Janice “Nadine” Bradley, 71, of Kingman, Arizona, died on March 23 in her home. A celebration of life will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 14, at the Long Creek School gymnasium, followed by a graveside service in Fox Valley Cemetery officiated by Ed Studtmann. A lunch will be held at the Seventh-day Adventist Hall in Long Creek following the service. Nadine was born Oct. 18, 1946, in Goldendale, Washington, to Clarence and Berenice Austin. She married Thomas Bradley on June 25, 1966, in Goldendale.
They lived in the Seattle area for five years before settling down in Long Creek in 1977. She took on cleaning houses until the children were almost grown. Then she worked at the Long Creek School as the chef.
She loved to bake pies, cobblers and cookies. She would play Bunco and card games such as shanghai or pinochle with friends. She loved eating at Monument Senior Center, John Day Senior Center and Prairie City Senior Center while visiting with friends. She had a smile for everyone with a boisterous laugh. Her other favorite was to yell out “stop!” and back up then laugh when you would jump in the driver seat because she saw huckleberries alongside the road.
She is survived by her sister Patricia Griffin; children Sheila (Reggie) McDonald of Snohomish, Washington, Thomas Bradley of Mercer Island, Washington, Treva Bradley of Phoenix, Arizona, Tucker Bradley of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Heather (Rommel) Velasco-Bradley of Kingman, Arizona; and seven grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas Bradley; and brother Mike Austin.
