Obituary

Nadine Lynn Haslem / AKA Joanelle Lynnae Cameron (her birth name was Nadine, but she changed her name later.

On August 29 2020, Our dear sweet Nadine passed from this mortal existence into the arms of her Heavenly Parents and our wonderful parents, Acel and Oral Haslem, who have waited many long years to hold their daughter.

Nadine was born to loving parents November 30 1949. She was dearly loved and cared for. Her sweet mother read Bible stories and stories from the Book of Mormon which served to build the foundation of Nadine's faith and increased her spiritual understanding.

Nadine was a happy, sweet, quiet, beautiful little girl. Little blonde curls framed her sweet little face. When we played our childhood chase games, Nadine was always the one that the little boys wanted to chase. Nadine was my best little friend, and I followed her around, no doubt learning from her. I remember one day our mother wasn't happy when we bathed our dollies in the toilet! Dollies need a bath - don't they?

As little girls, Mom and dad let Nadine and I take dance lessons, later as preteens on we took piano lessons and Nadine became skilled as a pianist, a talent which she appreciated even in her last year of life.
As a little girl, Nadine had Asthma. I remember well the worry of my mother over Nadine's health. On one occasion Mom and Dad gave her a new (and very coveted) little purse with pretend cosmetics just to make her feel happier that day. How they loved their little girl!

Nadine was by nature reserved and never did make the effort to seek out friends. As she grew, she kept her quiet, shy nature. She loved being immersed in books and her favorite journal where she recorded all her joys and sorrows.

Nadine as a teenager was Valiant, always true to the Faith! As the styles of the day changed and the skirts became shorter, Nadine's hemlines never did change. Nadine's church talks were praise worthy, and she was given much praise by the adults in our ward who admired her excellence and scholarly thought.

Nadine spent many hours studying in her room. She always mastered the High Honor Roll and was given the praise and the incentive money from a proud mother when she returned home. Her emphasis in life seemed to be to strive to excel in everything she did. As a sister I followed Nadine in some of her classes. More than one of her teachers would light up when they found out I was her sister. "Oh, you are Nadine Haslem's sister, then I know you will do well!"

Nadine became an excellent seamstress and made a beautiful white sparkly formal to wear to an event in her last high school years.

Nadine served a mission to Texas for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She had a great love for the gospel of Jesus Christ. After she returned home, she graduated from Brigham Young University with a teaching degree and moved to Oregon to begin teaching. Eventually she returned home and our good parents helped her buy a home in the Orem Utah area.

About this time Nadine met and married Jim Alexander. They lived for a time in Utah Valley. They became the proud parents of Nathan Alexander.
Nathan was a sweet baby. One of the great sorrows of Nadine's life was that they found out that their sweet little Nathan had severe Autism. Nathan's Autism became a lifelong challenge, but Nadine became his devoted caretaker and served him with love. Nadine and Jim's relationship eventually dissolved under the stresses of their lives.

As time progressed, Nadine's life became troubled by mental illness, confusion and the conflict associated with it. Nadine alienated many of the people who truly did love her. Nadine "escaped" Utah, and went to California to live in an old small cabin in the Mountain, by herself. She raised Nathan alone in this circumstance. He passed away at the age of 21.
Nadine and Nathan had lived a secluded life, sometimes in very difficult trying circumstances. After Nathan died, Nadine's life became rather desperate.

Our brother, Keith Haslem was inspired, (no doubt prompted by our mother) to rescue Nadine from her difficult circumstance. The time finally came that local authorities deemed her home unsafe and she was taken to a local hospital. After a series of events she requested to come home to Utah and Keith and Sydney helped her make the move. We as a family will be ever grateful to Keith and Sydney Haslem for their help with Nadine. Thereafter Nadine had a comfortable, pleasant circumstance for the last couple of years of her life.

We as her siblings rejoiced in the opportunity to be with her once again. It was so wonderful to rebuild our friendship and love for her before she departed this earthly existence. Nadine passed from this mortal life on Saturday, August 29 where she undoubtedly was met with joy and rejoicing by those who love her most, her son Nathan, and our wonderful parents.

We, her siblings, love her, and are grateful that she has progressed into the Eternities where she will be well and happy and will undoubtedly be a great force for good in the progression of the Eternal Work of our Heavenly Father.
