Natalie Ann Alexander Lartigue passed peacefully in her sleep on April 26, 2017 at 2:49pm, following a year and a half long battle with cancer. She left this Earth in her own bed and Boston Terrier pajamas at home, surrounded by her husband, children, sisters, and her beloved fur-babies. Natalie served as a teacher for more than twenty years, across three different parishes, enriching the lives of thousands and thousands of students, fellow teachers, and administrations. She was a full-time advocate for animal’s rights, owning a menagerie of rescue animals, whom she dedicated most of her love, time, and income to. Her puppies stayed loyally by her side to the very end, and brought her great comfort and peace in the final moments. She was also a world traveler and was led by her sense of adventure and love for history. She is survived by her husband of 24 years, Blanchard, her two children, Cameron and Felicity, her sisters, Wendy, Shelly, and Bawnie. She is also survived by a host of nieces, nephews, and incredible family friends. She was the youngest daughter of the late Lawrence and Ardean Alexander. She had the biggest and brightest personality of anyone you’d ever meet, and never turned away someone in need. Her compassion and humor will live on in all the lives that she touched in her short time with us. She will be deeply missed and always remembered.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend the Funeral Mass in the Chapel of Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home, 5100 Pontchartrain Blvd., New Orleans, on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. Visitation will begin at 12 p.m. Interment will follow in All Saints Mausoleum in Metairie Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family instead requests donations be made to the Alabama Boston Terrier Rescue at 427 Country Rd 281, in Courtland, AL, whom she worked with tirelessly, and through which she found her beloved Queen Izzy, who surely greeted her when she left this Earth.
