1971 - 2014 PITTSFIELD Nichole Glenn, 42, of Kensington, Md., passed away, surrounded by family, on Monday, March 24, 2014. Born on Dec. 31, 1971, she was the daughter of Daniel Glenn and Susan and Dennis McCauley. She attended Pittsfield and Taconic High Schools during her time in the Berkshires. Nichole loved her work as a Senior Organizational Development Specialist at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Those who knew her marveled at her sharp wit, incredible grace, dazzling warmth and undeniable charm. Passionate about learning, travel, and most always the best dressed in any room she entered, Nichole also enjoyed quiet time with her beloved furry friend, Captain Laptime. She had many close friends and was proud to be considered a part of their families. In Ric Bardwell, she found a partner who stole her heart, challenged her, and encouraged the glow within her to shine even brighter. She is also survived by her sisters, Dominica Bernardo D'Avella and her husband, Michael, Cara Bernardo Roberts and her husband, Jason, Amanda Glenn, and niece, Gianna Fosty. She will be sorely missed on earth, though her spirit will live on as those who knew and loved her carry on her kindness to others. FUNERAL NOTICE: A celebration of Nichole's life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in care of her sister, Dominica D'Avella, to start a fund for the work Nichole had planned to do addressing some of the gaps that cancer patients and their families face.
