Dora Nadine ‘Momma Duckie’ Charles lost her battle with aggressive breast cancer On February 19, 2019.

Nadine was born on December  26, 1957 and was the first born to Bert and Lavina Charles (nee Jones). She is survived by 3 sisters and 2 brother as well her triple J’s, daughters Jennifer and Julia(Chris) and grand-daughter Ja’Lanie.

Nadine was a beautiful, loving, and warm hearted person who was always there to give a squishy hug and offer loving positive words. She was proud of her heritage and lived her life to honor our history and culture. She opened her heart and home to everyone and was a foster parent to many, she loved each and every one of her foster kids and wanted the best for everyone she cared about.

Nadine enjoyed helping children in school, teaching and learning our traditional language and spent a lot of time writing her own poetry. She also enjoyed music and could be found spending hours recording her favorite songs from record to cassette tapes. Nadine loved nothing more than spending time with family and friends. We invite you to celebrate her life and share your stories at her prayer service.

Thank you, Gabrielle Warren
