Natalie Ann Stark
Our beloved mother, Natalie Ann Stark, a resident of Dana Point, California and a woman of great Christian faith passed away peacefully to join our Lord in Heaven surrounded by her children Talbot, Jamie and Glori on Friday, October 14, 2022, at the age of 82. She was a wonderful mother who was always there when we needed her and was a well-loved member in the community. Her joy in life was her faith in the Lord and she cherished her family and dear friends. Natalie was born on June 5,1940 in Marshfield, Wisconsin to Arthur and Lorraine Tesmer. She grew up in Appleton, Wisconsin but her passion to help others through her faith in the Lord extended far beyond. She met her soul mate Allen in Wisconsin married him in 1961 and the two of them would start a family, share the Gospel through home bible studies and foster friendships far and wide.
When Natalie had her first child, Talbot, she decided to devote her life to being a fantastic and wonderful mother. Natalie excelled at motherhood and was the foundation of our family, through and through. Whether it was driving out to California to help Talbot start his career or supporting Jamie by traveling with her throughout the world for Ironmans or encouraging and later guiding Glori as a mother with three children of her own, she was our constant cheerleader and supporter. Natalie’s children and grandchildren were the pride and joy of her life. The legacy of Natalie’s kind spirit, passion for God, love of the Green Bay Packers and zest for life will live on through them.
Although earthly bound, Natalie’s desire was to be on the move and after Allen’s retirement they traveled the world extensively together marveling at God’s creation, enjoying sunshine, and visiting family. Natalie had a passion for games from Bridge to Yahtzee and everything in between, she loved to knit gifts for those in need and family, was an amazing cook and celebrated every season. Natalie’s wish for each of you, Philippians 4:4-7, ” Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Preceding Natalie in death was her beloved husband of 50 years Allen, her brothers Bruce Tesmer, Mark Tesmer and Jack Kohl. She is survived by her brother Mike Tesmer and his wife Glenda, her sisters Susan Tesmer and Jan Kohl Kutsch and her husband Greg, her loving son Talbot and his wife Melissa, their children William and Luke; loving daughter Jamie and her husband Bob LeGere and their dog Prada; loving daughter Glori and her husband Neil Huse, their children Matthew, Emily and Katelyn.
