On Saturday, April 1, 2017, Julia Mae Peters Nichlos went home to be with the Lord. She was born July 12, 1923, in Angie to the late Lee Vance Peters and the late Eliza Weary-Peters.

She was a devoted member of Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church, under the leadership of the late Rev. B.B. Moses. She continued her faithful and steadfast service for many years, under the leadership of the Rev. Dr. A.S. Nelson.

All who knew her, knew that she was very sweet and loving. She was also a devoted friend, aunt, sister, wife and mother. There was never a time that you would not see her without a smile or making you laugh. Even the smallest things she would say would brighten up your day. She stayed ready for a good laugh.

She leaves to cherish her memory one sister-in-law, Amy Peters of California; one daughter-in-law, Sarah Nichlos of Angie; five grandchildren, Jackie (Clyde) Brown and Brian (Cashanda) Nichlos, both of Bogalusa, Apostle Kenneth (Tonia) Nichlos of Columbus, Ohio, Tammy (Alvin) Love and Shouna Love, both of California; 14 great-grandchildren; 11 great-great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Porter Nichlos; daughter, Eulia Mae Love; son, Ozell “Jack” Nichlos; granddaughter, Sheila Love; five brothers; three sisters; and other relatives that were influential in her upbringing.

A viewing of the body will be Saturday, April 8, from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. at Mt. Zion Church. The funeral will follow the viewing at 11 a.m.
