Natalie Golden Guffey, 76, of the Brooklyn Community, was welcomed into the presence of our loving Lord and Savior on August 3, 2018. She was born May 26, 1942, to Jessie Morgan and Lydia Lucinda Gibson Golden, in Huntsville, Alabama.
Mrs. Guffey served the Lord well as a wife and mother. With poise and grace, she maintained her home, was mother to six children, and supported her husband as a minster’s wife. She was an amazing cook and found joy in preparing meals for her family. Natalie loved beautiful things and had a gift in creating beautiful flower gardens. As grandchildren and great-grandchildren arrived, she loved and nurtured those children as she had her own. She was their grandmother; spoiler, supporter, confidant, and best friend. Natalie will be missed greatly until the day we can join her in our heavenly home.
