She was born on Feb. 15, 1928, in Berwyn, Oklahoma, to Commodore and Lela (Nix) Conway.
Nadean grew up around the Ardmore, Oklahoma, area. Even at 6 years old, she was expected to help on the farm, taking water to those working the fields. Growing up during the Great Depression, she learned to be frugal.

After moving to Wyoming, Nadean was part of the Garland community for a number of years. She helped raise chickens, pigs and cows. She enjoyed cooking, trying out new recipes, and how to cook deer and other game in various ways. She took on a big change in her mid-30s. She completed beauty school. The family moved south of Powell in 1968, the same year she opened Nadean’s Beauty Shop. Nadean made many friends in her beauty shop.
She and her husband Gwynn enjoyed camping and fishing especially up in the North Fork.
