I did not see "Nat" often, only when visiting relatives in the area but she was always so sweet and dear. Frank, I know you will miss her to no end but find comfort in knowing you will be reunited once again. Please accept our most tender condolences. These go to Alex (his family) and Adam as well and to her mother and extended family members. I remember the boys calling me "grandma B"and Nat making sure I got to see them when we were visiting-bless them both. Holding you all close to my heart - as is Steve too. much love , Barb and Steve Campbell.

Natalie,
You were the like bright sunshine streaming through a window. Your happy smile and optimistic outlook always inspired us. Your generous love and affection was like a warm blanket you wrapped us in. I will miss your laughter, your enthusiasm, your demeanor. I'm so grateful for all the time I had with you. I will miss you and think of you everyday.

I am one of the many Merkley moms who have come and gone. Natalie was always there to make sure everything at the school was taken care of. She was a nice woman who always gave a helping hand. She loved talking about her family. I send my condolences and prayers to all of her loved ones especially her husband, kids and grandchildren.

Frank, Alex(Amanda)& Adam, our hearts are crushed as yours are I'm sure! Natalie & I met as our sons became best friends early on. We each gained a new son! Frank coached our boys in Pop Warner & our friendship bloomed! Never have I met a kinder, loving, genuine, or more sincere friend! We could always pick up where we had left off. Such an incredible person to everyone! I will miss her smile, her laugh & her hugs! Continue on, as the amazing Angel you were on earth! So lucky to have known you!!!💗😘

I also worked with Natalie at Merkley for many years. She was always the most pleasant and caring lady around. When I switched positions, she went out her way to bring me a special paint color to spruce up my office. Every time I walk into it I will smile at her memory. She was the best.

I worked with Natalie at Merkley Elementary. She was always there to open the door with a bright smile. Her pleasant voice with a warm “good morning” started each of my days there. Natalie will be missed by all who have met her. Rest In Peace Natalie.

I worked with Natalie at Merkley Elementary. She was a very caring person. She always was there to help or give a kind word. I truly appreciated all the times she would go the extra mile to let me in the school on the weekends to work. She will be missed by everyone that knew and loved her. She so adored her family and especially her grandchildren. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time.
