Nicki lived here in Bolingbroke with her husband Kenny Greene and her two daughters Sydney & Abigail Greene and many extended fam- ily members and tons of friends. " Nicki was only 52 years young when God called her home on May 20, 2018. Nicki was a blessing to all who were fortunate enough to know her. She was a VICKI SMITH beautiful woman inside and out and had a vivacious personality, unrelenting wit, a magnetic smile and a laugh that was unforget- table - the kind of laugh that would make you laugh just because she did. I enjoyed lots of those laughs over the years, and she was always the life of the party. I remember Nicki for her dancing. She and Kenny were the stars of the dance floor and even in the car, a store - didn't matter, if Nicki heard a song she loved, she'd start dancing. She also loved pretty clothes and loved to shop. When I hear the word bling, I think of Nicki. She always looked beautiful and put together and this was another reason to be drawn to her. She owned and operated Cottage Cuts Salon here in downtown Bolingbroke for many years, and I would often ;ee three or four cars in her parking lot each time I passed by.
