Nadine was raised on a farm between La Harpe and Blandinsville. Her parents, Robert and Pauline Talbott are deceased.

Nadine graduated from La Harpe High School in 1974 and received a degree from Southeast Community College, Burlington, Iowa, in the Medical Assistant Program but attended classes in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.

She has one daughter, Emily, that lives in Stronghurst and is a dental assistant at the Stronghurst Clinic and one son, Bradley, that is a dispatcher for the Henderson County Sheriff's Office.

Her pride and joy is her grandson, Jacob Quigley, who is three years old.

She is a member of the United Methodist Church in Stronghurst and teaches an adult Sunday School Class.

She has fond memories of a vacation when she visited her dad's sister, in Virginia.

When the kids were younger she said they traveled to Chicago to see a couple of Chicago Cubs games because Mark Grace was her favorite player.
