Our little angel, Nicole Lynn ‘Niki’ Hesser, was called to her Heavenly home on Wednesday, November 3, 2021 while at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, Pittsburgh. Born August 15, 1981, she was a daughter of Donna and John Hesser of Hopewell Township. Niki touched everyone’s heart with her radiant smile and outgoing personality with the staff and residents of McGuire Memorial Home where she formerly resided as well as the Community Home in Brighton Township where she currently resided. She was a social young lady who enjoyed being around others and joking with staff, leafing through books with large colorful pictures and having them read to her, listening to music -the oldies and doo wop, working with her blocks and beans, her babies, going out to eat, coloring and painting and liked chai tea, coffee, milkshakes, hot chocolate and particularly M & Ms. Niki was a 2003 graduate of New Horizon School. A smile costs nothing but gives much. Niki gave away her smiles, hugs and kisses so freely that everyone was enriched by her.
She leaves to mourn her passing, her parents, a brother, John E (Kacy) Hesser of Industry and a niece, Bailey Maie Hesser. Two aunts Sherry (Frank) Filippelli of Monaca and Sara ‘Putzie’ Hill of Center Township. Three cousins Debbie (Victor) DeCristoforo of Copley, Ohio, Katherine ‘Kitty’ (Kelly) Hogan of Brighton Township and Stacie Shearer of Beaver. She also leaves an extended family and numerous friends.
Friends will be received on Sunday, November 7th from 1-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. at the Simpson Funeral & Cremation Services, 1119 Washington Avenue, Monaca. Additional visitation will be held on Monday from 10 a.m. until the time of service at 11 a.m. at the Monaca United Methodist Church, 813 Indiana Avenue, Monaca.
The family would like to thank McGuire Memorial Home and Community Home who lovingly cared for Niki throughout her life. In lieu of flowers, the family has suggested memorial contributions be made, if desired to McGuire Memorial Home, 2119 Mercer Road, New Brighton, PA. 15066.
