Francine Jamie Lynn Nathaniel, 33, Of Chalkyitsik and Fort Yukon, went to be with our Lord in Heaven on March 11, 2020.

She had the most beautiful and talented beadwork as a child. Francine loved the outdoors and learned to go hunting and trapping. She loved living at Second Lake at our cabin living a substance lifestyle. She loved every season of the year, summer nights fishing and fall nights of moose hunting and spring trapping. She enjoyed gardening with her family and planting flowers.
Francine graduated from Tsuk Taih High School in 2005. She completed plumbing trade school and was a home care provider for her grandfather James Sr. She worked for Chalkyitsik Village Council, City of Fort Yukon, and Denali National Park. Francine spent her time playing volleyball and earned MVP in high school. Her pride and joys were her sister Sadie and two nephews, Danny and Darius. Francine enjoyed visiting, cooking and baking with family. She loved being outdoors walking her dog Charlie. She brought joy and happiness to her family. Francine met her sweetheart Roland in Fort Yukon in 2017, where they began their journey together to live in Chalkyitsik. Happily, together with their puppy Charlie they would always be smiling and laughing, making it home to Fort Yukon for the holidays to spend with family.
