After their children were grown, they moved to Akron, Ohio where she continued as a substitute teacher. Natalie managed a full time teaching position, a busy family, a cottage, a home and a social life with ease and gave her full attention to each of these jobs.

She instilled the balance of a strong work ethic and most importantly a loving home life in her daughters. She was a life long friend to many.
