Marjorie E. Nichols, 88, passed away October 17, 2020, at Dove Healthcare, Bloomer WI. Her family, healthcare staff, and St. Croix Hospice were by her side, telling her she was loved and it was okay to go.

Marge was born on April 5, 1932, to Gerald and Margaret Fry, younger sister to Loujean. Marge married Chuck Nichols in 1948. She lived in Hebron, IN; Wanatah, IN; Rockford, IL; and Chippewa Falls, WI, before moving to Maplewood (Dove) Healthcare in Bloomer, WI, in 2011. The staff became part of her loving family, showering her with excellent care, hourly smiles, and many hugs. In Chippewa Falls she was an active member of First Presbyterian Church, and was the librarian there for many years. Marge worked as the Assistant Children’s Librarian in Chippewa Falls, creating special and creative story times for years for children who knew her simply as the magical Marge. Over the years she “adopted” numerous children who called her Grandma Marge, and she never failed to remember their birthdays with a card. For her five grandchildren, her love, nurturing, and creativity were constant. The last 20 years of her life were difficult with health issues and declining cognitive abilities. However, her sparkle never dimmed.

Marge is survived by her daughter Jerilynn (Carl) Lijewski of Cumberland, WI; daughter-in-law Patricia Nichols of Roscoe, IL; grandchildren Brady (Michele) Miller, Patrick (Sarah) Sweeney, Ellen Sweeney, Peter (Katie) Sweeney, and Benjamin (Ashley) Nichols; great-grandchildren Andrea, Audrey, Ava, Mason, Benjamin, Addison, and Jackson; great-great-granddaughter Navy Jo; niece Luann Roseberry and nephew Richard Cheever.

Marge was preceded in death by her parents, husband Chuck Nichols, sister Loujean Cheever, daughter Sandra J. Miller, and son Curtis C. Nichols.

No service will be held at this time. Olson Funeral Home in Bloomer, WI, is serving the family with cremation. The family would like to extend their very sincere gratitude to the Dove family for their excellent care and support, as well as the caring members of St. Croix Hospice. Donations to the Dove Bloomer Residents Fund in the memory of Marjorie Nichols would be greatly appreciated. Online condolences may be expressed at

Everyone loved Marge! I had the privilege of working with her at the Chippewa Falls Public Library many years ago. She was always upbeat, always smiling and never lost her sense of humor. My sincere sympathy to Marge's family. Heaven gained another angel.

Our family feels saddened to hear about Marg. She was so very sweet and nice to my children, especially Ben and Gabby who proudly called her Grandma Marg when we visited the CF library. She always saved a “special” book for them and had them sit on her lap while she read it to them. Ben made a picture of Corderoy the bear that she framed and hung in the children’s section....he was very proud !! God bless Marg !!
