Natalya was born on Nov. 25, 1982 in Aurora to Mark and Laurie Weisgerber. She graduated valedictorian from Arvada High School in 2001 and earned a bachelor’s degree in history at Colorado State University in 2004.

Natalya enjoyed cross-stitch and received many county fair ribbons for her pieces. She shared her art freely with those she cared for. Natalya was also an avid lover of nature and felt most at peace in the mountains surrounded by those who cared for her. She also had a strong passion for music and performed in choir through out high school and college.

Natalya had an infectious smile and laughter that will be sorely missed. Her services were held at the Arvada Center for Arts and Humanities.
