Marian Ann Nickles

August 15, 1943 — May 22, 2021

Mern went to be with the Lord on Saturday May 22nd, 2021. She was 77 years and 9 months.

Born August 15, 1943. Mern had a son at age 24 and worked hard through her life to provide. Early in her career she was a bookkeeper for various CPA firms, she had Nickles Office Supply, and later managed several stores for the Fastop Chain in Oklahoma until she retired. Mern was a kind and loving person always there for anyone.

This wonderful mother, grandmother, and friend will be greatly missed. She is survived by son Terry, grandson Shelby, granddaughter Courtney, and lifelong friends Cindy McKnight, Kevin McKnight and wife Lisa, Guy McKnight and wife Sally, and many children and grandchildren of the McKnight family. Mern was preceded in death by her parents Francis and Eugene Ritchie, brother Jerry, lifelong friend Connie Minnick and husband Rick, and lifelong friend Virginia (Jenny) McKnight. The friendship between Mern, Jenny McKnight, and Cindy McKnight has been without parallel and an unbreakable bond. Jenny was survived by Mern for only a week.

May she rest in peace.
