Nadine Barrows, 91, passed away on Monday, December 9, 2013, after a year-long battle with congestive heart failure. Nadine was born on April 14, 1922, in Los Angeles, CA. She had moved to Wenatchee in 1998. As a young adult, she had a promising career as a stage and chorus dancer, which included many auditions for Hollywood musicals. At the outset of WWII, Nadine took a job with the Douglas Aircraft Co. In the early days of the War, Nadine met her husband-to-be, John. They initially lived in Bishop, CA, where they started their family, and later moved to Victorville, CA. The family moved to Seattle’s Eastside in 1967. Although she considered herself a homemaker, her passion was spending time playing golf and bridge with her many friends from the country club. And her fondest memories were from the numerous trips she shared with John, while the two traveled to many wonderful places around the globe.
Nadine is survived by her son, Tom and daughter-in-law, Judy, both of Wenatchee; grandchildren, Ryan of New York City, Allison of Mission Viejo, CA, Corey, Cameron and Connor, all of Wenatchee. She was preceded in death by her husband, John; brother, Richard; sister, Beverly; and sons, Richard and Steven.
