Nadine Magdalene Hearting, daughter of Henry and Josephine (Brandt) Witte, was born November 21, 1912 near Appleton City, Missouri. Nadine passed away at the AC Manor on June 1, 2017 at the age of 104 years, six months. At the time of her death, she was the oldest St. Clair County resident. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church from infancy, being confirmed on May 1, 1927. She attended Centennial School east of Appleton City for grades 1-6 and the Trinity Lutheran Christian Day-School in Appleton City for grades 7-8. With the exception of a very short time spent being employed in Kansas City, Nadine has spent her entire life in the Appleton City/Rockville areas.

Nadine grew up on a farm 5 miles east of Appleton City on the present- day HWY AA. On August 31, 1934, at the age of 22, Nadine was married to Charles Hearting. They moved to a farm located south of Appleton City where they lived until they retired from farming and moved into town. Nadine was a resident at the AC Manor for several years preceding her death. The staff had commented many times on Nadine’s great sense of humor and her ability to entertain them with her verbal responses.

Nadine received great joy from working in her yard and garden. She was so happy to share and trade flower starts with her neighbors as well as to share garden produce. Her huge flower garden was always greatly enjoyed by her neighbors. She and Charles especially enjoyed raising strawberries. Nadine continued caring for her flowers and small garden until the age of 95. Nadine was also a very active member in the Lutheran Church Ladies Aid and Bible Study.

Nadine was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Charles, and two sisters, Edna Hearting and Alverta Rodick.

Charles and Nadine had no children. Nadine is survived by and will be missed by many nieces and nephews.
