His parents: Hugh Winder Nibley and Phyllis Nibley -- they had eight children: Paul S. Nibley [BYH Class of 1965], Provo, Utah; Thomas H.

Memories: I remember the days when all of the boys had to run up to the old BYU stadium for gym class with Coach Jed Gibson. Our lockers and showers were located in an old wooden building, and the coach had an office there. One day Gibson was interviewing us one at a time about grades or something, and when my turn came I left the field where we were doing track stuff, and went in to his office. As I went inside I passed an old door that was nailed shut. It divided the locker room hall from another locker room on the other side. I could hear talking and laughter on the other side of the door. The voices were female. I moved down the hall to the office. After the business in the office, I came back out into the hall. I was all alone and couldn't help but notice that the door had a small hole drilled in one panel. I could still hear the girls talking. I went toward the door with every hope of enjoying the scene on the other side. Just as I put my eye to the hole, Coach Gibson's voice came roaring out of his office: "Get away from that door!" The timing was perfect. I jumped away from the door and ran outside to send the next victim in. @2005 ~ ~ ~ ~ Job: Paul Nibley Productions, President. @2009

Steve Nibley
  • Work: (801) 375-7175

Class of 1966 - Honorary Member. Stephen Nibley helped organize "Friends of Maeser," a non-profit group founded to take donations to save Maeser Elementary School in Provo, which was said to be the oldest operating school in Utah. The Provo City School District wrestled with a decision to tear down the 100-plus-year-old school if a new tenant wasn't found for the two-story building by July 2002. The building was vacated June 28, 2002, when workers moved the last pieces of furniture out of the school. Beginning in fall 2002, Maeser Elementary's student body moved into a new school in southeast Provo. In February 2005 the Provo City Council voted to change a city ordinance and finalize a deal that will save the historic Maeser School. The council authorized a new, unique zone for the block where the century-old school stands. The new zoning designation allows the Provo Housing Authority, a not-for-profit organization, to renovate the building for 32 senior housing apartments and to build 12 single-family homes in the school's park area. Neighborhood residents asked for an opportunity to purchase the park land to preserve it as open space, and the council agreed to create the zone with a provision for a park. "There's more to revitalization than new houses," resident Steve Nibley said. "It's very important to the quality of life to have parks." Housing authority director Doug Carlson said he was willing to hold off on the sale of the 12 lots for the homes for 45 days to give the neighbors a chance to raise funds and make a bid.

Margaret Ann Nicholes (Otterstrom), born January 27, 1927; 8. Mary Joyce Nicholes (Woodbury) [BYH Class of 1949]; and 9. K. R. Kelly Nicholes [male]. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Ruth Nicholes Miller, age 87, passed away peacefully on December 19, 2006 surrounded by her family. Born on March 25, 1919, Ruth began life in Utah's "Dixie" (St. George) at the end of World War I, the fourth child in a large family of nine. In an autobiography, Ruth wrote that her "parents were educated, respected, talented people who were strong in their faith and totally devoted to each other, their family and the community." Ruth's father, Joseph Kelly Nicholes, was a former President of Dixie College and her mother, Olive Maiben Nicholes, was an accomplished author and painter. After the Nicholes family moved to Provo, she graduated from Brigham Young High School in 1937. Her father taught Chemistry at Brigham Young University. Ruth served a mission for the LDS Church in Germany in 1938. Ruth's mission was cut short with Hitler's invasion of Poland in 1939. She was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and faithfully served in many positions. Upon her return to the United States from Germany, Ruth resumed her education, earning a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education at BYU, where she met the love of her life, Martin Miller. Ruth and Martin were married in the Salt Lake Temple on August 3, 1942. While Martin was a professor at BYU, Ruth became an elementary school teacher for Provo City School District, and later earned a Masters Degree in Library Science from BYU. Ruth taught elementary school and served as a librarian for over thirty years. She also enjoyed gardening and singing in choirs. Ruth's primary legacy is a devotion to education, not only of her own children, but all children. Even in her eighties, Ruth often commented that one of the greatest joys of her life was teaching children how to read, and helping them achieve the best within them. Ruth's beloved Martin predeceased her in 1980, although hardly a day went by without Ruth reminiscing how much she missed him. In 1981, Ruth wrote, "I know where he is and with whom. I have no regrets, just wonderful memories of all we have shared together." Ruth is survived by her three children: Lawrence Martin (Karen), Judith Evelyn McConkie (James), Max Alma (Linda), eleven grandchildren, and nineteen great grand children. She is also survived by three sisters, Virginia, Elizabeth and Joyce, and one brother, Kelly. Ruth's greatest desire was to bring joy to her family. Her wish for Christmas, 2006, was that she would be with all her family. The family wishes to express a heartfelt appreciation to Brighton Gardens of Salt Lake City, where Ruth lived the final six years of her life. Brighton Gardens gave Ruth continuous support, love, kindness and respect, for which she always expressed gratitude. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m., December 23, 2006 at the Larkin Mortuary, 260 East South Temple, Salt Lake City. Friends and family are invited to a viewing commencing at 9:00 a.m. at the mortuary. Graveside services will be held at East Lawn Memorial Hills Cemetery in Provo, Utah at approximately 1:30 p.m. on December 23, 2006.
