Nadine spent her youth in Salt Lake City and attended Jackson Jr. High, West High School and the University of Utah. She was an excellent violinist and performed at events throughout the Salt Lake valley. She participated in many school musicals, social clubs, cheerleading and LDS seminary.

In 1950 Nadine married her eternal companion, Franklin Nelson Davis, in the Salt Lake Temple. They have been constant companions – traveling the world and enjoying family. They loved tennis and vacations on the beach in California. She and her family also enjoyed raising and showing their Arabian horses throughout the West.

Nadine served in many capacities and leadership positions in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and especially loved teaching the youth. She was a companion to her husband from 1990 to 1993 in the Ohio, Cleveland Mission where Frank served as Mission President. Nadine and Frank loved their missionaries. Nadine was always valiant in her testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. She constantly served others in her family, neighborhood and volunteer organizations. She was a wonderful example of faith, obedience and unconditional love to all who knew her.

Nadine loved her family and they were always her greatest joy. She is survived by her children: Ann (Jerry) Williams, Jean (Scott) Erkelens and Lee (Jenny) Davis. Her descendants also include ten grandchildren and thirty great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, parents, siblings: Jane Welch, Jack Seare and Kaye Imlay, and beloved granddaughter, Jami.
