Nikki was born September 2, 1951, in Alamogordo, NM, to Mike and Ida Dell Musgrove. They have preceded her in death as well as a beloved stepfather Harry Finch, a half-sister D Karen Musgrove, and her only son, the love of her life, Brett Zane Pratt.
Nikki is survived by a half-brother, Allen Musgrove and wife, Denise, of Los Lunas, NM; a cousin, Jerry Kennedy, of Rio Rancho, NM, as well as a multitude of friends that she considers to be her extended family.
Nikki attended Roswell High School, graduated from Southwestern Business College in Roswell, NM, and later attended New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM.
She owned and operated several trailer parks, and apartment complexes during her early career. Later in her career, and prior to her illness, she worked at McGinn’s Pistachio Tree Ranch County Store, where she looked forward to interacting with diverse customers from across the country and world that visited the store.
Nikki loved to research her family genealogy, take long drives, watch a good movie, and spend special time with her friends.
A special thank you to Chris Ostic and Brandi Stuffelbeam for being care givers to Nikki during her illness, to Irva and Michelle with Alamogordo Home Care and Hospice for their care and compassion and to Regional Medical Oxygen for supplying her oxygen.
Once arrangements have been finalized there will be an additional announcement published.
