Nadine was a lifetime parent and homemaker who opened her home and her life to everyone. For a period of time, Nadine worked at East Elementary in Tooele. For many years, Nadine enjoyed making holiday meals for her growing family, never complaining, just faithfully producing a hearty meal for all who came to her home.

Nadine will be remembered as a wonderful story teller who enjoyed sharing memories of her long life. Nadine will be particularly remembered for giving the best back tickles while entertaining her grandchildren and great-grandchildren at sleepovers.
