Patricia Eileen Brooks Nichols, 70, of Red Level, died Wed., April 11, 2012, at her residence.

The family would like to thank all the wonderful people who were there for her in so many ways, and a very special thank you goes to Doc and Cindy Oglesby and Elaine Oglesby Jennings, who have been like family.
