In the early morning, Saturday September 29, 2012 Annie Mae Dotson Axel made her transition from earth to glory. She was born on November 2, 1924 to James (Jim) Henry and Inez (Ike) Dotson in Manchaca, Texas. She attended Manchaca School in Manchaca, Texas and later after moving to Austin with family, she attended the Austin public schools.

Annie Mae was united in marriage to Oblyn Axel for 66 years (August 14, 1946). No children were born to this union but they always had nieces and nephews around.

Annie Mae confessed Christ at an early age attending the Bethel A.M.E. in Manchaca, Texas. After moving to Austin she joined the Metropolitan A.M.E. church where she was an active member. Annie Mae was a steward, a member of the Albert Williams Usher Board and Carrie B. Warren Missionary Society. She was always willing to serve wherever needed.

Annie Mae and her husband used their special gift of preparing food for the Friday free lunch in the church fellowship hall. They both enjoyed what they did best, preparing food and pleasing their church family and others.

She was a licensed beautician for over 50 years. She touched many lives by using her special gift of styling hair and using her hands to make women look beautiful. She spent many days and hours in the beauty shops of East Austin. Annie Mae was a beautician for many women in Austin and surrounding areas, always making women look their best. Annie Mae spent many years at the Austin State School until she retired.

Her memories captured many audiences as she recalled family history and Austin history. Her conversations often amazed others. The history pages of Annie Mae's book are closed but the memories still live on.
Annie Mae spent her last year at Heritage Park Convalescent home with her husband Oblyn.

She leaves to cherish her memories: husband Oblyn Axel, sister Ruth Roberts, uncle Earlee Bunton, two sister-in-laws Ella Rutledge and Vivian Axel, her special cousin and guardian Charlesetta Wormley (Leroy), a special nephew Curtis Dotson, a special niece Linda Roberts and a special great niece Curtricia Thompson and many other nephews, nieces, great nieces and nieces and nephews and special cousins and friends.
