Nadine Carol Egge Fradette Balenger Varona, 78, of Yorktown (Boston, VA), passed away on Sunday, October 24, 2021. She was a native of West Allis, Wisconsin. Nadine was of the Christian faith and an active volunteer in the church. After caring for and raising her family, she obtained her Masters degree in Pastoral Counseling at Bethlehem Christian University. She was dedicated to her work with the Crisis Pregnancy Center in Fredericksburg. The hobbies she truly enjoyed were baking and sewing, especially quilting, which she enjoyed sharing with others.
