  1. I knew Nikie from Round dancing and she was my room mate on several trips. I am sorry to hear of her passing, she was a Great Lady. Dorothy

  2. I’ll always remember Nikie’s warm smile and positive attitude. We in Women’s Fellowship at Manhattan Beach Community Church will miss her so much. What a class act she was, right up until the end of her productive, full life.

  3. Nikie was a very special lady. I feel so privileged to have known her through MBCC’s Women’s Fellowship. Three of us were blessed to (quoting Nikie) “take tea” with her the week before she passed away. She will be dearly missed by all who knew & loved her wonderful spirit. My deepest sympathy to the family.

  4. What a great gal! We really enjoyed her at MBCC. Always early, she was one of two who came to listen to the choir rehearse and I alway enjoyed greeting her before the service. And cards– she never forgot an anniversary or birthday, Remarkable woman whom we will miss a great deal. Glad she was a part of our life.

  5. I am writing this on behalf of my grandmother, Olive Pugh. Olive and Doris became friends in 1935, when they worked together in London. They remained friends despite the great divide of land and ocean, and corresponded regularly, Doris’s last letter to Olive actually arriving in the UK on the day she died. Olive wishes to send her deepest condolences and best wishes to Stacey and Chris. She loved Doris and will miss their letters. Both 91 years old and friends for over 75 years. Amazing xxx Sarah Hunt
