Nichole was born on April 30, 1982 in Mesa, Arizona to Gina Lynn Moraga and Mark Vincent McVicker. She lived in Queen Creek, Arizona for almost 10 years. She is the oldest of 4 children and is survived by her siblings, Janna Michelle Wall, Queen Creek, Arizona; Garrett Wesley McVicker, Rushford, Minnesota; and Mark Tanner McVicker, Loveland, Colorado, as well as 11 nieces and nephews, to whom she was endearingly known as “Auntie Boo-Boo”.
Nichole graduated from Gilbert High School in 2000 and attended the University of Arizona and Arizona State University. She worked at Banner Desert Hospital for 15 years, primarily as Manager of the Patient Placement office.
Nichole had the deepest blue eyes and a flair for bling. She was considered by some to be “boujie”, but we knew her to be just beautiful….inside and out. She loved babies and puppies. Although she was never married and had no children, Nichole was an amazing Aunt who always made time for their school and sporting events. She was their biggest sideline cheerleader. Much like her Aunt Lori did with her, she was always about the special moments and spoiling her nieces and nephews. She had a child-like sense of humor and could laugh at everyone but herself.
Nichole loved to cook and considered herself to be a “foodie”. She was capable of pulling off a whole holiday dinner for 15-20 people by the time she was 21 years old. It was one of the ways she shared her love and support of others. Well, that and the sweet and sour gummy worms she always had in her purse to share with the kids!
She was a dog lover and had a Shih-Tzu named Coco Channel for 13 years and who passed before her in 2019. She also owned a Lab-Pit mix who she called “Mr. Carter” and who passed at the age of 5 months. Presently she is survived by a Viszla/English Pointer mix she has named Bella Baby.
The McVicker Family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at Chandler Regional Hospital for their dedication, compassion and human kindness in providing the highest level of care during Nichole’s illness.
We also thank the dedicated staff at Hospice of the Valley for guiding us through our very difficult journey and consoling us through our grief. We encourage all who are so moved to make donations to this non-profit organization at www.hov.com in memory of Nichole.
The McVicker Family thanks the family, friends and total strangers who have sent their thoughts, prayers and love to Nichole and our family during this time.
