I sure loved Nadine and loved spending the nights with her. She took me under her wing and really took care of me when I was with her. She and Shorty both were so kind and loving. I know she will be missed by all who knew her. She was an angel living and now she'll be an Angel of God watching over us all. Love you Nadine, Rest in Gods's arms now,,, will be looking up to see your smile...

I am so sorry to hear of Nadine's passing. I have so many wonderful memories of her since my childhood. All the times we spent together at Starlite, Lancaster Speedway and various other dirt tracks. Her husband, Shorty Edwards, drove a race car for my father. Use to ride together to the races, hang out and just made great memories. She was a beautiful lady inside and out, and I will truly miss seeing and talking to her on the phone. RIP sweet lady!!
