Heather “Nicole” Coursey Gunnells of Kincardine, formerly of North Augusta, South Carolina, died Monday, Aug. 22, 2022, at the age of 39. Beloved wife of Ryan. Loving and proud mother of Aiden, Declan and Rylan. Cherished daughter of David Coursey Sr. and Tina Coursey of Graniteville, South Carolina. Nicole is lovingly remembered by her sister, Adrienne Lowery of North Augusta, South Carolina; and her brother, David Coursey Jr. and his wife, Aerial, and their children, Charlee and Pauly, of Jackson, South Carolina. Missed by many aunts, uncles and cousins, and fondly remembered by her extended family and friends in South Carolina and Kincardine, and by the members of the “brigade.” Nicole loved walking the beach, searching for, and collecting, beach glass. She cared deeply, helping whenever and however she could. Her giving and helpful nature made her the perfect volunteer at the school. She loved to help all children, and her reward was all the smiles that reflected back to her. For those who knew and loved Nicole, kindness would be the word they would easily speak, when describing her. She touched the lives of many, and she will be deeply missed. Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Details will be published when finalized. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to Huron Shores Hospice, or a Cancer Society of your choice, would be greatly appreciated, and may be arranged by contacting the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home, Kincardine, at 519-396-2701 or
