Nikki Burrell Obituary, Death – The 31st of December in 1976 until the 18th of January in 2023 Orfordville, WI – Nikki N. Burrell, 46 years old, of Orfordville, Virginia, received her wings on Wednesday, January 18, 2023, at the comfort of her own home. She was born in Beloit, Wisconsin on December 31st, 1976 to her parents, Roger Wells and Lalia (Hurd) Senecal. Nikki was recently admitted into the Parkview High School Hall of Fame after earning many varsity letters in a variety of sports during her time at Parkview High School, where she graduated at the top of her class in 1994.
On June 10, 2000, she tied the knot with the man she had loved all her life, Jim Burrell, in the state of New Hampshire. She spent a good portion of her time at LockNCharge working in the company’s sales department. Nikki was a devoted mother and wife who was always full of love. Pudge and Rosie, in particular, occupied a very special place in her heart, but all of her four-legged children did. Nikki will be remembered by her many nieces and nephews as the zany, fun-loving aunt who made them laugh no matter what.
Her life centred on her children, and she devoted her time to coaching, seeing them compete in athletics, and announcing the beginning line ups at Parkview games, where she is most known for saying “let’s get ready for jump ball.” Her children were the center of her life. Nikki and Jim loved spending time in the great outdoors together. They were both keen hunters, and they enjoyed activities such as camping at CBC, going boating, and sitting by the fire. She also took pleasure in tending to her garden, basking in the warmth of the sun, and spending time with all of her lifelong friends.
While Nikki was playing the piano and silently sang with the voice of an angel, she was able to find calm. She accepted the opportunity to pray with Dawn and the other members of her women’s group and served as a leader for praise and worship. Nikki was a devout Christian, and she was well aware that “God numbered her days, not cancer!”
Nikki is survived by her husband, Jim; her three children, Taylor Burrell, Cally Burrell, and Gage Burrell; her mother, Lalia (Mike) Senecal; her stepmother, Cheryl Wells; her brother, Lanny (Aubrey) Wells; and her two sisters, Lori (Eli) Stokes and Susan Wagner. She will also be remembered by her stepmother, Cheryl Wells, and her stepbrother, Lanny (Aubrey).
Her grandfather, Roger Wells, her father, Roger Wells, her uncle Chico Wells, and her grandmother, Kate Wells, all passed away before she did. Girl, I will love you for all of time and eternity. Have a safe flight. Because of the excellent care that Nikki received at the UW Carbone Cancer Center, especially from Sandy and the nurses at 1 S. Park, the family would like to express their gratitude. They would also want to extend their gratitude to Nikki and Jim’s employers, LockNCharge and GoRiteWay, for the support they have provided during their trip.
The funeral service for Nikki will be held on Wednesday, January 25, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. at the FREE METHODIST CHURCH located at 1919 Cleora Drive in Beloit. Reverend Rich Whippler will preside over the ceremony. The memorial service will be followed by a celebration of life that will take place at the American Legion in Orfordville, commencing about seven o’clock in the evening. Instead of sending flowers, people are encouraged to contribute to a monument that will be set up in her honor. On our website, visitors are welcome to leave their condolences, as well as their cherished memories and comments.
