Graveside services for Beverly Lynn Nichols Nesbitt, 79, of Kilgore will be 11:00 a.m., Thursday, August 9, 2018 at Pirtle Cemetery with Reverend David Hampton officiating. Ms. Nesbitt went to be with her Lord and Savior Monday, August 6, 2018.

Beverly was born April 9, 1939 in Atlanta, Texas to Jack H. and Sarah Opal Hart Nichols. She worked as a caretaker for the elderly. Beverly loved the Lord with all her heart. Opal, Beverly’s mother, made considerable sacrifices, so that Beverly could take dancing lessons. For ten years, Beverly took dancing lessons from Denard Hayden. Mr. Hayden was also choreographer for Gussie Nell Davis and the Kilgore Rangerettes. In 1955 two of Ms. Davis’s Rangerettes decided to get married and she needed two girls with some dancing talent to take their place. Ms. Davis asked Mr. Hayden if he could recommend two girls. That is how Beverly became a Rangerette even though she was still in Kilgore High School. Beverly’s six kids were her priority. She never seemed to talk about anything but her kids. Beverly was a loving Mother and Grandma, she will be missed tremendously by all who knew and loved her.

She is survived by her son, Eddie Erickson of Huffman; daughters, Kay Erickson of Hockley, Mendy Vickers of Tyler, and Christene Owens-Martinez of Hawkins; 14 grandchildren; 16 great grandchildren; 2 great-great grandchildren; brother, Brent Nichols of Plano; and several other family members and friends who loved her dearly.

Beverly was preceded in death by her parents; and two children, Jolee Erickson and Troy Erickson.
