Nicole R. Coburn, 36 of Gaylord, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, March 12, 2021. Born on June 28, 1984 in Flint, Nicole was the daughter of Lisa (Laviolette) and Michael Coburn.
In 2001 she graduated from Flint Central and then attended Mott Community College with a full ride scholarship. She pursued her dream of becoming a Registered Nurse and was working towards her Bachelor of Nursing Degree through Kirtland Community College. Nicole worked as a Pharmacy Tech in the Oncology Department at McLaren Northern Michigan and then her most recent position was in the Emergency Department at Munson Healthcare Otsego Memorial Hospital and Mackinac Straits Health Systems. Nicole was one of a kind, a full of life personality who had a heart for people and animals. She had a heart of gold and helped others through nursing school. She was dedicated to the healthcare profession and had a knack for helping those in need.
