After graduating from Siena High School in Chicago, Illinois, Sister Nadine entered the Sisters of Mercy in Des Plaines, Illinois. Sister Nadine was a graduate of Saint Xavier College (now University) and the School of Applied Theology at the University of California.
Sister Nadine was a teacher, principal and administrator at several Chicago schools. Later, she became a pastoral associate at St. Charles Lwanga and Saint Martin de Porres Parishes, both in Chicago. She went on to become an administrator and coordinator at Mercy Manor Aurora.
Upon the celebration of her 60th Jubilee, Sister Nadine said that she depended on her motto, “Hope is my strength,” to help her address others’ needs.
West Midwest Leader Sister Margaret Mary Hinz said, “Ever since I met Nadine when I was a young Sister living at St. Anne’s, I witnessed her graciousness and willingness to assist and welcome others. She uplifted us with her wonderful gift of voice.”
Sister Nadine was a conscientious writer of notes for birthdays, celebrations and “get wells” and was once known for her singing. She remained a woman of multiple interests, including art, crocheting and visiting. She will be missed by many.Donate in memory of Sister Nadine Hargadon
