Clara "Lolly" Nyce

On Tuesday, February 18, 2020, Clara “Lolly” Nyce, loving wife and mother, passed away at the age of 89.  Lolly was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 23, 1930. She married Raymond Nyce in 1948. Together, they raised four children. Lolly was dedicated to her husband and wholeheartedly involved herself in his work and hobbies. She moved to 4 states to advance his career and remained devoted to him throughout her life. She was proud of her children’s accomplishments including four college bachelor’s degrees, two master’s degrees, and one doctorate degree. Lolly had a deep love of the arts and furthered her skill and knowledge by taking art courses at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. Following high school, she worked in the art department of the Franklin Olean Tile Company. She was active in the local art community as a member of the Western Art Guild, Palette Club, and Beehive Rock and Gem Club where she held various offices and contributed to the newsletter. She was a talented artist using acrylic and oil pastels. Lolly created portraits, animal images and Native American scenes. She shared her love of art with all who knew her and volunteered time demonstrating using rocks as a medium to create lifelike paintings of animals.
 

Lolly was preceded in death by her husband Raymond and son Steven. She is survived by her daughter Terry Philips (Dave), sons Ray Nyce Jr. (Dianne) and Thomas Nyce (Claire), grandchildren Kevin Phillips (Sarah), Lindsay Butterfield (Chris), and 3 great grandchildren (James, Lela, and Charlie). Lolly also leaves a step granddaughter, Terrie Delaurier (Pete) in Centennial, Colorado, and their children, Nicolle, Luc and Dante.

I stayed overnight in Sandy and Banie's room one time when my folks made a visit to PA. It was the BEST time ever!!. It was hard growing up with all brothers and on visits my parents liked to stay with my dad's brother who had four more boys. Anyway, I thought my Aunt Anne and Uncle Richie were the coolest parents ever and what fun to hang out with Bonnie, Sandy and Banie. Little Richie was a cute little guy too. Thanks so much for writing. I miss my Mom and it's nice to hear about your interactions with her.

My mother Bonnie Tallman and I are very sad to hear of Aunt Lolly's passing..my grandfather (Lolly's brother Richard) always talked so fondly of his only sister growing up. She was always so beautiful and I'd like to think my own daughters inherited her gift and talent of art and drawing. Hugs to you all.
