Nadine will be missed for sure! Not only was she a grandmother to my friends but she also taught craft lessons for 4-H at her Beaver Bungalow or house. My mom would take us to the bungalow just to look at all of her neat crafty treasures. She was such a sweet lady. Every time I pass her former home place, I think of her.
