Yvette Nicholson was born June 15, 1963, to her parents Carolyn Nicholson & Arthur Nicholson (deceased) in Harlem, New York City.
Yvette accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior and was baptized. She loved the Lord and was always giving his name the praise.
Yvette began her early childhood educational journey at Saint Charles Catholic School, Harlem, where she met life-long friends. Yvette later attended and graduated from Glencliff High School, Nashville, Tennessee. After high school, she later went on to take many courses in health care. Yvette was a passionate person who enjoyed helping people. Yvette applied her passion for helping others and her healthcare skills to all the patients she cared for while working as a home health aide. Eventually, Yvette’s hard work was acknowledged and rewarded with a promotion to an abuse counselor.
Yvette chose many different avenues in her life. Simply put, she did it HER WAY.
Yvette was a creative spirit that had a zest for life. From her sense of style to her larger-than-life personality, she always looked for the spotlight and was always ready to have a good time. An entertainer at heart, she would always have a song and dance or a joke to make you laugh or smile. She loved spending time with her family reminiscing about her childhood. Telling stories about all the adventures she had with her cousins on Seventh Ave.
Yvette believed life is to be lived to the fullest and expected everyone around her to do the same. Although small in stature, Yvette could fill a room with her presence. Yvette’s comedic wit, sarcasm, and big personality made those around her laugh.
Most of all, Yvette loved her family; nothing made her happier than spending time with her children, introducing them to all her favorite old movies, musicals, and tv shows. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her granddaughters, they captured her heart, and she just had to surrender to their love. The unbreakable bond Arian and Ariah shared with their “Boopsie” was evident and gave Yvette renewed purpose and endless joy.
On April 28, 2021, Yvette earned her wings and transitioned to eternal rest and peace.
