Nickie loved life and more than anything her family. As her daughter put it so well, she was a typical girl. She had plans for being there for her children and grandchildren. She loved to sit and laugh and tell stories about all the antics we all had been through. She was Beautiful, Brilliant, Had A Deep Soul and a Giving Heart. The pride in her life was her children and the wonderful people they had become. She will be remembered and missed by so many whose’ lives she has touched.

  • Dear family,
    I was one of Nickie’s teachers at Big Walnut. She was in my World History class and Psychology class. I am so shocked and sorry for your grief. I talked to her at Max and Erma’s in Westerville just before it closed. I loved talking to her and we always had a give and take in good fun. God be with you all.

  • Bill, Tamma and Jackie,
    I am so sorry to hear of this. My heart felt condolences to you and all her family.
    May you find comfort and strength during this difficult time.

  • Nickie, you were a super fun friend who I have many fond memories of. You were a sweet sole and I know you are watching over us all. I can’t believe you are gone. I pray for your family during this time. Til I see you again.

  • Thoughts and prayers for Nicki! And for all the wheeler and Pendly families! May God bless you all!

  • Jackie…….In the world “at times like these” there are no words that make the pain of losing family stop. For an instant they may ease the pain while the words are read or heard ….. but then immediately the pain of it all comes crashing right back in. Only time ( if you are one of the “lucky ones “ ) can ease it. B U T …….The “good news” of that statement is this: The more you love someone the harder that pain is. Which means the Love you shared was beyond measuring…… and therefore the Sweet Memories you are left with are also beyond measuring ! So hold them close, close your eyes, and pull up one of those Special Memories ….. She is still there ….. right beside you…sharing that next sweet thing in your life, still there in front of you …guiding you in the right direction… still there … because you love Hard and Completely and because you are you ….you are loved Hard and Completely in return.
    You are in my prayers My Friend …….I have ask God to ease your pain and give you peace. Love ya Jackie, Tina Belcher

  • Nikkie was always kind ti me in school. May she rest in peace and fly high!! Many prayers for the family. Its never easy to lose a child.
