Nicole was born Nicole Lindsey Harms January 24, 2000 in Wichita, Kansas to Randell and Katy Harms. She was the youngest of four siblings and the adored baby of the family.
Nicole spent her first year and a half in Wichita and had a difficult start to life being born with Down Syndrome and having heart complications.
After her first year and a half, the family returned to their home and ministry in Brazil where she spent the following two and a half years of her life. All who met Nicole loved her and she would be passed from arm to arm amongst the Brazilians. During her early years, she got to live on a Bible camp. Her growth and development were aided by equestrian therapy and physical therapies.
Upon moving back to Wichita, Nicole continued with therapies at Erin Is Hope Foundation Incorporated where she received occupational, physical, and speech therapies for the following 10+ years. Following this, Nicole attended Heights High School for a couple years, and then finished her formal education at Levy Special Education Center.
With Nicole’s love for people and positive energy, she loved being a part of her family’s activities and ministries. She was always up for an adventure, loved to travel, and loved being the life of the party. Some of Nicole’s favorite things in life were horses, coloring/art, dancing, singing, pizza and pop, time with her siblings and family, and always had a new hobby and interest. The highlight of Nicole’s year was Young Life’s Capernaum Summer Camp where she made many friends and had so much fun. She really enjoyed the bi-weekly Capernaum Worship and loved her special needs Sunday school class at First Evangelical Free Church.
Nicole’s spiritual gift was the gift of service. She was always ready to give a lending hand. While Nicole was mostly non-verbal, her love for God was very evident in her art, prayer life, and words. When Nicole was around 13 years of age, she prayed the prayer of salvation with her mom in her family home with genuine tears in her eyes. Towards the end of her life, Nicole was always adorning her body and material possession with crosses and was always talking about, “Heaven God.” Her last verbal communication on this earth was her intimate bedtime prayer with her dad. She was an integral part of her family. Nicole was preceded in death by her mother, Katy. She is survived by her Father, Randell, brothers Seth (Antonia) and Ethan (Leah), and sister Monica (Jesse). She was a loving Aunt to her niece and nephew, Sofia and Gabe. Nicole will be sorely missed by all. While Nicole is greatly missed, we rejoice that she is with her Savior and mom.
