Born March 24, 1990 to Wade and Julie Nichols, Sara introduced the world to a smile that could warm an iceberg. Growing up, Saira enjoyed everything that the outdoors had to offer. She loved to camp, hunt, and fish with her dad. Saira had no problem getting her hands dirty, and this was displayed during hours of joining dad at work. If she wasn't eating all the lunch or taking a nap, Saira would collect rocks and even climb up on the Cat and help dad skid logs. No matter what the day had for Saira, she would simply bring her smile and she was ready. As she got older, Saira developed a toughness and competitive spirit that she could use playing softball and soccer. She was not afraid to fail, because she always thought she could win. Saira loved all dogs, especially her favorite, Doobie. She enjoyed the company of other children, and through everything that Saira went through, she never stopped being daddy's little girl with the smile that could melt an iceberg.
She was preceded in death by her mother Julie Nichols, and her grandfather Jerry Anderson.
Survivors include father, Wade Nichols; step-father, Michael Brown; great-grandmother, Ethel Doyle; grandmothers, Dixie Nichols and Margie Christian; step-grandfather, Kirk Bay; sisters, Christine Leischner and Mollie Nichols; aunts, Nancy Colchico, Jody Anderson, Lori Poff, and Jill Hedstrom; uncles, Scott Anderson and Casey Mayfield; niece, Aiden Rosales, and numerous cousins including Madison Mayfield.
The family previously held a private celebration of life and would like to thank everyone for the love and support.
"We will always love you Sair-Bear."
