Lottie M. Croswell, 96, of Crossett, passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 16, 2017, at the Cherry Ridge Skilled Nursing Facility in Bastrop, LA. She was born in Ashley County on January 15, 1921, to her parents, Bob, and Geneva Maxwell. Lottie was an amazing seamstress who not only sewed for her family, but also professionally. Her greatest masterpieces include the beautiful dresses she made for her granddaughters and great-granddaughters. Lottie 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.
