January 22, 1971 - January 28, 2019
Nicolle K. Kasin was born in Richardson, TX, on January 22, 1971. She attended Plano Sr. High School where she played on the girl’s state soccer championship team. Leading with a strong left foot, she was part of the Sting ’71 soccer club and was most often “her father’s (Al) daughter” when playing exceptional football. Beyond the Sting, Nicolle’s skills and achievements placed her within the Women’s Soccer Olympic Development Program. From high school, she then attended Stephen F. Austin State University where she took full advantage of the social and scholastic atmosphere and graduated with a BS degree in Biology and a minor in Math. Nicolle then began her 22-year career at PepsiCo within the Frito Lay R&D Department. Ironically, it was her skills playing for the company soccer team that led to her recent position within the PepsiCo IT Department.
Nicolle traveled the world extensively and was able to cover all continents except Antarctica since she always thought it was too cold! Everywhere she went, she never knew a stranger and made friends here and there (just ask her favorite traveling companion, her mom, Pat). In addition to her international travels, the beaches of Destin were her comfort zone and her yearly retreat for R&R. Upon the return of her travels and souvenir shopping, Nicolle always looked forward to seeing her family and 4-legged companion, Gumbo.
Most recently, Nicolle had plans for a “surprise” spring wedding to Michael Villalva, of Prosper, TX, in May 2019. For this wedding celebration, we ask that all friends and family celebrate the fond memories of Nicolle through laughter and tears of joy.
All in all, Nicolle was a loving and giving person who never thought twice about lending a helping hand and never expected anything in return. She was so full of life and was determined to place the needs of others above her own. Cheers to you, Nicolle! May your wine glass always stay full while watching the sunset on the glistening white beaches above!
Memorial donations can be made to any local pet shelter in her memory. Although there will be no funeral or services, Nicolle’s Facebook page will remain open and all are welcome to post memories and final words to her there.
