We have lost our dearest Nicole. She left us on March 8, 2017 in an unfortunate and violent car accident. However, we are here to celebrate her life and her lasting impression on all of us. She was a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, granddaughter, aunt, cousin, family member, and if you were lucky - friend.

Nicky (also Nikki), the daughter of Thomas Murray and Risa Murray-Miller, was born in San Diego, California, March 20, 1970.

There should be no surprise that even as an infant Nicky was active, talkative, and determined. She walked and talked earlier than most. She was an adorable toddler and well-behaved (most times). She was a free spirit with an adventurous soul. Even at a young age, she shared her experiences and passionate comedy that would have you on the floor falling over with laughter. She enjoyed plays, amusement parks, skating, traveling and ballet.

As a young student in Pennsylvania/Ohio, she was accomplished in most areas of study. She enjoyed her exposures to dance, flute, violin, ceramics, science fairs, and many other subjects.

She was prideful of being an award winning swim team-mate with Mifflin Middle School, Ohio. Nicole is the 3rd generation and 6th of the Miller clan to graduate from East High School. She graduated in 1988 against all odds with her infant son Stephon. There is a brick on the premise with her name for posterity.

For a while, she worked the typical job options for young folk. Her first real job exitement was with The Limited (LBrands). She was awarded by Les Wexner, CEO, for her achievement in preventing property loss for the department. This widened her horizons, reflecting on her abilities.

Educationally, she became proficient with paralegal services and was wooed by several law firms.

Having met the love of her life, Nicky deferred into being a long-term military wife and raising a family. Her husband, two sons and daughter (and two dogs) made sure the house and her life was filled with love.

Nicky had a compassion that some may not know about. She was tough, sensitive, protective, and would cry in-a-heartbeat over a sappy movie or over the plight of the downtrodden. She helped to mentor young single mothers and challenged them to achieve beyond their circumstances, protected others from bullying, and guided many through their life challenges.

Pets. Oh the pets! Nicky loved animals for this same reason and often rescued animals or created a nurturing environment. Whether it be rabbit, dog, turtle, or bird… you were taken care of in her presence.

As the wife of a veteran soldier and mother of growing children, she worked hard to support the family in many selfless, patient and invaluable ways. We laugh that she was the cook, the butler, janitor, counselor, bill payer, referee, snuggler, hugger, go get em, coach, cheerleader, motivator, designer, fashion consultant, doctor, travel agent, worrier, stay up all night waiting on a call from Iraq-er and much more.

She left behind many friends, husband Lovell, son Stephon, son Malin, daughter Nareese, grandson Camden, grandfather William (Bill) F. Miller, mother Risa Miller, father Thomas Murray, brother William Alston, brother Thomas Murray Jr. and sister Tia Murray who all remember greatly how much she contributed to the world.

We all stand united with her husband when he says: "She was my everything, my soulmate, my awesome, the nucleus of our family. We had 24 wonderful years together and 20 years married with great children. Life will never be the same, but I am happy to have shared life with her.”


Flowers are always such a lovely expression of condolences.
