Nadia  Crook
Nadia Crook, 85, of Oskaloosa passed away Wednesday, October 2, 2019, at the Oskaloosa Care Center.
Nadia Joyce Crook, daughter of William Jasper and Alberta Mae (Marshall) Musgrove, was born March 31, 1934, in Oskaloosa, Iowa. She attended Oskaloosa Schools and then, as a young lady, moved to Bettendorf. While in Bettendorf, Nadia began her life-long career in foodservice and worked at Ross' Restaurant. In 1985, Nadia returned to the Oskaloosa area and started a mobile food service and Tuffy's Snack Bar at Armbruster's Auction Service; and served food at numerous auctions and other events in the area. Nadia loved to cook; her passion was meeting and feeding people - and people loved her food.
Nadia was a member of the Eagles Aerie, The American Legion Auxiliary, and was a former member of the Moose Lodge. She enjoyed bowling and playing board games with family and friends. She never knew a stranger and enjoyed engaging in conversation and making new friends.
