Helen E. McNichols, 93

Helen E. (Pedersen) McNichols, 93, died Monday, February 11, 2013, at Memorial Community Hospital in Blair.

Helen Elizabeth Pedersen was born September 7, 1919, in Omaha to Dr. Andrew M. Pedersen and Anna S. (Hansen) Pedersen.

The family lived in several mid-western towns during the 1920s before settling in Blair.

She attended high school in Irwin, Iowa, and then Blair High School. She attended Dana College and the Immanuel Hospital School of Nursing in Omaha. She worked at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Md., Immanuel Hospital in Omaha and Memorial Community Hospital in Blair.

On April 19, 1947, she married Jack E. McNichols at First Lutheran Church in Blair.

Mrs. McNichols was always described as a "whirlwind," working full time, raising four children and participating in several organizations. Her family found that they needed to give her an answering machine to even have a chance to "catch her" or have her know they tried.

She is survived by children, grandchildren and gret-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Jack in 1964; son, Gerald Eugene; brother, Paul; sister, Inga; and son-in-law, Ted Brown.
