Margaret J. (Shore) Nichols

September 30, 1930 ~ July 5, 2022 (age 91)


Margaret Jean Nichols died Tuesday, July 5, 2022 at the home of her daughter, Barbara. Jean was born on September 30, 1930 to Simon William (Bill) Shore and Harriet Martha Burns on their farm in the town of McDonough, NY. She graduated High School from North Syracuse, NY, where she met her future husband, Robert Nichols. They married on June 11, 1948 in Biloxi, MS, where Bob was stationed by the Air Force. They spent the remainder of their service in Wichita Falls, TX. They returned to Central New York in 1952 and lead a loving and full life together.

They loved to travel and visited all of the lower 48 states. Bob died in October 2015, a loss that Jean felt daily. Jean was also predeceased by her parents and two brothers  Simon William Shore Jr. and Herbert Armond Shore.

She leaves behind to mourn her loss her daughter Barbara Nichols Randall (James Randall), son Kenneth W. Nichols (Kris Korta Nichols), granddaughters Brianna Nichols, Allison Buckingham (James Buckingham), Holly Randall, grandson Gil Randall, great granddaughter Aurora Buckingham and great grandson Soren Buckingham. Jean loved flowers and it is her wish that you give a bouquet to someone you love. A bouquet of wild daisies always gave her joy.
