Jayne A. Nichols, 33, our beloved daughter was taken to Heaven on Sept. 22, 2008. When Jayne was born April 7, 1975, she brought the greatest joy imaginable to the family. Jayne became a Registered Nurse and lived her life helping everyone she knew. She was the most caring, giving, loving person God ever placed on earth. She had a deep love for all animals and a great sense of humor. She was so forgiving to those who wronged her and yet she had a hard time forgiving herself. Her memory will be cherished forever by her loving parents, Scott and Terry Nichols; grandmother, Jerry Beth Lewis; uncles, Mike Lewis, Tom (Elaine) Lewis and Randy Nichols; aunts, Marsha Lewis and Roxanne Nichols; and cousins, Jaeson and Tim Iovinella. There will be no viewing. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium. Memorial service, 10 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 25, 2008, in the Montgomery & Steward Chapel, with the Reverend Dr. Rick Calhoun officiating. Online condolences, www.montgomerysteward.com *****

  2. I attended school at PCC with Jayne,(for LPT&LPN).Needless to say,I was very shocked and saddened to hear about Jaynes passing at such a young age.Although I didn’t know her very well she alway’s made me smile,when she’d quietly slip into class in her stocking feet, and she’d smile sweetly. Apparently she’d vacuumed and left her shoes to far away from the door before she’d leave for school. She was a ray of sunshine in our lives, only there for a brief fleeting moment and I will trully miss her. God bless and comfort you all. Sincerely,Sandra

  3. I went to South High School with Jayne. I did not know her very well, but she was best friends with my friend Margo. Jayne was always very nice to me whenever I saw her in school, or when I saw her with Margo. I was very shocked and saddened to hear about her passing. My prayers are with her and her family during this very hard time. Jayne, may God bless you and your family.

  4. I knew Jayne through my older brother Odilon. She was one of the sweetest people I have ever had the privelige of knowing. She was kind, beautiful, and genuinely seemed to care for me as a “little brother” even though she had no reason too. I even remember a time when she seemed disappointed with me when I got a bad report card (or 2). We of course lost touch over the years but was I always happy to hear about her and if she was doing well. She left us too soon and I will truely miss her…

  5. Scott and Terry, we are so sorry for your loss of Jayne. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  6. jayne how i will remember your smile, your optomism, and most of all you had a light that always shined. thank you for all the encouraging e-mails i will cherish them, i will cherish one of our last conversations last year through e- mail about how God Is Real And How We know He will never leave us. i will miss you jayne, but i know i will see you again, standing right next to the lord jesus, until then, i send you my love and a hug to you in heaven

  7. I knew Jayne from CMHIP. The first time I met her (at cross-shift report) I was so impressed with her;she was so pretty, her report of the patients & her shift was so easy to listen to & understand & she made me feel comfortable to work on a ward that I don’t usually work. I fell in love with her(for my son!) & thought of & refered to her as my “hopefully someday daughter-in-law”. I told my son about her but I never was out-going enough to match them up with each other. My son, Frank, liked the way she spelled her name. When she quit working at CMHIP I thought she went to work at PPMHC so every time I drove by I thought of her & wanted to go in & see her. I am so very sad to know she has gone to heaven. I wish I & Frank would have gotten to know her. I am so very sorry for you, Scott & Terry.

  8. No person is ever truly alone.
    Those who live no more,
    Whom we loved,
    Echo still within our thoughts,
    Our words, our hearts.
    And what they did
    And who they were
    Becomes a part of all that we are,
    Jayne, you live in all of us. Thank you for bringing strength, inspiration, beauty, love, forgiveness, and grace to our hearts.

  9. I worked with Jayne for some time and we did have some laughs. She had a very kind soul, and I will always remember her and her reeses peanut butter cups. She will be missed…May God give you strength.

  10. Jayne has as much courage and compassion as anyone I have ever worked with; from one RN to another, God’s Speed.
    CO RN

  15. I worked with Jayne for a short while and have found alot of good qualities about her. I will always remember her for her free personality. She always talked about being free from a world of hate. Theres a quote we once shared “Some birds aren’t meant to be caged, there wings are just to colorful” You will be missed by all…..

  16. Terry,Scott & Family,
    I was shocked & saddened to learn today that Jayne had passed away. I knew Jayne through my medical practice in Pueblo, and later when both she & I were working at CMHIP. She was always a sweet, kind, and gracious soul. She was so good with the patients at the hospital. My heartfelt thoughts & prayers are with you.

  17. I am deeply saddened by Jayne’s passing. On occasion, I worked with her. She was a beautiful young lady, inside and out. She shared openly about herself with me one evening, and her personal story touched me despite our brief acquaintance. I admired her strength and her compassion for others. I know God holds her closely in His compassionate loving arms. I pray He gives those of us fortunate enough to have known her comfort and peace. God bless you.

  18. Jayne was a loyal and wonderful friend. She was a kind gentle spirit blowing in the wind, creatively changing the lives of those she touched for the better. She always cared about others more than herself, making her an excellent Nurse with a great deal of compassion for her patients. She loved animals dearly, which speaks to her goodness and the size of her heart. If caring about and giving freely to others without any expectation of ever receiving anything makes for a good Angel, there is now a very powerful new Angel in heaven. I pray you are getting the rest you so greatly deserve, quietly in the clouds, serving God from above. You will not soon be forgotten ~ I know I will miss you very much….

  19. To the memory of a beautiful young lady who served Jesus and is now resting in his arms. God Bless her. God Bless Scott & Terry and comfort them in their great loss – and in their great blessing of having her in their arms for 33 years. Hubert & Nancy Nichols

  20. I worked meny years with Jayne at CMHIP. She was a great nurse and friendly person. I offer my condolences to her parents and family.

  21. Jayne was a sweet quiet person and a great next door neighbor. She always did have a smile on her face. We can’t believe we won’t see her walking to get her mail with her pups anymore. She will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family now.

  22. Terry, I am very sorry to hear about your loss. I know she ment the world to you and your husband. But God had a greater plan for her and now all we can do is be grateful for the time that He allowed her to fill everyones lives with joy. She will definitely be missed.
    I will keep you and your family in my prayers during this difficult time.

    Love Always,

  24. I am sorry to hear about your loss. I was just thinking of Jayne yesterday and wondering how she was getting along.I worked with Jayne at CMHIP and thought she was a special, caring nurse who always wanted to do her best. She had a great sense of humor and always tried to do her best for her patients. I can still hear her laugh and always enjoyed talking with her.I thought she had a delightful and impish way of teasing others which was a cute part of her personality.I know she will be thought of and missed by family, friends and coworkers.
    Dr. Janet Morales
