Mrs. Nicholson died Thursday, July 11, 2002 in Monroe, LA. She was the daughter of the late Beatrice Chambless and Johnny W. Lindsey. Mrs. Nicholson attended Ruston schools and was an employee of Delta Airlines in Atlanta prior to her marriage. Her husband, the late Billy Nicholson, was the Oldsmobile automobile dealer in Ruston. The onset of Multiple Sclerosis for Mrs. Nicholson was first diagnosed in 1960. It had reached a state of bed ridden confinement when her husband died in 1984. Since then, she had resided in the home of her late father and his wife Helen Madden Lindsey who was the dedicated and conscientious overseer of Margaret's care. Recently, when Helen's own health declined, Margaret was moved to Monroe to the home of her Aunt Bernice's son, John Hardeman Cordell, and his wife Susan Sherrouse Cordell. She is survived by her mother's two sisters, Bernice Chambless Woods of Monroe, and Agnes Chambless Miller of St. Joseph; Helen Madden Lindsey, wife of her late father; and a large number of cousins. Because of her long-time bout with Multiple Sclerosis, the family has requested that memorials be made to the Louisiana Chapter of Multiple Sclerosis Society, 3616 S. I-10 Service Road, Suite 101, Metairie, LA., 70001, or to the Rhoda L. Chambless Scholarship Fund at Louisiana Tech University, established in honor of Margaret's late grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Marion C. Chambless of Ruston; or to the charity of their choice.
