Walla Walla, Washington
Dec. 21, 1940 — April 6, 2018
On April 6, 2018, our beloved mother and grandmother “Nattie” died peacefully at home. She was born in Colorado, and later settled with her family in Hillsboro, Oregon.
She is a graduate of Hillsboro High School, and served as worthy adviser for Rainbow Girls, while her future husband, Gary, served as master counselor of DeMolay. They met on a blind date, and he knew the moment he set eyes on her she would be his wife. They were married for 53 years at the time of his death.
She was a devoted homemaker and business partner with her husband, owning the Cannon Beach Bakery and Geri’s Seafood and Chicken. She loved gardening, square dancing, painting, rodeos and playing pinochle with her friends at the Walla Walla Senior Center.
In memoriam, donations in her name may be sent to Walla Walla Community Hospice.
She was preceded in death by her brother, Jerry Davis, of Hillsboro, Oregon, and her husband, Gary, in 2013. She is survived by her daughters, Trina Berger, of Walla Walla, Washington, and Edie Paden, of Walla Walla, Washington; grandson, Austin Paden, of Boise, Idaho; and granddaughter, Jordan Schilling, of Milton Freewater, Oregon.
