Allison Joy Nichols, 62, of Glasgow died April 8, 2020.
She was born to Arden R. and Carol Ann (Holtberg) Nichols March 24, 1957, in Wolf Point, the third of nine children.
She attended school in Frazer, graduating in 1975. She received her bachelor of arts degree in communications with a minor in religion and psychology from MSU – Bozeman.
After many jobs — waitress, bank teller, nanny, sales — she found her calling, nail tech. She specialized in pedicures. Her gift of gab and sense of humor made her the gal to interview, listen, inform, console, scold and entertain you while she clipped, rubbed and massaged your feet. She had a special place in her heart for her Milk River Activity clients, keeping their feet in tip-top condition.
She loved to travel, often planning and researching for months. Her travels included art tours to New York, Washington, D.C., and Chicago, Ill.; a musical tour to England and Scotland; and two vacations to Maui. The annual sister trips were always a highlight.
For many years, she hosted Monday night gatherings with dinner, dancing and dessert. One hour of dining with two hours of “Dancing with the Stars.”
She believed in volunteering and was a member or board member of many organizations. She always donated her cooking talents to a worthy cause.
She was preceded in death by her sisters, Nancy Nichols and Dana Hansen.
She is survived by siblings, Brice Nichols of Frazer, Beth Flynn of Glasgow, Henry Flynn of Oswego, Harlan Nichols of Billings, Jeanine Beckley of Renton, Wash., Andi Johnson of Glasgow and Jan Gresseth of Friday Harbor, Wash.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date at the First Lutheran Church in Glasgow.
