(Age 35)

Nicole Patricia Campbell (35) formerly of Pullman, Washington whom everyone considered a kind, caring earth angel and dear friend, tragically passed away in New York City in the early hours of August 14th. Her heart stopped and we do not yet know why.

Nicole was born on June 28, 1982, in Spokane. Seven weeks premature, she just couldn't wait to be held by her loving mother Patricia Mary Beaudoin Campbell and her father R. Keith Campbell.

The hundreds of postings on Facebook all say similar things about Nicole. She had a lust for life; cared for everyone she befriended; was the life of every party; was so funny that she should have been a comedienne; never met a stranger; wise beyond her years; a fantastic counselor and listener; super smart; an idea person; possessed multiple talents as well as being a beauty product expert; a great sales person; computer app developer; networking genius; loved her mother like no other mother has ever been loved; a daddy's girl; a beloved wife, sister, aunt, granddaughter, niece, cousin, sister-in-law and daughter-in-law.

Nicole was an honor graduate of Pullman High School, and a proud honors graduate of the University of Southern California although she was always a Wazzu Cougar at heart. She excelled at everything that she tried. She minored in cinema and had a love of movies and actors. Living in Hollywood was exciting and she enjoyed the occasional celebrity sighting. Nicole loved travelling, caring for her dog Gigi, and finding forever homes for rescue dogs. She enjoyed travels to fun places and especially trips with her mom and dad to London, Paris, Beaver Creek, Hawaii and nearly every major city and resort in America. She enjoyed the family Coeur d'Alene Lake home, LA, Seattle, San Francisco and especially NYC. Nicole could not wait for the next adventure, just like her late grandmother Mildred Campbell. She had a glow about her that made others feel like they were the most important person in the world. She touched so many lives in a deeply meaningful way. She will always be remembered as one of a kind.

We are all simply devastated and in shock. Our only comfort during this nightmare is that she is now in the loving arms of her mother Pat who also left us way too soon. Nicole is survived by husband Frankie Frears; dad R. Keith Campbell; grandparents Don and Pat Beaudoin; loving brother Lance Campbell; adored sister Kimberlee Campbell (Jim Pappas); niece Ava; nephews Marcus and Mason; aunts and uncles Ron Campbell (Judi), Bruce Beaudoin (Kathy) Pam Espinosa (Henry), Michele Goedert (Brian) and Don Beaudoin Jr.; in-laws Anne Rothenstein, Stephen Frears, Lola Frears, as well as numerous beloved cousins. She was preceded in death by her mother Patricia in 2007 and her fraternal grandparents.

Celebrations of life are planned for Pullman, Washington on Sunday, October 1, 2017 from 2 to 4:30 PM at Banyans on the Ridge Pavilion, in Redding, CA with her Beaudoin family on Saturday, September 2, 2017 at 11 AM at Sacred Heart Church in Anderson, CA, and in Los Angeles with her husband and many friends there on September 23, 2017 at 11 AM at Westwood Memorial Village where her favorite celebrity, Marilyn Monroe, was honored.
