Dorothy Nicholson Obituary

Dorothy Nicolson passed away peacefully on February 11, 2024.

Born on December 22, 1919, she lived to be 104 years old, spending her lifetime as a resident of Humboldt County. She grew up living in Trinidad, with her parents, Arabella, and Edwin Erickson, and her sisters Mary, Bernice, and June.

Dorothy married Edward Nicholson, on January 1, 1938, and they made Eureka their home for over 60 years. While Ed served his country during the war, Dorothy went to work for Chicago Bridge and Iron. Years later she graduated from business college and worked for the Humboldt County Probation Department for 23 years.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Ed and Arabella Erickson, husband Edward Nicholson, sisters Mary Robertson, Bernice Riley, June Orlandi, and niece Joyce Miranda. She is survived by several nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.

The family wishes to thank the staff and management at McKinleyville Timber Ridge for their kindness and support of Dorothy during her residency. She celebrated her 104th birthday with the residents, staff, friends, and family.

The family would like to thank the entire medical and nursing staff at Mad River Hospital for their compassionate care.

Per her wishes, Paul’s Chapel did not perform a service but took care of the arrangements for her interment. She was laid to rest at Ocean View Cemetery next to her departed husband.
