Everyone who knew Nicey well would say she had a generous heart and would give her last to help someone else.

When she wasn’t caring for others in her home, she served as a volunteer at Palmer Elementary School. Nicey nurtured and assisted people from her heart based on their needs not on their appearances.
Besides her children and her newborn granddaughter, the loves of Nicey’s life consisted of eating ice, watching Law and Order, and Ghost Whisperers. She also enjoyed spending time with her siblings; especially the visits to Locust Grove Virginia, which allowed her tospend special time with her oldest sister and brother-in-law, Belinda and Alvin Macklin.
