Donald Eugene Nice passed away on December 26, 2017 at home surrounded by his loving family who cared for him in his final months. He was 84. 

He was a retired farmer, a Dekalb Seed Corn dealer for 26 years, and former Superintendent of the Posey Township Water Corporation. 

He was a former member of the Indiana National Guard, a Fredericksburg Lions Club member, a trustee and deacon for the Livonia Baptist Church, and a former Howard Township volunteer fireman, and a volunteer for the Washington County Food Bank, the Red Cross blood drive, the Friends of Beck’s Mill, and various others. 

He was a 1952 graduate of Salem High School.

He is survived by his wife of 59 ½ years, Jerlene (Jerri) Aaron Nice; children Sandra Brown and husband Bronie of Campbellsburg, IN;  Jennifer Schoch and husband Dr. Lawrence Schoch of Madison, IN; Matt Nice and wife Glenda of Crawfordsville, IN;  Tim Nice and wife Lisa of Salem; 8 grandchildren, Samuel (Roberta), Emily, Cora, and Evan Brown, Annie Orrill, and Ryan, Kacie, and Jaelen Nice; and 4 great-children, Isaac, Evelyn, Alsea, and Elijah.

Also surviving are sister Barbara Curry and brother Kenneth Nice and many loving in-laws and nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents Melvin Elmer Nice and Edith Kellams Nice, a sister Carolyn Hauger, and infant brother Thomas Nice.

Don was an enthusiastic sports fan especially basketball when his sons and grandson played, a lifelong farmer who loved being on a tractor or looking over his fields, a helpful neighbor who would drop what he was doing to go to someone’s aid, a very hard worker who never stopped being busy until his illness, an avid conversationalist who never met a stranger, and a devoted husband, father, brother, and son who loved his family.

The family has designated the following memorials: The Livonia Cemetery Fund, The Livonia Baptist Church, and the Washington County Food Bank.

Funeral services will be held Friday at 1:00PM at Livonia Baptist Church. 

Burial will follow in Livonia Cemetery. 

Visitation will be Thursday from 4-8PM at Weathers Funeral Home and Friday from 11AM-time of service at the church.
