A graveside service will be 2 p.m. Thursday at Lumbee Memorial Gardens in Lumberton.
Audella was preceded in death by five of her 10 children, Sandra Backus, Robert (Butch) Nichols, Donna Lanum, Joanna Woods and Carl Nichols.
She is survived by her husband of 41 years, Bill D. Jacobs of the home; two daughters, Deborah Nichols of Pembroke, Norma White of West Virginia; three sons, Timothy Nichols of Ocean Isle, Rodney (Renee’) Nichols of Laurinburg, and Michael Villiers of Pembroke; two granddaughters of the home, Christine D.

Audella worked many years in the food service business, including eight years for Sim Oxendine, and she ran the Chicken Hut for three years. She was a faithful child of God, a loving person to family, friends and strangers. She never had an unkind word for anyone. She will be deeply missed but is now at home with her Lord living her peaceful eternity until we join her.
