Kathryn Rose Rovolis Nichols
December 2, 1933 – July 2, 2019
Early Tuesday morning July 2, 2019, Kathryn Rose Rovolis Nichols entered Heaven. We were so blessed that she was able to stay at home for her last few days on this Earth. This was only possible because of determination and dedication of family and Serenity Hospice.
Rose was born in Savannah, GA on December 2, 1933 to Tash and Ruby Carter Rovolis. A Service celebrating her life will be held on Friday, July 5, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. in Macon Memorial Park Funeral Home. The family will greet friends before the service, Noon until 2:00 p.m. at the funeral home. The Rev. Chris Minton will officiate and burial will follow in Macon Memorial Park Cemetery. The family requests that those in attendance dress casual. Flowers are accepted or donations may be made to Lizella Baptist Church, 2950 S. Lizella Rd., Lizella, Georgia, 31052.
Rose was the bride of Donald Nichols, Sr. being married on April 20, 1958. She was predeceased by her first husband, William Pate Jacobs, Sr. and five brothers. Rose was blessed with four beautiful children: William (Sharon) Jacobs, Jr. of Savannah, Kathy (Mike) Kirila of Virginia, Donnie (Janet) Nichols of Macon, Renee (Jim) Walder of Virginia. The blessings continued with the births of ten grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Also, she has four surviving sisters and numerous nieces and nephews.
As long as health permitted, Rose and Donald loved attending Lizella Baptist Church. Rose also enjoyed harvesting blueberries, strawberries, and figs. She turned these fruit jewels into the most decadent and delicious preserves. These little mason jars, filled to capacity, with “the fruits of her labor”, have been enjoyed by family and friends throughout middle Georgia and to a myriad of states…they are legendary, just like her!

I am so sorry to hear about this but I know Mrs Nichols is now in a better place with no more sorry or pain. While I didn't know Mrs Nichols very well, I did know her husband, Nick. Nick is the most genuine and loving person that I know. He always spoke about his wife and what she meant to him. They were the true meaning of Love and what marriage should be about. I will keep you and your family in my prayers Nick. Love you buddy.

What a beautiful angel she is!
Though I never met Ms. Rose, I feel as though I knew her from the sweet and wonderful words that Mr. Nick had spoken of her. There was no doubt they shared true love together. She is resting peacefully now, as she proudly looks down on her devoted husband, loving family, and dear friends. With love and honor, Cissy (MidSouth).
