Obituary of Benadine Nadeau

Benadine Frye was born April 24, 1924 in Middlesboro, Kentucky.

Above anything, family was most important to Benadine. She relished the time she spent with her husband, exploring the great outdoors of Pennsylvania, where they had a home. In her healthy years, she enjoyed the warm sun in Inverness, Florida while also taking up residency for a while.

She received her divine nourishment by attending Monroe Full Gospel Church, Monroe, Michigan. When she was not feeding her spiritual appetite, she was frequenting the restaurants in the Monroe area to nurture her body. She did not have a favorite establishment, so she enjoyed eating at anyplace that offered fish,shrimp and Prime Rib.
