Daughter of the late Edwin and Betty Nicholls. Sister-in-law to Douglas and Pip Cleveland, and Eleanor and John Caron. Aunt to Chantelle and Keith, Auntie to Liam, Sophia and Abigaile. Cousins James Wood, Robert Wood, Mark Wood, Stephen Wood, Mark Jones and David Jones. Nan grew up in Peterborough and attended Adam Scott Collegiate. Her father retired from the Police Force and they moved to Brighton to run a Family General Store. She finished school at East Northumberland Secondary School and studied music over the years encouraged by her Dad who played the piano. She loved teaching children and spending time at Presquile Provincial Park. She started working at the Brighton C.I.B.C. A transfer took her to the big town of Cobourg C.I.B.C. where she made many life long friends. This was when she met the Love of her Life, Don, on the night of the big flood, 1980. They travelled to many wonderful places over the years and often enjoyed a night in, playing guitar and piano. If friends and relatives were there, the more the merrier. She still continued her music and after leaving the bank to work for Dr. Ian Revill, Optometrist, starting teaching Music for Young Children classes and private piano lessons at home in the evening. She belonged to several choirs: Northumberland Symphony Orchestra, Sweet Adelines, Women in Harmony, Choral Legacy and Joyfull Noise. She began working with Dr. Linda Cole and Anju Clement for several years before illness forced her to retire for good. Having friends around her, Music and Art and lots of long walks brought her much joy as well as her love of animals. Many thanks to Dr Mulé, Dr. Koneru, Dr. Caldwell, and the wonderful nurses and staff at the Chemo clinic at Northumberland Hospital and the Palliative Care Unit.

Donna Jacobs-McCourt - February 23, 2022

As a former member of the local women’s chorus, CHORAL LEGACY, Nancy endeared herself so readily to her “singing sisters” with her friendly manner, sweet voice, and gentle, caring manner. We are heart-broken to learn of her far too soon moving to her Heavenly Home, but take comfort that she is now singing with the angels.

Dr Linda Cole - February 23, 2022

My heart goes out to you Don for your deep, deep loss. Nancy was a remarkable woman and one of the kindest people I have ever met. We actually worked together for 27+ years and she was as loyal an employee as friend. Nancy will be so missed by so many. I personally am heartbroken. My condolences to you, your family and other friends.

She really treasured you and your relationship.
