NADINE MARIE "BROOKS" GLEASON passed away from Cancer. She died in the arms of her daughter, "Doni" Boren Mallory, at Doni's home, where Nadine was being cared for.

Nadine's wish was to never be put in a "Nursing Home" or a "Hospital" in her last days, and also without any artificial medical assistance or life-support. She also wanted to die a "natural" death without Chemo Therapy or radiation treatments. Years ago, Nadine had made the decision to "donate" her body to Medical Science, in which, after her passing, she was transfered to The Idaho State University Anatomical Donation Program, in Pocatello, IDAHO for Cancer research.

Upon her passing at her daughter Doni's home, Doni "prepared" Nadine's body (with help from a few Hospice helpers) for the Mortuary & University herself. It was with great honor & love, that Doni willingly dressed & applied make-up and styled her beloved Mother's hair after Nadine's death. Nadine "laid in state" in her daughter's home for (4) hours, as Nadine's personal wish was to have no Funeral or Memorial services.

Once Idaho State University is accomplished with their research & studies on Nadine's body, she will be interned in Mountain View Cemetery (Ronan) in Lake County; Ronan, Montana, where she was born. She will be laid to rest beside many other Family relatives & Ancestors there.

She leaves behind her beloved children, many grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, and her only remaining sister, Virginia Ann "Brooks" Bell of Columbia Falls, Montana, and many nieces & nephews.

Nadine was a very devout Christian woman, and beloved by all who knew her...

Nadine's remains were finally returned to her Family (2) years later on Aug. 21, 2008 where she was interned in the "Calvary" section of Ronan Cemetery in Lake County Montana. Here headstone was built & placed on Sept. 27, 2008.



"Come to the edge, He said.
They said: We are afraid.
Come to the edge, He said.
They came. He pushed them,
And they flew..."
