Nicky Ausmus

Nicky Ausmus, age 40 of Petersburg, passed away Tuesday, June 4, 2019.

Nicky was born December 28, 1978, in Aurora, Ill., and raised in Tecumseh, Mich., by her mother Bea. Her smile would light up any room and she was instantly liked by everyone she met. When you did meet Nicky, you sensed instantly that her inner beauty matched the outer beauty that shined in her smile and her eyes. Nicky has proven, throughout her life, her loyalty and devotion to her family and if you were Nicky’s friend, you were family in her eyes.

Life dealt Nicky, like everyone, many trials and hardships, but she inspired all of us with her ability to overcome any obstacle.

Nicky had a love for writing and showed real talent for it. She dreamed about having a book or poem published one day.

We will all struggle to fill the hole she left in our lives, but know that we will all do whatever possible to fulfill the life goals she set for us and make her proud for her influences.

Rest in peace Nicky. We love you.

Nicky is the beloved wife of Bryan Ausmus; loving mother of Liliana Kurutz, Gavin Kurutz, Andrew Ausmus, and Amanda Birr; dearest grandmother of Aria Birr, Jayli Birr, Miya Birr, and one on the way; and dear daughter of Bea Sanchez.

Services have already taken place. Arrangements were entrusted to Rupp Funeral Home of Monroe, Mich.
