I knew Natalie through St. Paul’s church where my mom and she became great friends, attending and helping at many church functions, visits, and later on, playing Bingo together at the Senior Centre here in Maple Ridge. Whenever we would pick her up for church service, she was so appreciative with countless thank-you’s and a hug. Such a kind and loving lady who touched many hearts. I know my mom will have a big hug for her in Heaven. God Bless.

Thinking of all of the family of a very special lady in my life. She was Netty to us as we grew up. I remember spending a lot of time at the Fiebelkorn house on what is now 124th Ave. My mom and Adolph were cousins. As kids we played in the house as our parents played "Rook". How they concentrated on their game as we pulled the the buttons on the organ and pushed the pedals is a clear memory. My mom and your mom worked together at the Box Factory and the Cannery. They may have even fleshed mink and pinned turkeys as those were other jobs my mom worked!!
The social part of the get togethers were dances, weddings, Large family gatherings were the norm. As were card games and keeping in touch with all the cousins, aunts and uncles. We certainly were fortunate of to have parents to whom family was important.
Going to church on Sundays was a weekly part of our lives. No coffee times in the church at that time just in our homes. More interactions as we sang hymns, the adults visiting and all of us kids playing outside!! It seemed everyone had a part in the church that was, St. Paul's, most of them related to us.
When my parents moved away from Haney I used to look forward to seeing Natalie at church. She reminded me so much of my mom - they did look a lot like sisters! I truly loved her for her sense of humor and how she always treated me. The last visit with her was in the London Drugs Mall, We were visiting from Vernon and Larry said his mom was shopping. We sat in the mall and visited A picture to remember that is one I will treasure.
A special lady who has a special place in my heart. She lived 25 years longer than my mom, more time to spend with each of you as you go on to rest eternally in Heaven. What a joyful reunion that will be. Thinking of you as you celebrate a life well lived -God Bless you all as you mourn the passing of one who was so dearly loved/
