Clara Tawan Nichols was born March 28, 1963, in Bainbridge, the daughter of Tarvin Morris Nichols and Clara Jean Cloud Nichols. Tawan was a graduate of Bainbridge High School, Class of 1981. She lived most of her life in Bainbridge and worked as a bookkeeper for Georgia Diesel. She was a member of Calvary Assembly of God.

Tawan was quite a character. She never met a stranger and loved everyone. She spent time every day making the rounds checking on people. Tawan enjoyed singing and could sing most anything. Often she shared her heart with a song.

Survivors include her brother, Morris Nichols and his wife, Jennifer, of Bainbridge; her mother-in-law, Ruby “Granny” Barber; and lots of loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and sisters-in-law. Tawan was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Joe Barber.
