Nicole Sharese “Nicky” Long was born July 21, 1979 in Chicago, Illinois to the union of Willie Long Jr. (deceased) and Diann Long; she was the youngest of their children.
In life, she worked in hospitality and lived as a music enthusiast, family comedian, gamer, Sou chef, care provider, and most of all – a great supporter. Where there was pain, she brought laughter. Where there was fear she brought reassurance and where there tears, she gave people a reason to smile. Nicky Long should be remembered as a compassionate, loving and gentle spirit who brought joy and laughter wherever she was present. Throughout her journey here on earth, she chose to serve many; in doing so, she has touched a multitude of people. No matter the task or sacrifice asked of her, she was always willing to go above and beyond. Nicky Long reached the highest level in the game of life on April 27, 2019 when she transitioned home to our heavenly father.
She is preceded in death by her father – Willie Long, Jr., her grandparents – Willie Long, Sr. and Lillian Long, William and Patsy Clark as well as several uncles and aunts.
She leaves to cherish her memory: her mother – Diann Long; her sister – Latricia (Cedrick); her brother – James (Chastity); her nieces & nephews – Jamie, Lanae (Rolland), Laelanny (Ronnie), Denisha, Johnathan, Caleb, Cameron, Lilyanna, and Rolland III; momma Pearl and a host of relatives and friends. She will forever be a major part of “La cosa notstra” .
She will be missed for her infectious laugh, her comic phrases, her “huggies” and “snookie-ukums”. We will never forget her night owl movies and late game nights with candy from a month ago; regardless of the activity you could always count on her to have a good time. Her passions included ports, video games, poll & billiards and breaking it down to great music. We will remember the fun midnight conversations and most importantly the very essence of her that made her amazing woman that we all knew and loved. She lives on in our hearts as being one of the most selfless and giving human beings that ever graced this earth.
