Graveside service was Thursday, Sept.28, at 2 p.m. in Liberty Church Cemetery. Schubert Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
I knew Natalie for many years and the one thing that stands out the most is laughing. Anytime you were near her there was something to laugh about and she had a great laugh. The most important thing about Natalie was how much she loved her sons and was so very proud of them. We talked about being Grandma's and how precious her little grandson was. I didn't see her often lately but it was easy to pick up where we left off when we did get together.
