It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Natalie Kross at the Port Colborne Hospital on Monday, April 5, 2021, at the age of 91. Beloved wife of the late William Kross (1996). Loving mother of David (the late Nina) and Rob (Klara). Proud and loving grandmother of Rachael and Alex. Dear sister of Anne McDonough, Kathy Roberts, the late Alice Kryszonski, and the late Mary Brown. Dear aunt to many nieces and nephews throughout North America.

Natalie was born and raised in Thunder Bay before moving to St. Catharines in 1962. She had a long and successful career at the St. Catharines General Hospital in Medical Records before retiring. Her passion for cooking and baking brought everyone together. Her greatest joy however, was the love for her family. She went above and beyond to do special things for everyone, especially for her grandchildren. Natalie wanted the best for everyone around her, and we are all better people because of her. We will miss her dearly.

In keeping with Natalie’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A private graveside service will be held at Victoria Lawn Cemetery where she will rest with her beloved Bill. Arrangements entrusted to Hulse & English Funeral Home & Chapel (905-684-6346). In lieu of flowers, memorial donations made to The Heart & Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by the family. Online tributes and condolences may be made at www.hulseandenglish.com

To David, Robbie and family
I worked with your mom for several years in the Medical Records department SCGH....She was a lovely, caring lady and when ever our kids came to visit the department Natalie always called them back to see her and slipped them a little treat. We have shared a lot of laughs through the years and I have a lot of wonderful memories of times spent together. I will always feel really blessed to have known your mom...Please know you are in my prayers.

David, Rob and Family:

Please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of your sweet mother and grandmother. I worked at Lookout and cleaned her bathroom. Your mom's room was absolutely immaculate. She was a woman of few words, but I always made an effort to engage her in conversation and make her smile. I recall that she wanted to give me some beautiful scarves, however, I was not able to accept them. She was also one of the first residents waiting down in the lobby for her meals. May you rest in peace sweet Natalie. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Cherish your beautiful memories of your Mom.

Dave, Robbie & family - condolences on the loss of your mother and our thoughts and prayers are with you. My memories of Nettie and Bill go WAY back to Fort William, Amelia Street, an impossibly large potato patch, the workshop, cabbage rolls, perogies, huge family dinners at Christmas, visiting with the aging Kross's and Dopko's. Seems like a hundred years ago but it was only 60, how time flies. Wishing you all the best in this difficult time,

Rich & Barb Olsen
