Theresa Elizabeth Nichols

February 15, 1986February 8, 2018

Theresa Elizabeth Nichols, 31, of Fort Wayne died Thursday, February 8, 2018. Nearly 32 years ago God blessed our family with a little girl. The doctors said she would never live, but God set out to show us all who is in control. Many doctors would do nothing for her because they said, “she has no quality of life,” but they did not know her. Her smile would light up a room, and her joy despite her suffering blessed many lives. God used her to show His power, glory, and love. She changed our lives, and that of many others. Her presence here on earth will be greatly missed. She is survived by parents David & Marsha; sisters, Jennie (Rob) Longardner, Maranda (Bill) Horn, Catherine (Randy) Brautzsch; niece, Addie; nephews, Ashlee and William; and her loving nurses, Carole Yerrick and Renee Watley. She is preceded in death by grandparents, Paul and Martha Niman, Robert Nichols, and Viola Moore; aunt, Bethany Nichols; and uncle, Kenny Niman. Funeral will be Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at 1:00 PM at Elzey-Patterson-Rodak Home For Funerals, 6810 Old Trail Road, Fort Wayne, IN 46809 with visitation beginning at 11:00 AM. Burial will be in Prairie Grove Cemetery. Preferred memorials may be made to the family.

You know, there are some souls whose very existence makes the world better, and she is one of them. I hurt so much for loved ones left behind, and I'm praying for all of you, but I also thank God that she is dancing in Heaven, now, praising The King!
