Lisa Dell Nichols
Date of Birth: October 2, 1964
Date of Death: July 8, 2018
Lisa Dell Nichols, 53
Lisa passed away July 8, 2018 at her home. She was swiftly carried to Heaven by God's Angels. Through the trials and tribulation of Lisa's life, she always kept her faith and love for and of God in her heart. God gave her the determination, courage and faith to survive in life and provide love to any and all. In Heaven, God will gently guide and support her, as He has in life. Lisa will prove to be the greatest of all His angels. She had a warm and kind heart filled with unconditional love for everyone, especially those in need. She cared for every animal, no matter what, providing care, food, and love. Lisa always helped those in need, regardless of economic or social background. Lisa was blessed by having a priest for a close friend and mentor, Father David Schmitt. He gave her new guidance and strength when she needed it. He, like we, saw the goodness and godliness that was in her heart.
Anyone who knew Lisa, knew how brilliantly talented she was. She had an artistic flair, to say the least, and always added a little color to everything she touched. Lisa loved to draw and paint and never failed to create something beautiful. She loved to rearrange and decorate everything any chance she had, her creative spirit was truly never ending.
Lisa is the daughter of Melvin R. and Delores H. Nichols. She also leaves behind one brother, Melvin R. Nichols, Jr., two sisters, Tina Nichols Spaulding and Bonita Nichols Adkins, and one brother-in-law, Charles D. Adkins. Though she longed for them terribly, Lisa never had children of her own. So she took that love and gave it to her nieces, Katie, Brandi, Sophia, Anna, and Grace; nephews, Josh and Isaac; and great nephews, Jesse, Liam, Jackson, and Judah. Close friends, Sherry Farren and Father Dave will forever be in Lisa’s heart as well as our own. Lisa had many other relatives and friends left behind to morn and miss her greatly.
Predeceasing were her maternal grandparents, Evelyn Chapman and Donald Hughes, and paternal grandparents, Leo and Etta Nichols, infant sister Toni Michelle Nichols, and brother-in-law, Robert Spaulding. Lisa requested to be cremated at her death. Private services and burial will be held and only close family will be in attendance. There will be no public services or showing. Those who knew and loved Lisa will remember her and her caring heart forever and always.

From: Helen Lue Adkins/Frye Jul 13 2018 6:18PM It's hard for me to convey the brokenness in my heart and spirit over your passing. While simultaneously being inspired by the words of those who knew and loved you best, I'm saddened that an eternal light has been transferred behind the veil. You have and always will be my best friend, and the girl I knew and loved in my youth.
Lisa, as you wrote in my yearbook the day I asked you to be my son's godmother, "our lives went down different paths." I chose that of motherhood, and you chose to remain a free spirit. The memories we shared at the tender ages of 15 & 16, resulted in my oldest son writing a book about our earlier life adventures & a dedicated website with ASU. Our adventures in CA and WY, with the ultimate ending in Lincoln, NE, resulted in a positive life change for me as a wife and mother, and you returned to WVwith your parents.
I'll always love you, and remember our time together till I draw my last breath. Goodbye for now my dear friend. I love you --- always.... Lue 304-549-2837 I want to come express my deepest condolences to your family and show my respect. ??????
From: Billy Beach Jul 16 2018 12:17PM To the Nichols' family. I read about Lisa's passing this weekend in the paper. I instantly remembered all the times that myself as well as every child that knew anyone in this family, was always welcome at your house. I remember Lisa when I was in Jr High, like a little sister. Although our lives took different paths later, Lisa was again in my life in a different way, when she came back to Huntington. One thing for sure, she never changed. She sure could make me laugh, and did we have a time reminiscing about our childhood. Today I am heartbroken for this family, as long as this earth turns, there just won't be another Lisa. I will keep you all in my prayers.
