Nadene was born April 25, 1918, to E.M. and Ethel Robison, in Lothair, Mont.

She attended grade school in Lothair and graduated from Chester High School. She then attended Deaconess School of Nursing. Upon graduating as a licensed practical nurse, she worked at Sacred Heart and Deaconess hospitals and later for Dr. N.A. Franken.

She married Jack Larson on Dec. 17, 1938, in Havre. They made their home in Havre until 1946, when they moved north of Havre to farm. In 1949, they built a new home in Highland Park and moved back to Havre.

In 1972, they moved east of Chinook, where they raised livestock and hay. The couple retired and returned to Havre in 1981.

Nadene was a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Ladies Auxiliary and served as a deacon and faithful member of the First Presbyterian Church. She enjoyed gardening, crosswords, fishing, playing cards and watching all sports and was an avid bowler until the age of 85.

In May 1996 she was inducted into the Montana Women's Bowling Hall of Fame.

She was a caring woman with a giving and loving nature and had a true zest for life. She was quick-witted with a twinkle in her eyes. Her wonderful outlook on life gave many years of happiness, not only to her, but to all those who surrounded and loved her. She is a beautiful mother, grandmother and friend who will be deeply missed.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Jack, in 1998; her son, Steve, in 1986; her sisters, Louise Blake, Ardyce Swank and Elaine Robison; great-grandson, Britt Mattinson; and great-granddaughter, Izabella King.
