Obituary of Muriel Nickerson
In Loving Memory
Muriel Lorraine Nickerson (nee: Preston) passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of September 30, 2021, at the Delhi Long Term Care Centre, in her 88th year. Muriel was predeceased by her husband, Alvin, in 1990. The last sibling of the Preston family, Muriel will be missed by her four children (Cheryl, Melanie, Darren & Dawn) and their spouses, 20 grandchildren and 34 great-grandchildren. Her legacy was her faith in Jesus Christ; Mom loved the Lord and trusted in Him to get her from earth to heaven in His time. While her battle with dementia was often trying, she remained strong in believing the truth of the Bible that “Absent from the body is present with the Lord!” And now, she’s seen Him, face to face, in all His glory!
