Dear Pam,
So very sorry to hear of Nadine's passing. I had never met her but remember hearing lots about her when we worked so closely together years ago. If she was anything like you, an amazing person I am sure!

I worked with Nadene at the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries from 2000 until 2013. We shared a love of the great Highland Bagpipes, and if fact it was Nadene who introduced me to my first instructor. I always tried to goad her back into playing after she retired from piping, but I knew when she she gave me a ALL of her old music, she was really hanging up the pipes. I haved missed our chats about her playing days with the Halifax Police Pipe Band and sharing stories about shared acquaintances. She was very proud of her heritage. I know she will be missed by all that knew her.

I worked with Nadene as Fishery Officer during her early years with DFO in Halifax. I worked with Nadine on a daily basis and attended a number of training courses, including the RCMP training academy in Regina. Nadine was an easy going and warm person, enjoyed working with her on many patrols. My deepest sympathies go out to her husband, her family and friends.

My husband and I both had the privilege of working with Nadene as Fishery Officers during her stint with DFO. We have many fond memories of her, especially of those times we spent together during prolonged training courses. I especially got to know Nadene ("Nadingy" as my husband teasingly called her) while at the RCMP training academy in Regina, and have always been impressed and inspired by her easy-going nature, her quiet determination and her ability to take challenging situations in stride. She always had a smile on her face and had a way of making everyone around her feel at ease. Her intelligence, courage, sense of humour and warm heart will always be remembered. Our deepest sympathies go out to her husband, her family and her friends.

Dear Gordon and all of Nadene’s family,
I am very sad to hear about Nadene’s passing. I always appreciated her matter of fact approach to life, her wit and her chuckle. But most of all, I appreciated her friendship. Her optimistic nature was an inspiration for all of us. Nadene was so proud of her family, and it is my wish that each of you will feel her love and find peace in the days ahead. I am very sorry that I will not be there tomorrow to pay my final respects to such a wonderful person.
