The Russell Library Remembers Miss Eunice Mixon

Submitted by Ashton Ellett on Thu, 03/07/2019

Eunice L. Mixon, one of the most colorful characters in Georgia political history, passed away on November 22. She was laid to rest yesterday after a funeral service at the First Baptist Church of Tifton. “Miss Eunice,” a mainstay of civic life and Georgia politics for more than four decades, was 87 years old.

Although Mixon neither ran for nor held elective office herself, she backed and boosted the campaigns of many who did—usually while attired in pink and sporting a matching parasol. A ubiquitous presence in Georgia Democratic circles since the 1970s, she began working locally on behalf of Democratic candidates before becoming more involved at the statewide level. In that role, Mixon epitomized the sort of grassroots, retail politics familiar at the time.
