Nicolette Christine Artis was born on July 13, 1951, in Riverdale, ND, the daughter of Edward and Hulda (Kilber) Machau. She graduated from Valley City High School in 1969 and married Daniel Artis on March 3, 1970. She worked as a bookkeeper for 32 years while raising two sons in Jamestown, ND. Nikki was active in her church and community and loved spending time with her friends, children, and grandchildren. She especially enjoyed spending part of the winter in North Carolina with her sister Catherine and family.
With the passing of her husband this past year, Nikki truly cherished her friends for their support through this difficult time. Even though we miss her dearly, we can rejoice in the fact she is once again with the love of her life, Dan.
Nikki is survived by her sons, Matthew (Heidi) Artis of West Fargo, ND and Joshua (Nicole) Artis of Park Rapids, MN; grandchildren, Spencer, Chloe, Rylan, Olivia, and Jocelyn; brother, James (Jackie) Kilber of Eaton, CO; sisters, June Liebel of Bismarck and Catherine (Larry) Reed of Charlotte, NC.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Daniel, and her parents.
