Nadine was born January 27, 1928 in Siler City to Floyd E. and Delilah (Ward) Womble, the youngest of 10 siblings. She grew up in Siler City and graduated from Siler City High School in 1944. After a brief period working at the B. C. Moore's department store in Siler City, Nadine found her true calling in the banking profession. She worked at the original Chatham Bank (now Wells Fargo) in Siler City for more than 35 years as a bookkeeper and received numerous recognition awards for her outstanding performance and customer service. She married Clyde C. Short in 1957 and they shared their wonderful life together in and near Siler City until his death in 2005. Nadine was a lifetime member of Loves Creek Baptist Church where she enjoyed singing in their choir as well as participating in the Missionary Circle. Her love for singing was also reflected in the many years she participated in the Golden Jubilee Choir. Nadine was an avid bowler and could always be counted on to be a steady and skilled team member.

She is also survived by her sisters-in-law, Josephine Short Pike and Hilda Short both of Siler City; as well as several cherished nephews and nieces.
