Natalie Elizabeth “Nada” Petersen at the tender age of 2, excited for her 3rd birthday on November 11, 2014, passed away in a bad accident on Wednesday, October 15, 2014. Natalie was a little performer and for her birthday she picked 11-11-11. She was born in St. George, Utah, to Chad and Jennifer Haleua Petersen.
Natalie lived in Ivins, but she would say we lived in her kingdom where she ruled with laughter and play. She loved her curly hair and the color purple. Everyone loved her kingdom. Her favorite places to wander were her home, her cabin in Idaho and her grandparents’ home in Hawaii. In her life she allowed three sisters and one brother to co-rule, and love abounded. Recently she was the co-star in her cousin’s wedding, a flower girl, who winked at her audience especially her “Grandpa Pete.” She touched so many lives and though the Heavens received an angel we are without a queen. Natalie we will miss your laughs, smiles, and your carefree attitude. Dance in Heaven say “Yah and clap.”
Natalie is survived by her parents, Chad and Jen Petersen of Ivins; her brothers and sisters, Emma, Taylor (Cabriotti), Chase, and Savanah; grandparents, Gary and Linda Petersen of Ivins, Utah, and Tali and Allison Haleua of Heber, Utah; great-grandparents; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
She is preceded in death by her cousin, Jessica Petersen, and three great-grandparents.
