Carolyn Quinn Nichols
AIKEN, SC - Carolyn Quinn Nichols passed away peacefully at her home in Aiken, SC, surrounded by loved ones, on Wednesday, September 8, 2016.
Mrs. Nichols was born May 8, 1950, in Union, SC, the second daughter born to James Edward Quinn and Joyce Sizemore Quinn. She is survived by her loving husband of 48 years, Curtis Nichols; daughter Jeannie Nichols Hixon (Doug) of North Augusta, SC; son Michael Nichols; sisters Susan Quinn Sand and Jo Ann Quinn; brother Mitch Quinn; grandson Jacob Day and his wife Lauren, in Okinawa; granddaughter Brooke Day, in North Augusta, SC, and numerous loved in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews. She also leaves behind beloved co-worker friends from her career at the Savannah River Site, and her classmate friends from Aiken High School Class of 1968.
Carolyn was loved world-wide by her friends in the "Elvis family" - who met frequently to support Elvis Tribute Artists at various festivals and honor the life and music of Elvis Presley. At these events, she was always watching for someone who might be alone there, or in need of inclusion - and then she made them part of the family. She did everything she could to support her friends who were ETAs. She will never be forgotten, and will now always have the best seat in the house!
A celebration of Carolyn's life will be held Sunday, Sept 11 at 3:00 PM, at Shellhouse-Rivers Funeral Home. Visitation will be before the service at the funeral home beginning at 2:00 PM. Inurnment will follow in the Bethany Cemetery Columbarium.
