Rose Marie Nichelson HOWELLS - Rose Marie Nichelson (Bubby) of Howells, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2019 at CHI Health in Schuyler. She was born at home in Ashland on June 11, 1938 to Lassie and Dibrell Billings. She graduated from Ashland High School in 1956. She was married to Willard John Nichelson for 27 wonderful years. Rose grew up in Ashland where she worked for Churchill's Dress Shop, Sapp Brothers Dealership, and owned her own H&R Block. She had a talent for accounting and continued with that as her career throughout the years. Rose and Willard made their home in Nebraska, Washington state, Wyoming and Arkansas over the years. Rose was her family's prayer warrior. She was always the go-to for prayers, as they were sure she had a direct hotline to God. Whether it was lost car keys, a job interview or healing, she had it covered. Her life was devoted to her faith and family. She never met a stranger and touched all who were fortunate enough to know her. She enjoyed laughing with her family, traveling, sudoku puzzles, electronic solitaire and a good cup of hot chocolate. She was always a willing volunteer at church or for anyone in need.
