  • Be sure to include pertinent details such as dates, places, shared experiences, as well as how she impacted your life
  • Handwritten notes add a more personal touch but need to be legible…otherwise it might be best to type it out

Nichole's Obituary

This is what will go into the Los Angeles Daily News tomorrow and Thursday...

1976 - 2009

Nichole Bernadette Greene devoted her life to serving and following her Lord and King, Jesus Christ. She died Saturday, Nov. 7, 2009 at Tarzana Regional Hospital after battling cervical cancer for more than a year and a half. She was 33.

Born and raised in Sherman Oaks, Nichole was a devoted, loving wife and mother, who served the Lord and was a witness to His power of forgiveness until the moment she went to be with her Savior. She loved supporting missionaries, enjoyed swimming and anything having to do with Italy. But most of all Nichole cherished the fact that she fulfilled her lifelong dream of being a wife and mother.

Nichole is survived by her husband, Norm, and four children, Ansel, 7, Noah, 6, Josephine, 5, Levi, 2, her mother Virginia and father Serge.

A memorial service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Friday at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley. The service will be broadcast live on the Web at

Her favorite passage in scripture was Hebrews 11:1-3
"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the men of old gained approval. By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible."

Norm and her family are praising the Lord for her endless joy and for all those who came alongside her during her struggle.

To Norm

Going to church this morning, I was reminded of God's care and compassion for us. He's given us a great gift to us in His Church. I know that there are many people (including me) even now praying about how they can care for you and your family in the future. Please allow God to show His care and concern for you through the service of His people.

Praise the Lord for His perfect ways. Norm was right there with Nichole this morning as she came into the presence of Jesus
Dear friends and family -

Our precious Nichole is now in the presence of her Savior - rejoicing, pain free, in His glorious company. She has left a legacy of lovingkindness towards those who know her and an example of faithfulness towards her King whom she trusted and served with all her heart, might and strength...even in the midst of intense suffering. Let us remember and praise God for the work her Father in Heaven wrought out in her, by the power of His Spirit and give thanks for the testimony she left behind.

Please remember to pray for her family while they mourn the loss of their precious loved one.

All glory, honor and praise be to God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who has always, and perfectly, been her faithful Comforter...
with love from her friend,

The Sweet Greene Family

I just love looking at these sweet faces. These are pictures I took of the family around a year ago. I just wanted to remind us all to keep praying for them as they face this most difficult season of their lives.
