Camden-Nadine P. Carle, 78, of Venice, FL, died July 3, 2011.  Nadine P. Carle was born March 3, 1933 in LaPorte, Indiana to Alfred C. and Willo B. Pease. She attended LaPorte schools and nurse's training in Chicago. She married George E. Carle Oct. 25, 1952 and moved with him to his hometown of Camden, N.Y. lovingly making it her home for 52 years. While homemaking and mothering she assisted George with the family monument and ready-mix concrete business. After a strong forty-one year partnership George died in 1993.
     Artistically gifted, Nadine attended Munson Williams Proctor Institute and Syracuse University, becoming a renowned painter, sculptor and teacher. Nadine was a vital woman of beauty, humor and intelligence. She loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, valuing each of them.
     Seeking warmer climates, Nadine moved to Venice, Fla. in 2004, continuing her art and making many warm friendships. In Florida she met Bob Schroeder, her loving and loyal companion and friend.
      Nadine enjoyed traveling the world but was always actively enriching her home community via such organizations as the Trinity Church, PTA, Carriage House Museum, Philomathic Club, Town Zoning Board, Camden Library Board, Camden and Venice Rotary, Rome Art and Community Center, Utica Art League, Community Arts Council of Oneida County and Venice Art Center.  She was the first woman to serve on the Vestry of Camden Trinity Church and a member and president of St. Margaret’s Guild.  She was also the first female president of the Camden Rotary Club and spearheaded the rebuilding of the Village Bandstand in 2003.  For 30 years, she taught in her own Nadine Carle Studio, as well as for Adult Programs at Camden Central School and Children’s Playground Programs.  She exhibited her work throughout Central New York, nationally and internationally.  Several times she was selected to do commemorative art for the community of Camden. She was a founding member of the Mah Jong "Illegals" and active in book clubs.
     Wise and light-hearted, Nadine would choose to be remembered with joy. She taught us to see, appreciate and imagine.
     Nadine is survived by daughter Katherine Carle & Nick Mancini, sons George & Beth, Scott & Theresa and Christopher & Yvonne, eight grandchildren, four great grandchildren, and Bob.
     Memorial Service will be held Wednesday, July 13, 2011, 3:00 p.m., at the Trinity Episcopal Church, Camden. There are no calling hours.  Private interment Forest Lawn Cemetery.  Arrangements are under the direction of the LaRobardiere Funeral Home, Inc., 109 Main Street, Camden, NY.
     Family and friends are invited to continue the celebration of Nadine’s life, 5:00 p.m. at Katie and Karl’s Restaurant, Camden.

I met your Mom through line dancing back in the 90's. I was new to the area and we carpooled together along with Kay, Linda and Connie. She was a lot of fun and it was a pleasure to have known her. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

I took lessons from Nadine quite a few years ago when I lived in Vienna. She was so welcoming to me and I learned a lot from her. I unfortunately couldn't stick with the lessons very long.
I am sorry for your loss, but very glad that I had the chance to meet Nadine.
Sincerely, Lynne Swayze
