I am so saddened to learn of Natalye's passing. She was a very special lady who lived her life courageously and with class. I feel privileged to have been her friend since we were teenagers. My heartfelt sympathy to Howard and the rest of Natalye's beloved family. Sherrie

I'm very sorry to hear about Natalye's passing after a long and courageous battle she fought. As her Utopian classmate I'll always remember her smile, friendliness, bubbly personality and what a good person she was. A donation to the City of Hope for cancer research will be made in her memory.

Dear Howard,
Words can't express my sorrow for you and your family. I know what a courageous fight you and Natalye made these last few years. Which surely gave her more time.
I hope you can find some measure of peace.
Know that I still consider you an advocacy hero. Your devotion @ advocacy to your family proves it.
In Sorrow,
Ann Eldridge

Natalie was an incredible role model all those years in Special Education. She was one of a kind and I was privileged to work with her. In recent years, when we would meet, she remained dedicated, feisty, and humorous. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Howard, you must have done something really right to get to spend 55 years with a woman like Natalye!

Laurie and Jeff, your wonderful mother was the most self-effacing person I've ever known. Her children and grandchildren were the only things I ever heard her brag about and, boy, did she brag!

It was my great privilege to call Natalye my friend for 41 years, through CSUF and IUSD. She will be missed by everyone whose lives she touched. The tremendous turnout at her service today bears testimony to how universally she was loved.

My thoughts are with you all.
