Natalie's life revolved around loving and taking care of her family and friends, as well as helping others and serving God. Natalie dedicated her life to being the best wife, mother, grandmother, and daughter. She was known for her loving, caring, compassionate, and giving heart. She was also known for her exceptional cooking and baking. She loved sharing her cooking with others and bringing people together.
She could start a conversation with anyone and instantly become friends. She had a great sense of humor. She was always laughing and could make anyone laugh with any random thing that she said. She was as feisty as she was funny. She went through a lot in her life, including battling and defeating cancer. She was a fighter and her strength shined through her. Even though family was everything to her, she lived her life with faith at the foundation. She read her Bible every day and lived her life by it.
Natalie is survived by her husband Ralph; four children, Ralph Jr., Angelica, Cynthia (husband Stephen), Jacob; granddaughter Abigail; mother Irene; brother Robert, loving grand-dogs, and numerous other family members. She was the definition of what a mom should be. She always put her family before herself. She will be forever remembered and dearly missed.
