemaker.

Dixie loved gatherings; fellowship with her family and friends was a favorite pastime. She had a dry sense of humor, which resulted in many smiles and giggles. Dixie could often be found working in her yard.

Survivors include her son, Jerry Harrell and his wife, Rosemary, of Eldorendo, Ga.; her siblings, Collie Nalls of Texas and Inez Henry of Colquitt; two grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren.

Dixie was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; her siblings, Perry Nalls, Lester Nalls, and Gladys Hayes; and her granddaughter, Stephanie Lynn Harrell.
