Nadine Hatcher

December 11, 1944 — May 26, 2022

Nadine, the second eldest of six children born to Bernadette Lewis & William Harold Edwards on December 11, 1944, in New York. Early on it was apparent that Nadine was an independent woman, determined to live her life her way. Nadine remained firm in her convictions and there was no changing her mind, hence she was tagged the nickname “Stonewall Jackson”.

Nadine did what many young women did during her era. She graduated high school and got married. Nadine graduated from Bay Ridge High School located in Brooklyn, NY. During the previous summer prior to graduation, she met and began a courtship with Marvin B. Hatcher, whom she later married. The union was blessed with 2 children, Tanya and Marvin. As Nadine continued to grow and experience life she traveled out of country. Years later she met and married her second husband, Gary Steinberg. She relocated to Montreal, Canada and this union was blessed with two children, James and Samuel Steinberg. After spending over 10 years in Canada, Nadine a true patriarch became “nostalgic” for life as remembered in the states.

Nadine returned to Brooklyn and did what she loved doing… raising her children, cleaning her house and working. Nadine was very straightforward even with her children. She believed that if you decide a course of action, you stick with it and deal with the consequence of your decision.

Nadine also spoke with joy about her life and had no regrets. “When it’s time for me to go, don’t be crying, I enjoyed my life” is what she would say. Nadine was very strict, and you knew she meant what she said, and you better do what she said.

For, Tanya, Marvin, James and Samuel (children) Heather, Zachary, Kaela and Khaya (grandchildren) King and Elaine (great-grandchildren) Beloved sister and best friend Leticia Edwards, Nadine will forever be missed.

And in closing a poem from her beloved sister Leticia

Blood of my blood

Soul of my soul

Heart of my heart

My precious Wonderful Diamond

Life tried to separate us

It failed

Surely the ghost of death

Will never ever separate us

Nothing will ever separate us

You will always be with me

And I always be with you eternally

Rest, Rest, Rest

Sleep, sleep, sleep

I am lost but I am found

When I think of all wonderful experiences together

We together for a lifetime

And nothing can take that away

You sleep on, and I live on

I can't say goodbye

Because your spirit says hello

And I know you are still with me

Forever, eternally yours
Your loving sister
