I just read of Lynn's passing in the U of R School of Nursing alum publication. Lynn was my classmate in the University of Rochester doctoral program. Lynn had a wonderful sense of humor coupled with compassion. Her insights were spot on and always appreciated. I am saddened by her loss. May her candle burn brightly for her loved ones, friends, and for all whose lives she touched in her kind and caring way.
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your sister. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family. She was a great Lady.
I'm so saddened by Lynn's passing. I couldn't have seen my research project through without her! She always asked the difficult questions and exhibited colossal patience!
My deepest condolences to Dr Nichols' family. Dr Nichols was an instructor of mine when I was a student of nursing at SUNY Plattsburgh, Class of 1987. I heard of her passing and wanted to express my heartfelt sympathy. May the memories you hold of her help you through this difficult time.

My most sincere and deepest sympathy go out to her entire family as you go through this tough time. May you find strength within each other at this difficult time. My prayers are with you.
I was fortunate to have Lynn Nichols as a professor at SUNY Plattsburgh, class of 1978. She was an inspirational teacher. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
At first Lynn was my Pharmacology professor and my boyfriends mother. What she became, and remained for 23 years, is my beloved Mother-in-law, friend and wonderful Grandmother to my children. Thank You Mother Nichols! We love you!
Lynn's Family -
As a classmate of Lynn's Bloomfield Class of 1957, I think back of Lynn as the smart and resourceful student who could always be counted on to do her share of class tasks.
I am sorry for your loss, and hope that fond memories will keep her alive in your hearts and minds.
So sorry to hear of the loss of Lynn. She was a very special person and will be missed by many. John, Thedra, Olivia and Amelia we will keep you in our prayers and hope that many happy memories will help with your pain now.
The Eads Family
We are all so fortunate for your memories of Lynn. Thank you all for sharing! When I saw her referred to as "Doc," I remembered that I would call her with my Bugs Bunny voice and say "What's up, Doc?" when she answered the phone, just so her head wouldn't get too large! She was my big sister after all. I was so proud of the first doctor in our family and Lynn was a wonderful role model for me. And that started early: here I am with her at her Syracuse graduation in 1962. (Thanks, Laurel, for recording this moment in time.)
I am privileged to have known Dr. Nichols as a friend and colleage. I will miss her more than ever. Donna Tydings
I'm so sorry to hear of your passing my Friend. You were always an inspiration to me. I so admired your dedication, perseverance, compassion, love for and care of your family, and excellent high standards for yourself and your work. You will be missed. Sending love and sympathy to your family.
Doc Nichols I will remember you with great fondness. You ignited my interest in research and being a lifelong learner. You were a unique individual in a plain vanilla world and touched so many along the way. Rest easy professor after a job well done!
Doc Nichols you will fondly be remembered by me as the one who made research interesting and doable. Always unique in our boring culture of sameness, you touched more lives than you knew. Rest easy professor!
She was the strongest woman I ever met. The Rock of my life and many other people's lives including my children. The best grandmother/mother I could have ever asked for. It is with the strength that she has instilled in me that I will be able to make it through this tough time. I love you forever
One of the best women I have ever met, kind and dedicated. I owe her so much everything she has done for my son and me. Jadiel and me are going to miss you so much grandma we love you with all of our hearts. You have always been an angel.
Dr Nichols was a brilliant woman. Her family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Lynn was a gifted and meticulous researcher who worked with me on several medical device clinical trials while she was a doctoral student. Always tuned in to patients' and families' needs, Lynn was a credit to the nursing profession. Her quiet grace will be missed.
I have known her since I was about 11 years old and she never stopped giving of herself to others. Such a calm and caring woman. She will be missed
I fondly remember Lynn as a doctoral student at the University of Rochester School of Nursing where I served on her dissertation committee. She was intensely committed to the care of patients and how in health care we could serve them better. The picture you have chosen is excellent, demonstrating her kindness and quiet grace. She will be missed.
