She attended Teacher’s College in Regina where she played in the college dance band and where she met the love of her life, Bob. After marrying Bob in 1962, a life of adventure and service ensued. Throughout their married life Nadia and Bob lived in various communities including Regina, Yellowknife, Vermilion, Cardston, Del Bonita and finally, for the past 41 years, Lethbridge. In each community she made a difference: In Yellowknife helping set up the first YM/YWCA and coaching figure skating. Since settling in Lethbridge, besides running a day home for preschoolers, teaching piano and having a 20-year career as a massage therapist, she organized Lethbridge’s first Rhubarb Festival, played saxophone in the community band, participated in the Raging Grannies, the Harambee Grandmothers, was a LSCO Board member, wrote stories for the grand kids and loved karaoke.

All that aside, she will be remembered as a fun-loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend who loved to blow bubbles, always putting the needs of others ahead of her own.
