Nicki Reed

Nicki Reed, 57, of Pompton Lakes, passed away on June 2, 2021.

Born in Paterson, Nicki was the daughter of Nicholas and Dorothy Amandatidis. She graduated from Passaic County Tech and studied at William Paterson College in Wayne. 

In 2009, Nicki was a transplant recipient due to the generosity and love from one of her best friends, Theresa Ackerman. It was no surprise that one of Nicki's friends would do something like this for her, as she brought out the best in others. She maintained life-long friendships, and loved others unconditionally. 

An avid reader, Nicki also loved to surround herself with loved ones, entertaining and cooking for them. She also spent much of her time as a volunteer with the NJ Sharing Network. 

Nicki is survived by her daughter, Alexa; her siblings, John Amanatidis, Debbie Uthman, Philip Amanatidis, Anthony Amanatidis and Nicholas Amanatidis, Jr. and his wife Cherry; her fiance, Tim Lavender and his children, Krista, Micah, Jack and Mackenzie; and her nieces and nephew, Kristina, Stefani, Victoria, Caitlyn and Nicholas III. Nicki was predeceased by her parents, Nicholas and Dorothy.

Visitation will be held from 4 pm to 8 pm on Monday, June 7th at the M. John Scanlan Funeral Home.
