    I am so terribly sorry to have learned about Nicole’s passing.  As kids we spent many weekends and summers together growing up on Quarry Hill Road. She was so adventurous, up beat, brave, and outgoing… and always smiling! We would laugh and talk about boys, climb trees, and camp out. We were best friends. While we hadn’t seen one another in some time I would follow her progress in life through social media. It was obvious she was a doting mother, hard working, persevering, and inspiring. She was a bright light in so many lives, I’m sure more than we even know. My thoughts and prayers are with her girls as well as the Rickert and Davelli families as you try to navigate through this heartbreaking and difficult time. She was taken from this Earth far too soon, but must have been greatly needed in Heaven, and is now a beautiful angel walking with the Lord.

    God Bless You Nicole, give my mama a kiss for me ♡

    My deepest sympathy. Got to know Nicole when she was a cashier at Sparkle. She invited us to her high school open house. She was liked a second daughter and she treated me like I was her dad. She one year sent me a beautiful father’s day card. Which i will never forget. Then I got to know her even more when she worked at Gv hospital. Was great to find her again. We kept in touch on Facebook and she would tell me I love you and the same for me. She will be missed. Always seems unfair losing someone so young. Rest in peace you beautiful angel. You will never be forgotten!!!. I love you!

    Nicole was the most loving and kind hearted people i ever met. She was always smiling and laughing and was always ready to give out a hug when needed most.
    She was a devoted mother. She showered her girls with love and always put them first.
    Her sense of humor was like no other. She could make anyone laugh and she could turn any moment into a fun time.
    She was the type of friend you could call at any time for any reason. She would always listen with her heart and make you feel like you really mattered.
    It is a devaststing loss. So many people will have a empy spot in their hearts with the passing of nicole.
    She was loved by so many , i hope she can see and realize how precious she was.
    My heart and prayers go out to her entire family.
    Nicole was a beauiful soul whose light was put out way too soon.

    My deepest heart felt sympathy goes out to Nicole’s family and loved ones. She was an amazing nurse. As a former Grove City Medical Center Nurse myself I can tell you she truly shined above them all. Her love of what she did was so evident in the way she cared for her patients. I first met Nicole in the Er as a patient myself just a couple days after losing my husband. Her kindness and compassion she showed me will never be forgotten. She truly was an angel on earth as I am sure she is in heaven now. May you find peace and comfort in knowing that she touched more lives than one could ever imagine. May you fly high beautiful Nicole and continue to be one of god”s angels now from heaven.

    I have no idea who she was but i see she was a wonderful person. In the medical field people often are there just because and not that they care. This lady was clearly special and I am very sorry for this to happen. Love to all.

    I knew Nicole from when she was a cashier at Sparkle Market. Always smiling and friendly. We always talked when we saw each other and always talked about her plans for becoming a Nurse. I will deeply miss her as she was a very special and very caring person. I’ll miss that warm smiike of hers. RIP Nicole. You were one of the best!

    Nicole made me feel like a member of a large and loving family when I first started working at Grove City Medical Center. She was the perfect nurse; one glance from her sparkling eyes and shining smile is all it took to start feeling better no matter how bad you were feeling. She was always professional, compassionate, funny and so driven to work harder for her patients and herself. Hers was the kind of soul that—if you are very, very lucky—you maybe only encounter once in a lifetime. I am proud to have known her and called her my friend. Be at peace now, Nurse Nick, and may God bless and watch over your babies forevermore.
