Jordan A. Nichols Obituary, Death – Jordan Allison Nichols, 20, passed away at Toledo Hospital late on August 27, 2023, due to complications from an appendectomy. She is survived by her parents, Eric and Marianne Nichols, her brothers, Kale and Braden, as well as her large extended family and close friends. Jordan was born in Columbus, Ohio on April 29, 2003, but she has lived in Bowling Green for the past 14 years. She attended St. Aloysius for elementary and middle school, followed by Notre Dame Academy for high school, before enrolling at BGSU for the past two years.
She was an exceptionally talented and diligent student on the dean’s list who is studying to become an intervention specialist. She was so eager to assist those who might have otherwise been left behind because her compassion and patience enabled her to see potential in everyone. Jordan was extraordinarily imaginative and artistic. She had been playing the piano since she was a child, and although she usually performed classical music at her concerts, her preferred genre was ragtime, which complemented her personality much better. She enjoyed drawing, knitting, and painting miniature rocks and figurines for her mother’s garden.
She was a proficient creative writer who enjoyed writing poetry primarily for herself. Similar to herself, the work she did share could be gorgeous, intelligent, nuanced, chaotic at times, and extremely humorous. She played soccer for the majority of her life and golf in high school. She appreciated sports, but she cherished her teammates even more. Her close circle of friends always found her to be encouraging, and they revered and valued her unique perspective and perspective. She enjoyed going thrift shopping and watching terrible movies and television with them.
She enjoyed the character and allure of the ancient world and visited Europe on multiple occasions, seeing Paris with her grandmother, southern Europe with her friends, and most recently the Icelandic landscape with her father. She found solace in nature, especially in the tranquility of the Appalachian Mountains and the coziness of her grandparents’ lake home in Tennessee. She was protective and maternal toward her pets: Juan Pablo the chihuahua, her spirit animal who died before her earlier this year, and Milo the Pitbull cross, her new baby whom she and her roommates rescued this year.
She was even more protective of her younger sibling, and she enjoyed sneaking him out of the house to consume junk food. She realized her potential as a teacher because of her patience and comprehension with him. In contrast to the majority of people, she did not avoid or tolerate injustice or sadness in the world when she observed them. She took action to make the world a better place by volunteering in the community, learning American Sign Language to communicate with those who are neglected, and working with children whom others would not have given a chance.
Jordan was sentimental and disorganized, surprisingly courageous and tough, and possessed an infectious chuckle. She had her own objectives and standards, and she was always the individual she desired to be. She endured numerous obstacles in her life and suffered from generalized anxiety disorder, but she never let these obstacles prevent her from finding pleasure. She was so encouraging of her siblings in all their endeavors. She was her mother’s closest companion, and they spoke daily. She brought out the best in her father and improved his character.
