Nichols, Donia Mae (nee Caldwell), age 87, of Merrillville, Indiana, formerly of Troy, Ohio, went to Heaven on Monday, September 16, 2019.
She is survived by her children: Michael (Liz) Nichols, Kathy (Dave) Ratchford, and David “Dusty” (Dorothy) Nichols; her 10 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews; her brother, Larry (Betty) Caldwell; and her sister-in-law, Margie Clevenger. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jack Nichols in 2010; her parents: Ira and Julia Caldwell; and her brothers: Harold Caldwell and Kenneth Caldwell.
Donia loved to ride motorcycles with her husband. She was a true die-hard Ohio Buckeye Fan and if it was game day, just expect Donia to be a spectator in front of the TV! In her spare time, she loved to do crafts for her family and friends.
