In the news yesterday was a sad story about Polish Hill resident Nadine Smiley, who was found dead on Ruthven Street, just outside the home in which she was raised. Nadine was 56 and a health care worker. Her sister-in-law was quoted in an interview with WTAE saying that Nadine was “just a really good person”.
Autopsy results aren’t in yet, but thus far there is no indication of foul play. If we find out more we will post again. Til then, we send our condolences to Nadine’s family on their loss.
Nadine was a good friend, having known her half of my life I remember how much she loved the Polish Hill neighborhood that she was raised in.
She will always be in my heart and my prayer go out to her children and family.
She will be missed dearly.
my name is curtis and nadine was like my aunt and her brother jimj is like my father and my prayers goes out to them
This sad story has touched so many residents, even if they didn’t know Nadine. Many people in Polish Hill are thinking of her.
We hope that her family can find out what happened and have some peace with this. Our thoughts are with them as well.
