Natalie moved to Austin, Texas in 1997 and married Jerry in 1998. She again worked as a floral designer in Austin and later in Corpus Christi where she was Floral Design Manager. Her floral designs won several awards and her services were in demand for clients as far away as New Orleans, LA and Orlando, FL.

She loved life and especially loved her “furry kids” Milo, Sam Elliot, and Shadow Cat who were her constant companions and she spoiled them totally. Natalie is remembered fondly by many whose lives she touched. She loved, she was loved and she will be loved forever. Rest Easy my dear Natalie.
