Birth: Jun. 16, 1930
Los Angeles
Los Angeles County
California, USA
Death: Dec. 14, 2012

Natalie Jean Anderson died December 14, 2012 peacefully at home in Boise, Idaho.

A celebration of life will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, December 20 at First United Methodist Church, Cathedral of the Rockies (11th and Hays St. in Boise, ID).

Natalie was born to Harold and Ada Rathbun on June 16, 1930 in Los Angeles, California. She was raised in Los Angeles where she graduated from high school and attended college. Natalie and her sister, Lois, were responsible for taking care of their home early in life, and it was then that Natalie developed a life-long passion and talent for sewing and cooking.

On September 30, 1969, Natalie married Warren E. Anderson. From that point forward, Natalie and Warren were inseparable and shared a life filled with love, friendship, and joy. Natalie and Warren especially enjoyed flying their airplane with family to their Pistol Creek cabin in the Frank Church Wilderness area.

They also loved being active members at the Cathedral of the Rockies, cheering on Boise State athletics, and treating their grandchildren whenever possible. They were never happier than when they were together. Warren passed away in May 2004.

Several years after Warren's passing, Natalie met Roy Sale, a loving friend and companion . Roy and his family brought much joy to mom in later years.

Besides providing a wonderful home for her family, Natalie was loving, generous, soft spoken, and the definition of a true lady. Faith was a central tenant of her life, and it was obvious in the way she lived.

In addition to being a caring wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, she also volunteered with St. Luke's Hospice and the Boise State athletics ticket office for many years.

Natalie is survived by her sister, Lois Kalish (Ed); daughters, Sue Moe (Don), Lori McKenna (Scott), Janet Lopez (Gorge), and Joni Sheils (Max); 14 grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren.

Natalie's family gratefully expresses their thanks to St. Luke's Hospice whose care and compassion during the final weeks helped to make her transition a peaceful one.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Bronco Athletic Association (BAA) Warren and Natalie Anderson Family Athletic Scholarship, 1910 University Drive, Boise, Idaho 83725, or a charity of your choice .
