Nichole “Nikki” Diane Hreben-Smith

March 24, 1982-October 24, 2022

Nichole left this earth too soon. She was 40 years old, and her death was unexpected. She died in her home in Walbridge.

She attended Rossford Elementary and All Saints Catholic School. High school was spent at Rossford High and Penta County Vocational School, where she studied horticulture.

She graduated in 2000. Nichole earned an associate’s degree in applied science, and an associate’s degree in MRI technology from Owens Community College.

Nichole enjoyed gardening and cooking meals with vegetables and herbs from her garden. She shared those meals with her family and friends. She loved music and enjoyed going to concerts. She was very artistic, painting with acrylics, making candles and jewelry. Her family all enjoyed the Christmas gifts she lovingly made.

Left to cherish her memory are her children, Phoenix Bishop and Starla Layman; her brother, Eric Hreben (Ruba) and their son, Emmett, and her parents, Linda Jarosz (Richard) and Mark Hreben (Susan).

She had numerous aunts, uncles and cousins who all enjoyed family time and holidays with her. She was married to Dale Douglas Smith of Walbridge.

A Celebration of Life is planned for next spring.
