PLYMOUTH – Nicole Renee Beguin, 23, passed away Aug. 9, 2014, at Memorial Hospital of South Bend from injuries due to a motorcycle accident.
She was born Oct. 5, 1990, in Plymouth, to Dwight J. and Julie A. Durham Beguin.
She graduated from Plymouth High School with the class of 2009. She served as a manager of the Plymouth High School boys tennis team for two years, and was heavily involved in the drama department in high school and the Crimson Connection. She then furthered her education through Grace College in Warsaw and Bethel College in South Bend, graduating with an associate’s degree in nursing in 2013. She was also an accomplished tennis player through high school and while attending Grace College.
Upon graduation and passing her national and state boards, she worked as an emergency room registered nurse at Memorial Hospital in South Bend for the past year, a job she was very passionate about.
She was a member of the Crossroads Church in Plymouth and went with her church in summer 2011 on a mission trip to Haiti. She loved to sing and play guitar, taking lessons from her older sister, and enjoyed catching fish when they were out on the boats fishing. She was a fan of the Chicago Blackhawks, the Bears and the Cubs. She also enjoyed motorcycle rides with her boyfriend, Andy Pavolka.
