Nadine was born July 15,1937 in Garland, Utah to Horace Stephen Rose and Ruth Alice Sederholm Rose. She was raised and educated in Garland and attended Bear River High School.

At each of these locations, she made many life-long friends.

She was a life-long, faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints serving in many capacities in branches, wards, districts, and stakes. She served in primary, young women, and relief society organizations and worked in family history for many years.

After Mike’s retirement they moved to Centerville, Utah. After 8 years, they then moved to Smithfield where they have resided for the past 21 years. She and Mike have enjoyed traveling throughout the US plus taking 5 cruises and several other tours worldwide.
