For those of us who knew and loved Nicole, we will always cherish her laughter, humor, zest for life, caring nature as well as her brilliant creativity. Nicole was not one to tip toe into a room. When she made an entrance it was like a burst of glittery confetti followed by an indescribable pure laughter and from behind all of that was our truly beautiful Nicole. We may never understand why our time with her was so limited but that she is at rest with our heavenly father. She is survived by Mother, Lisa Parton; Father, Mark Elliott; Sisters, Shannon Kate Elliott, Rebecca Sparks; Grandparents, Wayne Elliott and Betty Elliott; Aunt, Susan Machewka; Uncle, Brian Parton.
