Nadine was born November 23, 1966 to Leroy and Burma (Hagenson) Likness in Aberdeen.  She grew up in Hecla, graduating from Hecla High School with the class of 1985.

Nadine married David Waite on July 20, 1985 in Hecla.  They made their home on a farm near Guelph, ND.  In 1987 she moved to Aberdeen and in 1991 she built a house in Warner, SD.  Nadine worked at Avera St. Luke’s Hospital and in 1996 she started CMW Cleaning Service.  She operated this business until May 25, 2019 when her health forced her to retire.  She had been fighting cancer since 2001.  Nadine found her true significant other when she met Tom in 2002 and they have shared a loving relationship since.

Nadine was a good friend to many and very faithful to them.  She loved playing with her grandchildren and looked forward to every weekend trip that she could spend with them.  She loved to go fishing and ending the evening with a great bonfire.  Nadine kept busy working and enjoying bowling and softball leagues.  Her business CMW Cleaning Service sponsored many teams over the years.  Nadine was a member of St. John Lutheran Church in Warner.
