Natalie was taking part in a motorcycle memorial rally for Donald Anderson, her brother-in-law who had tragically died in an air accident with his father. She was riding pillion passenger on her husband's motorcycle when it crashed at Lake Hawea during the rally to the West Coast.

  • Beautiful lady

    I would see Natalie most days when I worked in the florist below Commercial and Rural, there realy wasnt a day Natalie didnt swing in and say hello, or on her way past give a big cheerful wave and smile. She was truely a breath of fresh air!!! Even on the most bleek day, she would always sparkle all the way down the street!
    She would always stop you in the street for a chat, haha..... it was never good bumping into Nat when you were in a hurry!!
    To all of the Anderson family, you were truely blessed with such an amazing one in a million lady, I think of her of often and can only imagine she sparkles wherever she is now, she will be sadly missed but never forgotten.

  • Wonderful memories

    Dear Muzz,Ashleigh & Matt

    SO very sorry we couldn't make it to Nat's funeral recently. I have such special memories of her as, of course, I lived with you guys briefly in 1995. My memories of her back then were "perfect". Perfect wife & mother to two tremendous wee kids, always "perfect" in how she was dressed,"perfect" kind and warm to her friends, but boy, how she could talk!!I have thought of her a lot over the years and my lasting memory of her will be her winning smile & infectious laugh. I'm sure Donald & Grahame are looking after her well in heaven. Take care of each other and please take heart that she was loved by so many people who will miss her and think of her often.

  • Dear Murray, Ashleigh and Matt,
    I thought Natalie was just so lovely. I didn't know her very well, but she always made me feel like we were great friends. I wish I could've had one more Hello from her, just because she was so nice. I will always think of her in springtime - a lovely, pretty, pink time of year. I met her when I was working at The Terrace Store in High School and I just loved her purple perfect nail polish and of course she was so kind - a true princess.

    No time on earth is long enough to share with those we love or to prepare our hearts for good-bye.
    May time soften the pain until all that remains is the comfort of memories and love.

  • To Murray, Ashleigh, Matthew & Family

    Sorry to hear of your tragic accident and the loss of Natalie "your soul-mate". Although I didn't know Natalie I know people who did and thought very highly of her, with her lovely smile & bubbly personality she would make any ones day even a stranger, as a result Natalie will be sadly missed in the Alexandra Comunity.
    My thoughts are with you and your family at this sorrowful time.

  • To Murray, Ashleigh and Matt

    My mind has been consumed with thoughts of you all since I heard the sad, sad news.
    I had the pleasure of seeing you, Natalie and Ashleigh while I was down at the end of
    August and I remember thinking what a wonderful family you are. The world has lost a beautiful soul, she had an amazing aura and wonderful ambience and I am sure this will remain deep in your hearts for ever.

    Take special, special care.

    Thinking of you.
