Natalie Marie Enz, our beloved daughter, mother, and friend passed away on Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2016 in a tragic car accident on Napa Road in Sonoma, Ca at the age of 35 years. She is survived by her loving sons Spencer Herrick age 15, Anthony Anderson age 11 and her parents Tony and Lori Enz. Natalie also leaves behind her grandmothers: Marie Enz, Mimi Vaughn and Rodica Daichendt, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.
Natalie attended Sonoma Valley High School and went on to Santa Rosa Junior College to study Child Psychology. Natalie also worked for a total of 15 years for various companies in Sonoma County. When her boys were born she decided to become a stay-at-home mom. She took pride in raising them and enjoyed every minute being with them, attending all their soccer and baseball games. Let us tell you she did an outstanding job in raising them. They are wonderful boys and they will miss their mom more than words can express. Natalie was always there with a smile, warm touch, and she provided the sunshine of each day. Our endless thanks will never be enough.
Natalie’s passion and love for horses made her a successful horse back rider. At the age of 4-years-old, she started out riding in the relaxed Western style then changed to the classical English style. She went on to become an accomplished equestrian winning many ribbons riding her beautiful horse “Casey” (show name “My Girl”) a 3-year-old thoroughbred mare. Natalie also loved her rescue dog Tinker Bell. Tinker Bell was the cutest little Chihuahua/mix and went everywhere with Natalie. Tinker Bell passed away a few years ago and it broke Natalie’s heart. In addition to her love of animals, Natalie also enjoyed playing the piano. Her boys loved sitting around the piano listening to her play her favorite song by Beethoven - Für Elise.
Natalie loved life and all it had to offer. We will miss her every second of every day.
