She leaves behind her parents, Sandra and Hugh, and her brothers, Christian and Joseph, and her sister and best friend, Sylvia as well as her grandparents, David and Freda Woolley.

Natalie grew up in Burnaby, BC, and attended St. Mary's elementary school in Vancouver where she excelled in acting. Natalie graduated from Little Flower Academy in Vancouver and had just completed her third year of business management at Western University in London, Ontario. Natalie was a kind person and made friends very easily. She loved all of her friends very deeply. Natalie had an uncanny resilience and was able to see the good in everyone and everything. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Natalie's memory to Covenant House in Vancouver. A prayer service will be held on Thursday, May 10, at 8 pm at St. Mary's Church (5251 Joyce Street in Vancouver).
