When she was born, her brother William started calling her "Adine", thus we all know her as Nadine.

She was raised Baptist growing up on a farm 10 miles north of Tulia, Texas.

After high school, she spent the work week at her job in Tulia and weekends in Amarillo with some of her girl friends. During this time Nadine met her husband, Bob, while stopped at a light on Polk Street in Amarillo, where he was stationed at the Air Base. After Bob completed his military commitment, Bob and Nadine were engaged. Bob then headed back to San Diego, where he received his first college degree. After paying off her bills, Nadine followed him in February 1969 and stayed with his sister, Theresa, for the few months prior to their wedding.

Nadine converted to Catholicism before their wedding on July 12, 1969. She loved the Catholic traditions, ceremony and thought process. She worked as a Title Officer, while putting Bob through college, until their first born child, Penney, came along in 1974 followed by their son, Robert Jr. (Rob) in 1976. In September 1976, the family packed up and moved to Plano, Texas then to their current home in Richardson in January 1977. Shortly after, the family began attending St. Joseph Catholic Church.

Nadine stayed home with the children when they were young. She was a fabulous mom, encouraging her children to do their best and being an active participant in their lives including 10 years as a Girl Scout co-leader. After both children were in elementary school full time she volunteered at Yale Elementary and received several volunteer awards as well as a life time membership to the PTA.

At this time she started work on her accounting degree and, after completing it, began working part time which allowed her to be home when the children were home. As the children moved on to junior high and high school she switched to working full time.

Nadine was an assistant Girl Scout leader for years urging her daughter Penney to get her Gold award, which she did. Nadine took the Girl Scouts on many campouts and trips allowing them to begin experiencing the wonders of Christ's creation.

Nadine passed the test to become an Enrolled Agent, certified by the IRS. She was qualified to do taxes for any state.

Nadine enjoyed cooking and trying new recipes on dinner guests. Almost everything she cooked was delicious including the new recipes. She hosted a mystery dinner as a gift for St. Joseph Women's Guild for several years and always enjoyed the help for her fellow Women's Guild friends and the excitement of the participants at the mystery dinner.

She spent many years on the Parish Council at St. Joseph Church and was asked to start up the Stewardship Committee which she chaired for many years.

Nadine began playing volleyball at St. Joseph's the spring of 1980 and played almost every season. She loved playing volleyball and talking with her friends.

Nadine was a Eucharistic Minister for years and greatly enjoyed presenting the Body and Blood of Christ to the parishioners.

While in her 40's Nadine told Bob that she had never been east of the Mississippi River so their travels began. He took her to New Orleans for a week end prior to a convention he was attending; according to her this didn't really count as being east of the Mississippi. The next year they visited Boston, New Hampshire and Maine.

For her 50th birthday they went to Southern Germany (Bavaria region), Austria and Switzerland, spending her 50th birthday in Lucerne, Switzerland with a trip to the top of Mt. Titus where Bob threw a snow ball at her.

In September 2009, she quit her full-time office job and opened her own bookkeeping service allowing her to travel more while keeping her bookkeeping and tax work going, which she loved to do. She turned in her resignation the 1st of September and gave a 30 day notice, she reminded them she was on vacation the last two weeks of September and would be back her last day of work.

Nadine took walks whenever she could to make sure she was in shape for the walking and hiking on her trips. She enjoyed snorkeling when she went to Hawaii and the Caribbean. She loved animals of all kinds, sea or land, even the human kind.

Over the last 15 years she has had the fortune of exploring the world that GOD created with its many wonders. She and Bob have traveled to over 30 countries including most of the US, central America, Bahamas, St. Thomas, China, most of Europe, the UK including Scotland and Ireland, southern and eastern Africa, Peru, Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands, Australia and New Zealand to mention a few.

Although Nadine has traveled to over 30 countries, her favorite trip was to Southern and Eastern Africa. The people were very friendly and animals magnificent. She even ate grubs with greens and peanut butter.

Nadine had 4 trips planned when she got sick just prior to her death. She was going to visit (Trip 1) Easter Island, Patagonia and Iguazu Falls, (Trip 2) Barcelona, Spain, Morocco and Portugal, (Trip 3) Victoria Island, Alaska through the inner passage, Denali and a flight inside the Arctic Circle to see the Northern Lights and (Trip 4) Antarctica, the only continent she hadn't traveled to.

Nadine was one of the most wonderful and kind individuals anyone could ever know. She loved life and everything that went along with it, especially the people. She said in her dying bed: "Tell everyone that I love them even if I don't know them."

Everyone loves Nadine and she loves them, may she have a wonderful and peaceful time in Heaven.
AMEN and GOD Bless everyone.
