News release from Dillard's Inc.:


It is with great sadness we announce the death of Alexa Latimer Dillard, beloved wife of our founder, the late William T. Dillard and loving mother of the Dillard family.

Born in Nashville, Arkansas on October 30, 1916, Alexa Latimer married William T. Dillard on June 9, 1940. She was his devoted wife, loving mother of five children as well as his true partner and confidant in the founding and growth of Dillard's. Mrs. Dillard was known for her quick wit and eye for great merchandise, but more importantly for her unmatched devotion to her family. She will truly be missed.

Memorial services are being arranged by Ruebel Funeral Home in Little Rock, Arkansas.
