Lydia Lafonda Nichols


Lydia L. Nichols, age 25, of White Earth, Minnesota, passed away on Sunday, December 30, 2018, in White Earth, MN. under the care of Hospice of the Red River Valley in Northwestern Minnesota due to a chronic kidney disease.

Lydia was born on May 30, 1993 in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. She was a member of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe which is part of the Chippewa Tribe of Minnesota. She joined the Nichols family in 2008 and moved to Joplin in 2009. She graduated from Webb City High School in 2011. While living in the Webb City area, she attended Central United Methodist with her family.

A few years after graduation, she returned to Northwestern Minnesota to spend time with her other family members and friends from the region. She would venture back and forth between Joplin and Minnesota a few times before eventually settling in Minnesota for the final years of her life.
We will always remember Lydia's ability to bring laughter to those around her.

She is survived by her parents, Susan and Scott Nichols; nine brothers, Ethan, Zachary, Levi, Isaac, Lee, Logan, C.J., Preston, and Drew; and three sisters, Leta, Haley, and Loretta.
