Joan Whidden Nichols
January 18, 1934 – May 14, 2020

On May 14, 2020, Joan Nichols passed away peacefully at age 86 surrounded by her family at her daughter’s home in Boxboro.

Born on January 18, 1934 in Waltham, she was the daughter of Donald and Edna Whidden. Joan and her husband, Creighton, raised their family in Framingham. She was a devoted member of the Plymouth Congregational Church and cherished all her friendships and years of service.

Joan is survived by her loving husband, Creighton Rice Nichols, her three daughters and their husbands, Suzanne and Edward Cunningham of Berlin, MA, Deborah and Frank Cappucci of Spring Hill, FL, Jennifer and Walker Royce of Boxboro, MA, and her three grandsons, Edward III, Colin and Brian.

A private funeral service was held on May 17th. Given the current virus circumstances, a Celebration of Life will be scheduled at a future date.

Dear Creighton, I am very sad to learn that we've lost Joan. She was a wonderful friend and a great square dancer. We have missed both of you at the Fairs 'n Squares since you were no longer able to dance. Joan had an unforgettable smile and a warm and welcoming personality that made it fun to be around her.
Your Fairs 'n Squares classmate, Glenn Ickler
