Natalie Ann Howard, age 51, of Conroe, Texas returned to her Heavenly home with the Lord on April 7, 2015, quite unexpectedly. Her devotion to her family and career were evident on a daily basis. She never met a stranger and was always there to listen and provide support in all situations with a witty sense of humor and compassion. While never having children of her own, she was considered the "Great Aunt Nanny" to her four beautiful nieces and nephews, as well as a devoted and remarkable big sister, daughter, and friend. Twenty-seven years ago, Natalie began a successful career with Tenaris, formerly known as Maverick Tube. Although Natalie spent the majority of her Tenaris' years with the company at the Conroe facility, she also spent six years working in the Tenaris North American Headquarters in the Galleria. During her time with the company, Natalie worked on many important human resources projects helping the Conroe facility to become an important part of the company's industrial system. Natalie was also a key global information technology employee for a variety of human resource information systems. As a key global contributor, Natalie was well known and respected as an expert in human resource information systems throughout the many different countries. During her time with the company, Natalie traveled outside of the country to help implement some of these important projects as Tenaris expanded internationally. Over the years, Natalie built lasting and meaningful relationships with the employees of Tenaris. Her colleagues from around the world are thankful to have worked with her and will truly miss her.

Natalie was born to the late Margie and Keith Stubbs, Sr. She was blessed with a large and loving family. She is survived by her sister Tammy Zunker; her children Trent McNamara and Madison Zunker; her brother Keith Stubbs Jr.; his wife Cathy Stubbs, and their children; Sarah and Ben Stubbs, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends.

Natalie is preceded in death by her parents Margie and Keith Stubbs, Sr.; her brother-in-law Shawn Zunker; her grandparents Ben Hoffart, Margaret Hoffart, Alton Stubbs and Merle Stubbs; as well as Uncle Norty Hoffart, Aunt Irene and Uncle Eddie Witherspoon.

Natalie's life will be celebrated beginning with a visitation from 5:00 to 7:00 PM followed by a Catholic Rosary at 7:00 PM officiated by Deacon Don Sims on Friday, April 10th at Metcalf Funeral Home in Conroe, Texas. The funeral service will be held on Saturday, April 11th at 2:00 PM at Metcalf with a graveside service to follow at Garden Park Cemetery on FM 3083 in Conroe, Texas. The family encourages all to share memories and express condolences by visiting her website at and signing Natalie's guest book.
