Our wonderful Daughter, Sister, Aunt and Friend, taken from us far too soon after a courageous battle with cancer. To know her was to love her. Natalie had a bright energy, infectious laugh, smile and kindness that is impossible to forget. Natalie’s cheerful uplifting spirit never faded, despite her diagnosis. Her natural charisma and positive energy allowed her to reach and move so many people.

She was an accomplished prankster, comedic impersonator, and could easily disguise herself with her many ‘foreign accents’. Natalie always brought a smile to people’s faces and more accurately, often had the room roaring in laughter. She seemed to breeze through life, caring when it mattered, but not sweating the details, making the most of each moment and focusing on personal connections. Natalie was spontaneous and made people feel special with generous gifts, cards, songs, poems and most importantly, her time. She encouraged those around her to be the best versions of themselves and strived to create a world where everyone could exist in harmony and peace. What's remarkable is the feeling you are left with after exposure to such a joyous energy. Those who have known her will ponder ‘How does one get so happy and stay that way?’ -That's Natalie's way.
