The model with a smile larger than life itself, Sadie-Leigh Grace Nabinger, age 19 of Tennessee, entered eternal rest on May 29, 2023.
An aspiring cosmetologist, Sadie loved all things pink, purple and aqua but, above all, she loved laughing and making memories with those she loved. With unwavering strength, she overcame a two and a half year battle with cancer, an impressive feat for a 19 year old. While determined on her own, Sadie faced this battle with her best friend and soul sister, Vivian Oettel. Vivian and Sadie walked this journey together; their unbreakable bond and love for each other transcends any illness and they will forever be connected in spirit.
Jessica and Brandon Oettel continue to be a pillar of comfort and support for Sadie's family. Linked by their shared intimate experience, Sadie lives on through Vivian's actions, memories, and friendship.
Left to cherish memory are her gram, Vicky Arrow and nanny, Bonnie Burdick; mom, Heather Arrow; great grandma "GG" Barbara Koltz; best friend forever, Vivian Oettel and her loving parents, Jessica and Brandon Oettel; Aunt Krissy and Uncle Joe; cousin Jahki; sister Samantha Nabinger Seaman (Codey); and three baby boy nephews; and a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins; and her beloved fur-baby, Rambo.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in Sadie's name to Tristar Centennial Childrens Hospital at 2220 Patterson St., Nashville, TN 37203.
