Nikki Shae Bascom was tragically taken from us and placed gently into the loving arms of her Heavenly Father. She was a loving mother, a wonderful daughter, a wonderful caregiver, granddaughter and sister.
She was born to Brent and Karri Bascom on June 17, 1984 in Roosevelt, UT. She died April 21, 2016 in Silver City, NM. Her funeral services were held in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints chapel in Silver City. She was subsequently transported to Monticello, UT for a memorial service and interment.
Nikki started life in the beautiful little town of Victor, ID and moved to Silver City, NM with her mother and 4-year-old brother Jory when she was six. She graduated from Silver High School with top honors and a 4.0 grade point average.
Her son Matthew was born visually impaired and it explains her motivation for focus, her research and constant care for him. She so loved this son that he became her stimulus to learn everything medical so she alone could make Matthew independent and self-sufficient.
She entered Western NM University and graduated with the highest honors of her class with a Bachelors degree in nursing. Nikki continued her education with a masters of science in nursing and became a MSN Specialist – Doctor of Nursing.
She was the Supervising Director of Hidalgo, Gila, and Catron counties care system. She was also the head of the Clinical Nursing Educational program. Nikki was completely focused and loved everything about medicine and its related activities.
Her love to help people and fix broken things was so extensive that she will be memorialized by her medical associates in New Mexico forever.
She is survived by her son Matthew, daughter Adriannah, mother Karri Dalton, father Brent Bascom, brother Jory (Ezmia) Bascom, Uncle Cory (Gwen) Dalton, Aunts Denise (Clay) Hacking, Cami (David) Murray, maternal grandparents Bob and Coleen Dalton, paternal grandmother Elaine Bascom and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Her passion was her children, medicine, homemaking, family members, travel, but it was never about her person glory. She is now safe in the arms of her kind Heavenly Father, where she will receive that glory, for her diligent loving care she provided so many others while here on this earth. We love you Nikki, may God keep you in His arms forever.
