Her girlhood was spent in Schneider and later in Lowell, Ind. Her education was begun in the public schools of Schneider and was completed in the High school at Lowell.
On Sept. 10, 1919, she was united in marriage with Charles Nichols. One year ago this last June Mr. and Mrs. Nichols came to Steger to establish their home. During their residence in this community, Mrs. Nichols lived such a life of hearty good cheer and unselfish friendliness that her departure brings genuine sorrow to her many friends who find it hard to think that she has passed on into eternal joy.
Mrs. Nichols received Christian baptism in the Presbyterian church and attended the Presbyterian school during the early years of her life. Since coming to Steger she has given herself in an enthusiastic way to the activities of the Congregational church. Two weeks before her illness she had accepted a class in the Sunday school and was looking forward to her work as a teacher with great eagerness. The Ladies' Aid counted her as one of its most loyal members and the regular services of the church saw her present with consistent regularity.
There survive to mourn her departure and to cherish her memory, her husband, Charles B. Nichols; her father, Edwin Haskell; two sisters, Mrs. Wilbur Wehlan and Grace Haskell; and three brothers, Fay, Burdette and Earl Haskell. Many other relatives as well as a host of friends join with the family in their sorrow and share with them those memories of a life which made Mrs. Nichols loved by all who knew her.
