Her passions included traveling with Bob throughout retirement with special visits to her daughters and grandchildren. Nadine enjoyed crafts of all types but especially loved to crochet. Nadine made numerous afghans for her girls, her nieces, her nephews and many family friends. A graveyard celebration of Nadine’s life is scheduled for Thursday, June 18, 2020 at Beulah Cemetery in Colby Kansas at 1:00 p.m. Central Time. As Frankie Laine sang in Nadine’s favorite song: “I believe that somewhere in the darkest night a candle glows. I believe for everyone who goes astray. Someone will come to show the way. I believe, I believe. I believe above the storm the smallest prayer will still be heard. I believe that someone in the great somewhere Hears every word.” Nadine believed. Be at Peace Mom, you are home.
