Kler and cherished, devoted mother to Karl Alan Kler (Deniece), Kathleen Anne Kler (David Haakenson, deceased), Kristine Annette Ferrill (Gregg), and Karen Adell Schneider (Jim). Precious grandmother to Jennifer, Ryan, Nathan, Aaron, Haakon, Kimberly, Alyson and Emily;Greatgrandmother to 17 and great-greatgrandmother to 2; cousin, aunt, friend, mentor to multitudes.
Preceded in death by her parents and siblings Oleta Weber, Arthur Meisner and Daun Meisner.
She attended Windsor High and graduated from Gill High School, and then went to Colorado State College of Education (now UNC) and joined Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. Before marriage to Julian, January 1947, she worked as a telephone operator.
Nadine excelled as a homemaker, seamstress and hostess in the 16 different places the family lived, following Julian's army and AT&T careers, returning back to Greeley in 1982. She was the anchor and compass for the family as Julian traveled extensively for his job.
She treasured her lasting friendships from her extensive circle of cousins, Luther League and Assistance League Bargain Box. Both Nadine and Julian were members of Our Savior's Lutheran Church. Nadine's soprano voice, along with her sister Oleta's alto, graced many weddings and the radio in their early years in Greeley; her lovely voice rang clear and true in every church choir, as well as sing-alongs at Grace Point, her final home with Julian where she was friend, mentor and constant sunshine. Both Nadine and Julian were supported with unwavering love and attention by their family through the changes in their later years. Nadine was surrounded in her final days by Julian, holding her hand, their devoted family and the staff at Grace Point. Our world will not be the same without her.
The family has gratitude for all the care and love from the Grace Point staff and family, Dr. John Ebens and the UCHealth team, Pathways Hospice, and Pastors John Knutson, John Kreidler and Cindy Wolf.
