She was born in Clarkston, WA on October 6, 1972 to Robert Andresen Sr (deceased) and
Joyce Johnston of Colbert, WA.
She is survived by her two daughters: Samantha Gamache, 26 and Katilyn Corkins, 19 both of

Her fourteen siblings: Robert, Chris, Tommy, Jennifer, Sharon, Aaron, Amber, Ashley, Jerrod, Reyna, Austin, Acacia, April and Marcus. Her soulmate, Dave Roberts, who cared for her and loved her unconditionally. Dave will continue to love and care for Nicci’s beloved dogs, Bella and Bruce.
Nicci leaves behind two sets of grandparents: Monte and Wendy Johnston and Jack and
Marjorie Lee, all of Spokane. There are aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and many cousins and friends that feel the loss of our precious “Nicci”.
Nicci graduated from West Valley High School in 1990. She played on the high school
basketball team. Shortly after graduation, she enlisted in the US Coast Guard where she
graduated first in her basic training unit. While stationed in Ilwaco, WA, she was married to
Thomas Gamache and had her first daughter, Samantha. They moved to Connecticut for a few years but later divorced when she returned home to the northwest. Her youngest daughter, Katilyn, was born in Spokane. Nicci was employed for about 12 years as a blackjack dealer at several different casinos; she loved being around and interacting with people. She then was employed for another ten years or so as a waitress with most of those years at the Olive Garden in both Kennewick and Spokane WA. She made friends easily and was kind to everyone.
She loved her daughters, her large extended family and adored her puppies who gave her comfort everyday. In the last few years, one of her favorite things to do was to bake birthday cakes for her friends and neighbors. She loved to give cards and always took the time to select the best one. Nicci was so lucky to meet Dave in 2018, they were perfect together and she was the happiest she had been in a very long time.
Please join us for a “Celebration of Nicci’s Life”, on Sunday, March 15th at the Sunset Chapel at 2:30pm.
