HALL, Natalie Dickson
Born Easter Sunday April 8, 1928 in Arlington, Massachusetts, Natalie passed away peacefully January 13, 2016 in Vancouver. Her beloved husband, Hugh Upham Hall, predeceased her in 1991. She was deeply loved by her children, Harriet (David), Dickson (Christine), Katherine and Carl (Mary) and grandchildren, Jackson, Blythe, Katie, Graham (deceased), Theo, Nicholas, Thomas, Max and Alison. Natalie viewed life as an adventure from her earliest years. After graduation from Radcliffe College (BA, History), she married Hugh (MBA, Harvard) and accompanied him, first to the wilds of Port Alberni, and then to Vancouver where she raised her family and became a Canadian citizen. She then carved a twenty-year career as a librarian for the UBC School of Architecture out of a six-week temporary position. She was an active member of Canadian Memorial United Church; her faith and devotion were a source of deep satisfaction. She loved to travel but also found time to volunteer within her community. Natalie touched many lives and will be very much missed by her family and friends. Her life will be celebrated at Canadian Memorial United Church, 1825 W. 16th Ave, on Saturday, January 30 at 4 pm, followed by a reception at the Centre for Peace. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in memory of Natalie to<>, a micro- lending non-profit operating internationally.

Carl, Kathy, Dick and Harriet, we are very sorry to hear of auntie Nats passing. It's been a long time since we have spent time with auntie Nat. When we think back, memories of her at Christmas and other family functions, we can remember her honesty, laughter and the way she called the kettle black if indeed it was black. Looking at you guys and her many grandchildren we know that her time here was time well spent, and she lived her life to the fullest. Regretfully we are unable to attend her celebration of life. Our thoughts and prayers on this day are with you.
Love Martin and Deana Rudolf.
