Nicole Christine Hollingsworth, 26, fell asleep in the arms of Jesus and entered her eternal home on May 1, 2021.  Born in Jefferson City on December 21, 1994, she was baptized and confirmed at Grace Lutheran Church in Holts Summit, Missouri.  She moved with her family to Lexington in 2011 and graduated from Lexington High School in 2013.  She completed her Bachelor of Science in Social Psychology, graduated Magna Cum Laude from Park University in March 2021 and had begun her career in mental health.  She was an exceptional student, accomplished high school volleyball athlete and loved animals, especially her dog, Scout.  She was the light of her family and she fiercely loved them in return.  She never ended a conversation without saying, “I love you.”

Nicole leaves behind her parents, Charles and Christine Hollingsworth; brothers, Robert Hollingsworth and Alexander Hollingsworth; grandparents, Robert and Bernice Rasa, Jr.; her boyfriend, Dylan Fosdick; and was deeply loved by aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.  She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Charlotte and Wesley Patton; uncles, Kenneth Rasa, Clay Hollingsworth and Harold Hollingsworth; and her great grandparents.

A funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Friday, May 7,  at Grace Lutheran Church, Lexington.  Burial will be in Machpelah Cemetery, Lexington.  Memorials may be made to the family in care of Charles Hollingsworth.  A charity will be chosen at a later date.  Arrangements have been entrusted  to Walker-Nadler-Fuller Funeral Home of Lexington. Memories and condolences may be left here.
