Central, SC

Nadine Dixon Broadwell, 86, widow of Wayne C. Broadwell passed away on Tuesday, December 20, 2011 at the Sterling House, formerly of 606 W. Fredericks Street, Anderson. Nadine was born on May 8, 1925 in Greenwood, South Carolina, the youngest of nine children of the late Charles Wesley Dixon and Ola Eunice Burkett Dixon. Nadine was a remarkable woman. Married in 1942, she and Wayne shared 67 years together. In 1962, Nadine fulfilled a life time dream and became a licensed practical nurse. She worked in Anderson for the late Dr. Henry Jordan and the Anderson Hospital System. After her children finished college, Nadine went back to school and graduated in 1974 from Greenville Technical College with an associate degree in nursing. She continued her education at Anderson College (University) taking courses as she could. She continued to work at AnMed Medical Center until her retirement. She loved her profession, took pride in keeping up with her field, and loved trips to Atlanta to purchase nursing and medical textbooks at a specialty store. Nadine was an avid bowler and enjoyed league play in Anderson for many years. She bowled as often as she could each week. She enjoyed her tournament travel to different parts of South Carolina and across the U.S. Nadine enjoyed life. She was a wonderful mother and taught her children her love of life and giving.

Surviving Nadine are her daughter, Debbie Broadwell Jackson and son-in-law, Vince Jackson of Clemson, granddaughter, Katie Jackson, of Warner Robbins, Georgia, sister, Lila Mae Hurt of Newberry, and her in-laws: William and Juanita Broadwell, George and Sara Broadwell, Myrtle Bishop, Joe and Lena Hopkins. Nadine has numerous nieces and nephews, some of whom were her age. She loved that she was younger than some. She was especially close to Lorene Cole and Jeanne and Phil Campbell; but she loved all of her family.

Nadine was predeceased by her husband, Wayne; her son, Michael R. Broadwell; and her granddaughter, Stacey Jackson; and her brothers and sisters: Charles Dixon, Dan Dixon, Dempsie McCord, Lovis Cobb, Pauline Bell, Teresa Scott, and Ola Carlay.

Nadine was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church and Susanna Wesley Circle in Anderson. The family is at the home of her daughter, Debbie Jackson, in Clemson. Flowers will be accepted or donations may be made to the Rainey Hospice House of the Upstate, 1835 Rogers Road in Anderson or the Sterling House 131 Vickery Drive in Central.
