Nicole Lauren Billnoske was born on February 8, 1997, in Conroe, TX, to Steven and Donna Billnoske. She passed away unexpectedly on September 17, 2017, at the age of 20. Nicole lived with her family in New Waverly, TX where she attended school from kindergarten until she graduated in 2015. While in school Nicole successfully participated in all that she did including volleyball, softball, and cheerleading. She also showed pigs and won Grand Champion her senior year. Nicole was currently attending Sam Houston State University where she was a junior majoring in Elementary Education. She was so excited to be nearing her dream of becoming a teacher. She always had a plan for her life and worked hard to make her plans a reality.
Nicole loved the finer things in life and worked hard so that she could have what she liked and still pay for school. She worked at Vernon’s Kuntry Katfish for the last three years. Most important to her were her family and friends from various towns, including her Kuntry Katfish friends and family. Her personality was larger than life and her smile could light up any room. Everywhere she went she was the life of the party and was always the best-dressed even if she was just in shorts and a t-shirt. Her witty, smart, strong-willed, and beautiful personality will be missed by so many. There will forever be a void in so many places and in so many lives.
She is survived by her parents, Steven and Donna, her two sisters, Megan and Ashley, maternal grandparents, Anton and Georgie Cerny, the love of her life, Rylie McKinney, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. She is preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Adam and Sadie Mae Billnoske, and two of her uncles, James (Jimmy) Slott and Joe (Sonny) Malak Jr. We are sure her Grandad, Granny, Uncle Jimmy, and Uncle Sonny have greeted her in Heaven with open arms. She is loved by many and will be greatly missed. Our lives will never be the same without our beautiful Nicole. We love you so much. You will always be daddy’s little “possum,” momma’s big “baby girl,” and Rylie’s “snookums.” Fly High Nicole!
