Natalie attended Discoveryland at Northwoods Community Church and enjoyed the Classical Conversations pre-school program and Jump Start Gymnastics in Peoria.
She enjoyed coloring, arts and crafts; swimming, swinging and play acting baby animal; listening to music by Julie K. and watching the Oklahoma Sooners and FC Bayern Munich; and collecting sawdust and rocks and digging in the dirt.
Natalie loved being in the swimming pool or at church or anywhere, as long as she was on the go. Most importantly, she loved birthdays, candy, listening to stories or playing with her siblings. She will be remembered most for her courage and her endurance. She was one of a kind.
