Buthfer, Natalie Ann

November 27th 1973 -April 25th 2013

Natalie Buthfer passed away, suddenly, at her home, aged 39 years. She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her father Michael (Wendy), her mother Nora (Alan) Blair, her brother Andrew (Janet), sister Lara (Craig) Rowland and sister Carolyn (Gary) Carr, her step-brothers Stephen (Geri) Blair and David (Momoko) B lair, her niece Alicia and nephews Jake, Finlay, Oscar and Zak and by her Auntie Ann and Uncle Vic, Uncle John and Auntie Joyce and her eleven cousins in England. Natalie was predeceased by her sister Tanya Louise and by her grandparents Mr and Mrs P. Brown and Mr and Mrs H.C. Buthfer.

Natalie was born and raised in Calgary. She graduated from Mount Royal College in 1994 with a diploma in Social Work and for many years was employed at Calgary Home Support Services, where she was loved and respected by her colleagues and all the clients in her care.

Natalie loved to spend time with her friends and family and her beloved Fat Cat, listening to music, chatting or watching movies and crocheting her beautiful afghans. She loved camping, roller blading and skiing.

Natalie fought a long and brave fight against meningitis last year and astounded doctors by her amazing recovery. She was determined to overcome the difficulties she suffered following this devastating illness.

We love you, Nat – our little girl with a heart as big as a house.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I met Nat in grade 10 and we became best friends. We went in different directions after high school but always kept in touch through email, phone, and Facebook and always met up when we could. She was the best best friend anyone could ask for. I will miss her but I know she’s looking down from heaven everyday watching over us all.

    Our thoughts are with you, Lara, and family there hasn’t been a day that goes by that I hope you are doing okay. Just a little something someone posted for me and I want to share with you “Wish heaven had a phone so we could hear your voice again. Thought of you today but that’s nothing new. Thought of you yesterday and days before that too. We think of you in silence and often speak your name. All we have are memories and pictures in a frame and lots of love in our hearts that will never fade away.” Nat was one of those special people that we feel so blessed to have met and be in our life.

    Very sad to read of Natalie’s passing. She was a member of the Woodlands School extra-curricular rhythmic gymnastics program for several years and was one of the gymnasts proudly representing her school at the Canadian National Gymnaestrada in Toronto in 1985. Natalie always had a smile on her face, even when she was trying out a complicated new move with a ribbon or hoop. She was cheerful and a pleasure to coach. My condolences to all the family.
    From former Woodlands volunteer coach Helgi Leesment
