My deepest condolences to Stephen, David & Gary. I have such great memories of Nadine from family vacations to holiday meals. She was an amazing woman and will truly be missed.

We remember Nadine fondly for all her tremendous attributes: her warmth, charm, interest in and caring for people, and her joy and talent for entertaining. In vitation from Nadine for a gathering at her beautiful, love-filled home, was a promise of good times to be had by all while consuming her fabulous home-made cuisine. She has already been greatly missed in the years she has been confined in a nursing facility, but we're sure that she spread her warmth among the staff who cared for her, thus continuing to warm up any room she was in. An angel, now she can frolic among the angels in heaven and entertain them, while her friends and family here on earth cherish their precious memories of her.
