Nicole Baum


ALBANY, N.Y. – Nicole Baum of Albany died Aug. 16. She was the wife of Henry M. Baum for more than 57 years.

Born in Metz, France, she resided in Long Beach, N.Y. for 50 years before moving to Albany. She was an amazing woman, strong, determined and inspirational who made a difference in so many lives.

She was the mother of Sharon and her husband Alan Gaines of Cranston, Debbie and her husband Ron Zucker of Albany, and the late Doreen Randi and her surviving husband Philip Holmes of Vienna, Va. She was the grandmother of Benjamin, Alexander and Zachary Gaines, Cara Zucker and her husband Nick Henley, Evan Zucker, and Steven and Lauren Holmes.

What we learned from her was not how much was taken away but how much was left.
