Nicole Ranae Van Horn McCullough

June 16, 1974 - May 18, 2017 

Through her short life, Nicole delighted and entertained those around her.   

Nicole was born June 16, 1974 in Corvallis, Oregon and later moved to Medford, Ore. where she attended Orchard Hill elementary then graduated from North Medford High School in 1992.  

Unconventional and strong minded, she was a delight in how she interpreted the world around her. From her unique fashion statements to her love of music, books, and all things Disney, Nicole brought much laughter and surprise to those around her wherever she lived.  

A world traveler, she easily picked up German, French, and Spanish. She spent her junior year in Germany on a horse ranch, eagerly exploring Europe with her host family, telling stories of her visits to Buchenwald, the Berlin Wall, and skiing the Swiss Alps.  

Tyler, the light of her life, was born at 10:00 p.m. August 10, 2005, a very easy birth, and it turned out that he was a joy to raise.  He was the center of her life, and his Mom would take him on school field trips and family outings with their friend, Bailey. Tyler learned to cook both in school and at home with his Mom; they shared many good times preparing meals together.  

After years of being chronically ill, Nicole slipped away from us May 18, 2017. Her family and friends will miss her very much. A service for those who knew her and would like to remember her life is scheduled for September 9, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in downtown Medford.  Casual attire would be her desire.
