Nadine was born on Sept.  17, 1947 in Salina to Victor and Lela (Garst) Deegan.  She married her loving husband, Robert Wayne Martindale on Sept.  1, 1965 and recently celebrated their 52nd anniversary.  They spent the next several years traveling the globe while Robert served in the Air Force.  In 1979, the couple moved to Wichita and then later made their permanent home in Augusta in 1981.  Nadine spent many years in the service industry in Augusta before becoming a full-time homemaker in 1988.  Along the way she made many friends, created many smiles, played “Mom” to too many to count and always brought joy to everyone she encountered.  Nadine enjoyed every aspect of life, always joking in the funniest ways, and lived life to the fullest.  She was lovingly known as "Mema" to her grandchildren.
She is survived by: her husband of 52 years, Robert W. Martindale of Augusta;  her sons, Robby (Christina) Martindale, Randy (Debbie) Martindale, and Ricky (Felicia) Martindale; 14 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren; brothers, Alan Deegan of Junction City, Dennis Deegan of Eureka; sister, Rhonda Syrna of Salina. 
She will be forever missed.  We all know she is now peacefully resting in the Heavens.
