Nadine ‘Nickie’ (Smith) Peters ~ Sept. 4, 1927 – Jan. 22, 2013

Nadine ‘Nickie’ (Smith) Peters, Sept. 4, 1927 – Jan. 22, 2013

Born 85 years ago, on Sept. 4, 1927, Burnett Pat and Mina Martha Newhouse Smith welcomed baby daughter, Nadine, to their Malad, Idaho, family. Nadine joined her older siblings Wallace Edgar, Eva Mae and Mina Adrienne. High school activities included roles in drama, a soprano singing voice and band drum/percussionist. She was “Nickie” to friends and family.

Nickie met a handsome gentleman from Clifton, Idaho, Elmer “Pete” Peters. They were married Sept. 23, 1946, in Las Vegas, Nev., and moved to Evanston to establish their business, “Pete’s Roc-n-Rye” Club. They provided a home of love for their only child, Christina (“Trinkie”), and a comfortable gathering place for family and friends.

In public service, Nickie assisted in establishing the first Girl Scout troop in Evanston/Uinta County. She served in leadership roles for both the Evanston Fine Arts and Mason clubs, volunteered in programs for the prevention of Rheumatic Fever, hospital lab work and taught craft and art therapy as a Grey Lady at the Wyoming State Hospital.

Privately, it made her happy to help many young people in educational endeavors with gifts of tuition or cash for recognition of hard work and service. Particular joy came in helping both grandsons — Ryan and Ben — with down payments for purchase of their homes, and later an expansion of the family cabin (“The Poore House”) in the Uinta Mountains.

On Jan. 22, 2013, Nickie passed from this physical life. As many have said, she was one-of-a-kind in her humor, love and intelligence. Her traits and memories remain with those who survive her: daughter, Christina Peters Poore and son-in-law Ross; treasured grandsons Ryan Patrick and Benjamin Aaron, and their lovely ladies, Cindy and Tiffany; one spunky great-grandson, Riley Patrick (Riley Pup); and nieces and nephews who were loved by their Aunt Nadine.

There will be no services. Her cremains (and those of Pete’s) will be combined and scattered together. When you see 11:11 on your clock, think of Nickie and know that is “loving-loving” time, and she is sending you a hug.

Condolences may be sent to the family at www.aaronsmortuary.com.
