Nicole C. Rickard, D.V.M., age 47, of Marion died April 10, unexpectedly at home. She was the wife of David B. Lempert.

Nicole worked as a veterinarian at Chase Farm Veterinary Hospital as a valued associate for over 20 years. She always knew what she wanted to do for a living and her passion for speaking for the voiceless never wavered.

She enjoyed spending time with her family, going to the beach, traveling, being outdoors, and cheering for the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots.

Survivors include her husband; her father; two children, Shanley Lempert and Callum Lempert; a sister, Bridget A. Foley and her husband Thomas P. Foley IV of Braintree, and a niece, Patricia Foley.

Due to the current restrictions on public gatherings, a public service will be held at a later date. Arrangements are with the Saunders-Dwyer Mattapoisett Home for Funerals, 50 County Rd., Mattapoisett. For online condolence book, please visit
