Nell L. Nicholson

Nell L. Nicholson, 96, formerly of North Greenwood Avenue, passed away early Tuesday morning May 15 2012 at Edison Manor, New Castle. Nell was born August 5, 1915 in New Castle to the late Hugh D. and Edice (Randall) Horton. She married Herbert M. Nicholson, who preceded her in death in 1999. Nell attended New Castle Senior High and was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She loved to sew and tell stories -- fondly describing childhood vacations or laughing when recounting her grandmother's antics. While her home was her main priority, Nell loved politics and was a poll worker and then a precinct captain for a number of years. She kept up with current and world events and loved a lively discussion or debate about government and political affairs. Nell's faith, as well as her wonderful sense of humor, kept her going through tough times and life's little "revoltin' developments." She was a lifelong member of First Christian Church of New Castle who, along with her husband, taught Bible study and Sunday school classes. Nell also loved to sing hymns and listen to the Gaither Homecoming and Elvis Presley gospel CDs. Nell is survived by her daughter Pat and son-in-law Skip Fabian of Youngstown, three grandchildren, and eight great grandchildren. In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a daughter, Sally Parks, a grandson, Bryan Fabian, and her sisters, Ethel Peters and June Montgomery. Visitation will be from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm Friday at the Turner-Myers Funeral Home, 208 North Jefferson Street, New Castle. Funeral services will follow at 1:00 pm at Turner-Myers Funeral Home with Pastor C. Charles Eckles of I.H.S. Gospel Ministries in Hermitage officiating. Interment will be in Graceland Cemetery, New Castle. Nell's family extends thanks to the staff of Edison Manor, particularly her 2nd floor family, who provided care and compassion during the last years of her life.
