Kelly Lee Natali, 63, of Lake Charles passed away on Thursday, April 13, 2023 in Lake Charles.
Kelly was born on September 24, 1959 in Houston to her now deceased parents, Mickey and Jackie Henson. She was also preceded in death by two brothers, Joe Henson and Patrick Henson; and one sister, Kimberly Henson.
Kelly’s life centered around her extensive family. She cooked for everyone, the more the merrier, for every holiday or birthday or just because. She sent food to her neighbors. If she saw children in need, she took them to buy shoes, clothes, and toys. When her mother got sick, she took care of her to the end. Kelly was a giver her entire life, even at times when she had nothing. She will be remembered for her heart of gold that loved hard, as an inspiration to all, and as an exceptional role model. She will be missed.
Left to cherish her memory is her beloved husband of 25 years, Charles Natali; three daughters, Heather McBride (Seth), Halee VanAernam (Joshua), and Kym Condron (Scott); two sons, Charles Martin Natali (Jodi) and Nick Natali; twelve grandchildren, Rory Fontenot, Cruz McBride, Gauge VanAernam, Kross VanAernam, Jaidyn VanAernam, Amy Kratzer (James), Ryan Natali, Sadie Natali, Kynsley Natali, Bailey Natali, Gavin Natali, and Kyle Natali; three great grandchildren; two brothers, Chuck Henson and Clete Henson; and one sister, Kristy Hollan.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 AM on Monday, April 17, 2023 in the Johnson Funeral Home in Moss Bluff. Pastor Gill Arthur will officiate. Burial will follow in Westlake Memorial Park Cemetery. Visitation will begin on Sunday from 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM and will continue on Monday from 9:00 AM until the start of the service.
Pallbearers will be: Clete Henson, Chuck Henson, Clint Carver, Charles Martin Natali, Nick Natali, and Ryan Natali.
The family wishes to express a special thank you to Dr. Palumbo and the staff at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital and to the staff at Harbor Hospice, Dr. Langhofer, and Amber Cooper for their sincere compassion given to Kelly and her family while in their care.
