I have had the privilege of knowing Flo Nicknish and family through a lifelong friendship with her first born child, Libby. I identified with her in the fact that she was an only child, as was I, and went on to be educated as a nurse, I believe, which I also did. Then she was married a geologist, (which I also did),and began raising SEVEN children as if it were no work at all! (our similarities stop here-I only had one set of twins) She had so much love to give not just to all of them, but everyone who each of them befriended, married and had children with and on to the next generation. It didn't stop there- relatives, neighbors, friends from church, etc. Being a mother, mother-in-law, grandmother and great grandmother to such a large family, she never missed a Wedding, Birth, Baptism, Confirmation, Graduation, Birthday or their annual Christmas Eve event with a surprise visit from Santa every year!
Many of the gifts were simple and homemade by her with special significance given to the recipient, which I am sure are treasures they still have today.
I also was the recipient of many home made gifts she made for me at Libby's request-the most special to me was my "pocket angel". I put it in my pocket
of my hospital gown every day for over 10 weeks as I lay flat in a hospital bed in order to maintain my twin pregnancy to 30 weeks. Little did she know when she made that for me how much that "pocket angel" had to work, as I also lost my own mother a week and a half before they were born.
Such faith, love and kindness to all she encountered will forever be carried in the hearts and souls of the people whose lives were enriched by hers.
My family's sincere and heartfelt condolences to all of her family-I know without a doubt she is resting in eternal peace at the right hand of Jesus.

I remember her for all of the beautiful crafts items she made. I still have ones that I put out at Christmas time. Our prayers are with her family.
