Natalie accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Bayview Baptist Church by the late Pastor Timothy J. Winters. Natalie, a graduate of Joe Blasco Beauty College in Hollywood, CA, was a well-known professional makeup artist in Southern California. She knew how to handle those brushes! At weddings, graduations, proms, bridal showers etc, Natalie’s work was apparent. A perfectionist who took great pride in her work, she wanted to make everyone she met beautiful. Beauty should have been her middle name.
