B. Nadine Leggett, age 93, of Bowerston, Ohio, died early Saturday morning, March 2, 2019 in the Community Hospice Truman House at New Philadelphia following a brief illness.
She was born July 27, 1925 in Sherrodsville, Ohio and was the daughter of the late Herman and Ida Pearl Randal Wright. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Jay C. Leggett, who died June 25, 2015, a sister Naomi Wright Weidleman and a brother Randal Wright.
Nadine retired from The Timken Company at Canton, Ohio after 40 years of service as a statistical secretary. On September 10, 1955, she married Jay Conway Leggett and together they lived in Dover, Ohio for 35 years after they married until they settled in their home just outside of Leesville. Throughout the course of their married life, Jay and Nadine Leggett were virtually inseparable. She attended the First Presbyterian Church at Uhrichsville, Ohio and was a 1943 graduate of the former Sherrodsville High School. Other than the time she spent engaged in activities with Jay, Nadine's passion was working outside in her yard and rock garden at her Leesville home. She was very adept at crocheting, which proved to be one of Nadine's favorite hobbies. She will be missed by her family, neighbors, and friends.
She is survived by two nieces, two nephews, and a cousin.
