Alysia Nicole STRICKLAND

STRICKLAND , Alysia Nicole Alysia Nicole Strickland , daughter of Art and Diane, sister of Danielle and Ryan Strickland made her transition from this earthly plane on February 22, 2013. Nicole was a beautiful, fun, compassionate, independent and generous soul who touched the lives of every person whose path she crossed.
Nicole's many gifts included talents for art and creative writing, a keen intellect, and a love for people and dogs. She received her undergraduate degree in Religious Studies and was completing her master's degree in Architecture. Between her studies,
Nicole demonstrated her devotion to service through her social work with the Youth Opportunities program in Baltimore and her three trips to rebuild the Gulf Coast post Katrina. Nicole's nature was one of
inclusivity, never judging others, accepting all on their own terms as her friends. She will be greatly missed by her extended family, many friends and her loyal "girls" Marley and Widow.
