Nadine was born the second of three girls to Art and Bonnie Scheer on February 16, 1935 and attended school in Prairie Center. She finished high school in Torrington, modeled clothing with her good friend Susie Swanson and worked at Mel’s News. She met and married Curtis Herdt and they had two children, Cindy (Herdt) Swanson and Tracy Page. They later divorced and she attended Eastern Wyoming College for a time. Later on, she worked for Montgomery Ward as a clerk and would unload freight in high heels and high fashion. She married Derald “D.W.” Page forming a blended family., She advanced her career by moving to Dr. Morgan’s eye clinic working as a bookkeeper and office manager. Larry Goddard purchased the clinic, and eventually sold the clinic to Grant Jones. She continued to work for several years.
Nadine enjoyed having a great time with family and friends. She was a member of the American Legion, Moose Club and Elks Club. She loved attending parties, being on a bowling league, golfing, dancing, boating, and skiing, entertaining, jewelry and bling, dressing to the nine’s and never leaving the house without her hair done and her “face on”. She was extremely happy to be baptized in Glendo Lake by the Cowboy Church Minister. For a time she lived between her cabin at Glendo Lake and Casper. Meadow winds Assisted Living would become her home in the end where she was always close to her family. She was an excellent bookkeeper, a perfectionist and lived life on her terms. She was independent, headstrong and had a sense of pride in herself. She was a lucky one. She did it her way all the way to the end. She was the boss.
