In Memoriam: Longtime Fair Havenite, Flossy Nicol, 89

Her passing leaves a void that can never be filled, but her legacy of love and strength will forever endure.” ~ family of Flossy Nicol

Longtime Fair Havenite, Flossy Nicol, passed away on Sept. 4. She was 89.

Born in Brooklyn in 1934, she moved to Fair Haven in time to start a three-generation legacy at Red Bank Catholic High School. “Flossy found the love of her life in Charlie at an RBC football game and the rest is history.”

“Family was the cornerstone of her existence, and her roles as daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother were ones she cherished with boundless devotion. Her nurturing spirit created a haven of love and warmth for all who were fortunate enough to know her. Her home was a sanctuary, filled with love and music, where she shared the wisdom and stories that shaped our family’s history. Flossy’s laughter was infectious, and her smile could light up the darkest of days.

“She possessed a remarkable ability to comfort and console, offering sage advice and unwavering support when needed most. A trademark Flossy hug was a source of solace, a reminder that in her arms, all troubles would be eased.

” As we bid farewell to Flossy, we remember the lessons she imparted and the words she invented. Her legacy is not only in the photographs and heirlooms she leaves behind but in the love she shared, the strength she embodied, and the values she instilled.
Rest in eternal peace, dear Flossy. Your memory will forever be etched in our hearts, and your spirit will guide us through the journey of life.
