Nadine loved her family and was an expert seamstress who enjoyed making clothing for herself, her family and others. She taught adult education sewing classes in Dumas, during the 1960s. Nadine was an avid collector of ceramic roosters and polyester fabric.
In addition to her first husband, Nadine was preceded in death by her parents.
