Natalie Helena MacLean of Redcliff, Alberta, age 66 years, passed away peacefully at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital on Monday, August 7th, 2017 with her family close by her side. Natalie leaves behind her husband of 47 years, William “Bill” Maclean of Redcliff; her son, Kevin and daughter, Shannon, both of Medicine Hat. She also leaves behind sister, Darlene Cameron of North Sydney, Nova Scotia; brother, Danny (Ann) of Ardrossan, Alberta; brother, William “Bill” (Ellen) of Redcliff; sister, Elaine Gardyne of Redcliff; brother, Michael of Redcliff; and brother, Ben (Jan) of Calgary; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Natalie was predeceased by her mother and father, Helen and Clarence Ranger of Ardrossan. Natalie was a very special lady to all who knew her. Natalie’s great love was her family and she was happiest sitting around her kitchen table with Bill, Kevin and Shannon chatting and always, lots of laughter. She had a passion for painting and ceramics, jigsaw puzzles, reading and Facebook games. She loved her Polar Bear collection. Natalie was a dog lover and her special pet, Zeva, was her pride and joy. She also enjoyed the occasional scratch ticket and a game of Bingo with her son, Kevin; sister, Elaine; brother, Michael; and sister-in-law, Ellen. Each year Natalie looked forward to her June trip to Cape Breton Island to visit with her Eastern family and Bill’s family, swim in the ocean and, of course, enjoy a few lobster. In accordance with Natalie’s wishes, there shall be no funeral service. A Wake will be held at SAAMIS CREEKSIDE CENTRE, #11 Dunmore Road SE, on Sunday, September 3rd, 2017 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. This date was selected so all family members could attend.
