It is with Broken Hearts and profound sadness that we announce the passing of Nicole Lynn Russell at the young age of 49. Nicole passed peacefully surrounded by family while in the loving care of Gables Nursing Home on November 4, 2022.

Born in Labrador City, Nicole was the daughter of Marion (Squires) and the late Eugene "Geno" Selig. 

After leaving UCCB in Cape Breton and many great friends there in 1999, Nicole and Dion settled in Kitchener, Ontario where she loved being a Bridal Consultant at Tiffanys Bridal for 3 years. Eventually they both settled back near family and friends in Amherst Nova Scotia in 2003.

Nicole had a huge heart and even bigger smile that would light up any room. Her pride and joy was her son Nickolas. Nicole lived and loved to be a Goalie Mom first and foremost. Traveling to arenas to watch Nick on the ice while ringing her bell and cheering on the team with all the parents was her favorite thing to do. What ever Nick was into whether it be Hockey, soccer or baseball Nicole was his biggest fan. She also enjoyed summer camping trips, reading and Travel... and her Coffee lol.

Nicole will be deeply missed by her son Nickolas Russell and husband Dion Russell; her sisters Genny (Dave) Selig, Colleen Selig, Stacy MacDougall; brother Rodney Selig, sister in law Shoshanna (Derek) Stockwell; brother in law Douglas (Vanessa) Russell; mother in law Linda Brazil (Serge) Couture; father in law Derek (Norma) Russell; and nieces and nephews Sarah, Monica, Logan, the late Anthony, Ashley, Justin, Ellie and Sam, and Jacob, Robert and Sabrina. 

Nicole was predeceased by her father Eugene Selig and infant son Tyson Russell.

We would also like to extend our deepest thanks to the many nurses and staff at Gables Nursing Home for caring for Nicole over the last 5 years and becoming not only her friend by like Sisters to Nicole. She cherished each of you and we are all so grateful knowing you were there for her.
