Nanette LaVergn Bejino was born on November 19, 1927, in Kenosha, Wisconsin to William and Caroline Gandt. She grew up and went to school in Kenosha. After high school graduation she attended Cosmetology School in Wisconsin. In 1964 she moved to Buffalo where she worked as a beautician for Bertie Tanner. At Bertie’s shop she was introduced to Jack Bejino and they were married on June 6, 1966 in Rapid City, South Dakota and they made their home in Buffalo. In 1968 she started Nan’s Beauty Shop which she owned and operated for 23 years, retiring in 1991. While serving the community in her shop she made and kept many, many good friends. After retirement she and Jack continued living in Buffalo until her death.

Nan was an avid hunter and fisherman. At the age of 83 she killed a moose with a crossbow. She killed a Buffalo near Jackson Hole and killed many elk, turkeys, deer and a bobcat. She was an accomplished quilter and won awards for her quilts at the Johnson County Fair. Nan was the longest standing member of the Buffalo American Legion Auxiliary with 54 years of service. She was a member of the Buffalo Homemaker’s Club and loved camping with her grandkids and family.
