SKOWHEGAN - Evelyn Leora (Bagley) Nichols, 82, died Jan. 4, 2019 at a Skowhegan nursing home.

She was born Aug. 27, 1936 in Parkman, the daughter of Alphes and Myra (Getchell) Bagley.

She graduated from Piscataquis Community High School, class of 1954. She worked for many years at a metal manufacturing plant in Connecticut, but was her happiest when taking care of her children and grandchildren. Throughout the years, Evelyn enjoyed visiting with her family and friends, especially her roommate, Merlene. She relaxed by watching her favorite television shows and enjoyed listening to music of all genres, but held a special place in her heart for “Elvis”.

She was predeceased by her son, David Nichols; sister, Pluma Pike; brothers, Charles and Wayne Bagley; and her parents.

The family would like to thank the entire staff at Cedar Ridge Nursing Home in Skowhegan for their many years of exceptional care and dedication to Evelyn “Evy”. A special thank you to Beacon Hospice for keeping our mom comfortable until she journeyed to The Lord.

A graveside service will be held in the spring of 2019 at the convenience of the family.
