HOLLEY – Nicole Lynn Poquette, passed away tragically in a car accident on March 11, 2024 in South Carolina where she was residing. She was born September 14, 1982 to Mary Verhagen Carpenter and George Poquette in Brockport.

Nicole (Nic) was a fearless, strong woman. Among her favorite pastimes were spending time with her daughter (and best friend) and cuddling on the couch with her son and dogs. Nic was amazing at arranging any kind of get-together with anyone who wanted to participate. She could have a party put together with a moment’s notice. She was happiest outside, either on the water or on a beach in the sun or working in her gardens. She also cherished the time she was able to spend in Puerto Rico with her love, Franky and his family.

Nic was a bit wild and outspoken – you never had to wonder what she really thought (often that your food wasn’t seasoned enough) and she was truly gifted at making up a good story. She will always be remembered by her mom for her beautiful smile. Her big brother Mike (Ken) was like a best friend and father-figure and she had a special twin-like bond with her younger sister Priscilla who she enjoyed going for long walks and bike rides with.

Nicole is survived by her children, Mariah Weitz and Kyler Weitz; the love of her life, Francisco (Franky) Garcia, her parents Mary (Russell) Carpenter and George Poquette; siblings Kenneth (Beth) Verhagen, Daniel (Carolyn) Benedict, Michelle (Troy) Kingdollar, Priscilla (Michael) Church and Daniel (Emily) Carpenter, several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles & cousins.

Nicole was an amazing spirit who made an impact on everyone she met and will be missed by all who knew her.

Nicole’s family will receive friends at the Christopher Mitchell Funeral Homes 16650 State Route 31, Holley on Thursday March 21, from 4:00-6:00, followed by her Memorial Service at 6:00. Immediately following the service, there will be a celebration of Nicole at the VFW in Holley. It will open at 6:00.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made for the benefit of Nicole’s kids to the care of Ken Verhagen, 232 Linwood Ave, Albion.
