Obituary

ELVIN E. NICHOLS
10.18.43 - 03.30.21
WENATCHEE, WASHINGTON


Elvin Earnest Nichols, 77 years of age, passed at his home on March 30, 2021 due to IPF (Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis). Elvin was born October 18, 1943, to Dorothy and Forrest (Nick) Nichols, in Lindsay, California. Graduated from Lindsay High School in 1962 and attended Pasadena Nazarene College for a brief time, stating, “college is not for everyone”. Elvin married Peggy Vincent on September 3, 1965 in Lindsay, California. Two years later Elvin was honorably discharged from the Marine Reserves...he was then a father of a 5 month old daughter, Marnye and three years later Tiffanye joined the family.

He was employed by Champion Mobile Homes in Lindsay for “10 +” years ...then moved to Wenatchee, Washington in 1976 beginning his more than thirty year career as a Finish Carpenter, working primarily in new construction.

In July of 1995, Elvin played a major role in opening Pickle Papers. He built all the displays, counters, finish work and provided a large portion of the financing. There is a lot of Elvin’s heart and soul in that store - he was always ready to help build one more shelf or loan Peggy and Marnye whatever was needed.

Elvin was a faithful Christian attending Sage Hills Church at the time of entering Glory. He is survived by his wife, Peggy; children: Marnye Woodrum (Casey), Tiffanye Nichols Zsoka (Ken). Preceded in death by his parents, and his brother, Richard A. Nichols, mother-in-law and father-in-law, Ocie and James Vincent, and nephew, Andrew Vincent.

A Memorial Service will be held at Heritage Memorial Chapel, 19 Rock Island Road, East Wenatchee, Washington, Thursday April 8, 2021 at 1:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be made to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, 230 East Ohio Street, Suite 500, Chicago, IL 6061. www.ipffoundation.org/donate/

THANK YOU to Hospice for their amazing help in Elvin’s journey, especially to his primary Hospice Nurse, Renata and to Gail Dix in the final hours of Elvin's life.
