Nadine Shafer, age 57, of Baltic, Ohio (New Bedford) died Wednesday night, May 24, 2017 in Aultman Hospital at Canton following a courageous battle with cancer.
She was born September 20, 1959 in Canton, Ohio and was the daughter of the late Marion L. and Lois E. Scott Fish. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by an infant sister Mary Virginia Fish.
For the past 28 years, Nadine worked as a registered nurse at East Holmes Family Care's Baltic office. Nadine was an active and faithful member of Countryside Chapel in Baltic since 1983. She could best be described as a charitable and selfless individual whose primary goal in life was to care for others. Service was her life. She served the Lord through missions trips and by being active in her church. She was also committed to serving her friends, family, and the community. Nadine was known as a highly skilled, compassionate, nurse who spent extra time with each of her patients. She enjoyed working on her flowers and yard outside.
