Obituary: Ardelle Nadine Stevenson
December 17, 2012
Nadine passed away the early morning of Dec. 14th 2012 at her home with her husband, Robert of over 54 years, at her side.
She was loved by all and everyone she came in contact with in her life.
It was a full life where she raised 5 kids, nick-named “George”, Robert Jr. Timothy, Phillip, Cynthia and Mathew, along with 17 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren and
numerous adopted children and grandchildren plus an enormous amount of friends.
Nadine was born in Wynot, Neb. to the parents of Orren Arthur and Ethel Rose McClellan. Nadine met her long life sweetheart, Robert “Bob” Louis Stevenson Sr. rollerskating in Oakland Calif. Nadine and Bob have lived all over the Unites States, due to Bob being in the US Navy for over 20 years before settling in Wellington, Nev. 13 years ago.
She and her husband are part of many, many clubs, organizations and such. If there was a task that needed to be performed, she was the second to volunteer for that task. Okay, so she was the first if no one stepped up to work. Nadine was also versed in any subject matter that anyone would talk to her on. She would read anywhere from 5 to 12 books a week. Her real reading interest was biographies and auto-biographies. This type of reading helped her to earn her BS in political science.
If an angel is someone who’s filled with love, it’s a gift that they constantly share,
If an angel is someone who looks out for others and gives them a nudge here or there,
If on angel is someone who touches your life with a heart that’s both joyful and wise,
Then even though grandmothers may not have wings,
They’re angels in human disguise!
