A viewing will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 24, at the Pioneer Park Chapel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Snowflake. On Friday, Aug. 25, there will be another viewing at 9 a.m. at the chapel, followed by the funeral service at 10 a.m. She will be interred to rest at the R.V. “Mike” Ramsay Cemetery in Snowflake.
She was born Aug. 22, 1977, in Layton, Utah. Natalie is the mother of seven wonderful children, Jordan Gustaf, Ellie, Lily Irene, Gracie, Macy, Maggie and Joseph Russell, and is the sister to James Russell Boone, David William Boone, Jared Hansen Boone, Rachel Boone Gardner, Lisa Boone Lowe and Heather Boone Brimhall.
Natalie was raised in a variety of locations, helping her family construct the homes they lived in in Hawaii, Oregon, St. George, Utah, and Snowflake. This instilled in her an appreciation for hard work. She graduated from Snowflake High School in 1995.
Natalie had a great love of her Savior Jesus Christ, and was a faithful member of the LDS church. In December 1998 she entered service as a fulltime missionary for the church in the Texas San Antonio Mission and served honorably for 18 months.
Natalie married Gus Lundberg on April 13, 2001, in the Salt Lake Temple in Utah for time and all eternity. They began their new life together by moving to St. George, where they both enrolled at Dixie State College. Natalie had attended college previously at Bon Losee Hair Academy, Northland Pioneer College and Brigham Young University. In May 2005, Natalie and Gus walked together in the commencement ceremony at Dixie State College, Gus having earned a bachelor’s degree and Natalie having earned an Associate of Arts degree. They had three children at this time.
Shortly after graduation, the couple decided to move to Snowflake to be closer to Natalie’s family. Gus began a career in municipal government and Natalie bore four more children. Her family was the center focus of her life, and she strived to instill a passion for music, education and the gospel of Jesus Christ into the lives of her children.
Nothing brought more joy to Natalie than to see her husband and children succeed in the things they were passionate about. The family loves to play sports, particularly volleyball and soccer. She loved to take family vacations and was at home in the outdoors.
Silver Creek Mortuary of Taylor was in charge of the arrangements.
