"Nadine MacDonald passed away last week after a long illness. She remained upbeat throughout her ordeal and continued to produce her handmade ceramic marbles when she was able to. Some of her work is available here at The Land Of Marbles. She was talented beyond words and will be missed by all who knew and loved her."

Best wishes and prayers for Nadine's family and many friends at this time.

To have known Nadine was to have been a lucky observer of a life fully spent.

I always got a kick out of the fact that Nadine credited me with her 1st big sale. That was at one of Bert Cohen's show in 1995. I've always favored her classical ceramic china style marbles although her Tiffany and English China marbles were no slouches.

I literally have a stack of Nadine's letters! She was a wit extraordinaire and had an outrageous take on life.

You had to steel yourself on entering Nadine & George's home as Nadine knew STUFF. She told me once that a couple friends found themselves hyperventilating and found it necessary to step outside. Focusing was too much of a challenge for them!

While in New England for a couple months in 2007 during a 50th High School Reunion I spent 3 days on the Cape with Nadine and George touring favorite spots, watching racy movies in the evenings and talking STUFF. Our mutual friends Kathy & Linda of AAGPBL fame came down one day and we retired to the Yacht Club to talk marbles, women's baseball, good food and life. It doesn't get any better.

Nadine made my life that much more meaningful and I will miss her deeply.
