Natalie Larsen

December 20, 1971February 7, 2013

Larsen, Natalie On December 20, 1971 in Logan, Utah, beautiful Natalie Larsen was born to the delight of her sister, Jamie Larsen, and her brother Jason Larsen. Her proud parents were Gary Larsen and Letitia (Tish) Barrett Larsen (later Letitia Giffin). Since that time Natalie continued to bring joy into the hearts and lives of her family, friends, co-workers, and other acquaintances. She was loving, generous, brilliant, and had a great sense of humor. To our deep sorrow, on February 7, 2013, following a short illness, Natalie returned to Heaven and joined her beloved mother Letitia Giffin who died nearly eight years ago. Natalie moved with her family to Arizona in 1976. She attended Maryland Elementary, Royal Palm Middle School, and Washington High School. She was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. During and following high school, Natalie worked for Dial Corporation, then for Viad, and at the time of her death, she was an Administrator Assistant at Avnet. She and her sister Jamie lived in Peoria with Jamie's children (Natalie's two nieces), Logan and Tatum Yoon. Her niece, Ryan Larsen, recently moved to Boston. Natalie enjoyed vacationing (She loved the ocean!) and various nature and outdoor activities, such as camping and motorcycle riding. She was an avid animal lover. Rascal, her sweet little dog of many years, waited for her in Heaven. She left three lonely dogs and a cat on earth. Natalie is loved so dearly and missed so much by her father, Gary Larsen, and by her sister and brother, Jamie Larsen and Jason Larsen. She is also loved by and greatly missed by her grandmother, Dora Larsen, who lives in Logan, Utah, by her step-mother Kathryn Morgan-Larsen, by her step-father David Giffin, by her step-sisters and brother, JulieAnne Gibby, Kristy (Tom) Gibby-Wachter, Krista Giffin, Megan (Larry) Shoemake, and Dave Giffin, and by her nieces Ryan Larsen, Logan Yoon, and Tatum Yoon, her step-nieces and nephews Sckylar Gibby-Brown, Laicey Gibby-Brown, Kira Wachter, Blaire Mari Wachter, Braxton Wachter, Hayden Shoemake, Landon Shoemake, and by scores of other good friends and relatives. A service and celebration of Natalie's life will be held at the West Resthaven Funeral Home, 6450 West Northern Ave., Glendale on Saturday, February 16, 2013 at 1:00.

I want to let Jamie and Jason know that we are thinking of them. I'm sure it has been difficult without having your Mom here, and to have the sudden loss of your sister is not fair.
We love you and want you to know you are in our thoughts.
