We Remember

NICHOLLS, Madeleine

1932 – 2023

Madeleine Nicholls, 90, of Kelowna, BC, peacefully passed away on Wednesday, January 11, 2023.

Madeleine was predeceased by her loving husband and best friend, Kenneth Roy and sons Kody and Mickey Nicholls. Mom is survived by her sons, Shane (Kathy), Lance (Jan) and Jayeson (Adeline), along with 10 Grandchildren and 20.5 Great-Grandchildren.

In her final days, Granny was able to tell all her family members how much she loved them. We, in return, were able to tell her how much we loved her.
Granny gave us each a piece or two of solid advice. She blessed each one of us with holy water. We all had loving conversations with her about the many important Nicholls Family traditions and how we, as her family, will carry these on. We are all so grateful for the family that she and Papa (Ken) created and the importance of family that they instilled in each of us.

Granny, we are so overjoyed that you are with Papa again; you have waited so long to see him.
Madeleine, Mom, Granny, Great-Granny you will be truly missed and will be in our hearts and thoughts forever.
We love you always and forever,

Your Entire Family

We would like to say a special thank you to the staff at Interior Health Home Support for all their help in keeping Granny comfortable in her own home.
