Nov. 17, 1988 – Feb. 22, 2013
Natalie Michelle Carpenter was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She graduated from John Burroughs High School in Burbank.
She was born with many gifts and talents. Natalie was a legal secretary/bookkeeper and loved being with friends and family and going to the beach.
When she went to work with her father at Warner Bros. and Fox Studios, she was frequently mistaken for a celebrity and asked for her autograph. She volunteered to share her talent for doing hair and makeup for her friends and family all the time.
Natalie loved music, singing and dancing. She survived several difficult health problems and a serious car accident that left her disabled over the last few years. Her final nine days were spent in the hospital fighting a deadly illness until her heart gave out.
Natalie will be remembered for her beauty and her ability to change the lives of others with her beautiful happy smile. She always thought of the wellbeing of others and gave with all her heart to them. We will miss her example and love her always.
She is survived by her parents Robert and Deborah (Worden) Carpenter of Burbank; her brother Adam Carpenter of Van Nuys; her sisters Katherine (Carpenter) Rosales of West Hills, Stephanie Carpenter of Sun Valley and Heather Carpenter of Burbank. She was the granddaughter of Richard Worden (deceased) and Barbara Louise Hunt (Worden) Winfree and her husband Robert T. Winfree of Farmington, N.M.
