Judy's Story

Text size

Judy M. Nichols, 64, of Hugh Heron Road, Saranac, died Friday, Aug. 18, 2017, at the UVM Health Network, CVPH, Plattsburgh, with her loving family and close friends by her side.
She was born in Plattsburgh, July 5, 1953, the daughter of Elmer and Mae (Doner) Ormsby.
Judy's best times were those spent with family and friends. She thoroughly enjoyed Friday night "deck nights" on Lake Champlain, traveling on yearly trips to the Caribbean, cooking for ANY occasion and especially spending time with her "little man," Dristen.
One of Judy's strongest attributes was her dedication to her job. She will always be remembered for her 24 years of exemplary service to the students and staff at Saranac High School. She made Saranac a better place and we are all better for having worked with her and having spent time with her. She leaves a hole that will never be completely filled.
Left to cherish the memory of Judy is her loving husband of 44 years, Randy Nichols; daughters, Angela Nichols and Cristina and husband Robbie Bordeau; granddaughters, Anissa and Brandi LaVarnway and Bonnie Shinn; and one great-grandson, Dristen Wood. She is also survived by her sisters, Helen Durgan, Mary Ryan and Loretta Paynter. Additionally, Judy is survived by her mother-in-law, Mary Nichols; her brother-in-law, Keith Nichols and wife Evelyn; and her sister-in-law, Kathy Nichols.
In addition to her parents, Judy was predeceased by her sister, Carrie Riley.
Relatives and friends are invited to call from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 23, at the Hamilton Funeral Home, 294 Mannix Road, Peru. A Memorial Service will be held in the Hamilton Funeral Home Chapel at 7 p.m.
