Cindrich, Nadine M.

January 29, 1943 — January 12, 2022

Nadine Marie (Smith) Cindrich, 78, of Lee’s Summit Missouri passed away January 12, 2022.

Nadine was born on January 29, 1943 in Salem, Arkansas to Archie & Margarete Smith. She went to Salem High School and graduated in 1961. Nadine spent many mornings, and evenings, milking cows and working in the garden.

On June 25th 1962, Nadine left the family farm to move to Kansas City, Missouri and went to work at Montgomery Ward, where she worked for 39 years until they closed in 2001. A short time after moving to Kansas City, Nadine was “set up” with Michael Cindrich. The two married on November 8th, 1964. On July 19th, 1965 they welcomed their pride and joy, Kevin. Together they made a home in Parkville, Missouri raising Kevin and a plentiful garden.

As a family, they enjoyed gardening, casinos, horse races and going to the orchard for fresh fruit. Following Mike’s passing in 2004, Nadine moved to Lee’s Summit, Missouri to be closer to Kevin, Renee & Kelsey. Her home was meticulously cared for, as was her yard full of beautiful flowers. She loved hosting family dinners and cooking fried chicken! She went to lunch monthly with her Ward’s retiree friends and loved how they’d all kept in touch for 60+ years!

Throughout her life, Nadine always enjoyed gardening and cooking. Not a day went by when there wasn’t something in the oven or on the stove! She canned all of her fresh vegetables (240 quarts this past summer!) and made the BEST spaghetti sauce! Nadine’s passion was most definitely giving. She shared fresh vegetables with family and friends and made beautiful dessert trays (over 40!) that she delivered to friends and family every Christmas.

Organizing the Isenhower Family Reunion in Salem, Arkansas was the highlight of her summer. She enjoyed catching up with family who travel in from all over to spend time together. Twice a year she traveled to Branson with all her “crazy” cousins and went on to Jonesboro to soak up more family time! The traveling didn’t stop there, as they ventured out to Tunica for some penny slots!

Nadine is preceded in death by her husband Michael Cindrich; parents, Archie and Margarete Smith; brother, Galen Smith; Renee’s parents, Raymond and Neoma Beatty. She is survived by son Kevin Cindrich and wife Renee (Beatty); granddaughter Kelsey (Cindrich) Barber and husband Luke; great-granddaughter Brielle Renee Barber; brother Larry Smith and wife Trish; and many, many cousins and friends.

So glad to have been a cousin to Nadine, even though she was quite a bit older, I still loved her and enjoyed the few times we got to see each other. Hope to see you again over on the other side where there will be no more goodbyes!! Love you!!

Allen and Jennifer Smith

As a member of the Isenhower family, I am so sorry to hear of Nadine's illness and passing. She was such a strong force in the Isenhower family as an organizer and supporter of our family. We all enjoyed her efforts each year in Salem as all the aunts and uncles, and cousins would meet and enjoy all of the wonderful dishes we shared. We will miss her. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
