Natalie E. Wilkins, "Kate", passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on June 28, 2017. Natalie was born to Ernest H Wilkins and Mary Wilkins (Sherts) on January 3, 1941 in Burbank, California. Natalie graduated from UCLA in 1963 with a teaching degree and went on to teach for several years before starting a family and staying home to raise them. Later in life, after finding herself a single mother of four young children, she went back to teaching in the Los Angeles School District by day and went to Law school at night. She graduated from Whittier College School of Law in 1984 and moved to Washington State to practice law. She worked for the Pierce County Department of Assigned Counsel for 18 years as a public defender. She dedicated her life to helping others and was a loving, strong, role model for her children.

Natlalie was preceded in death by her father, mother and grandson (Francesco Salamone). She is survived by her 2 sons, Michael Brickman and David Brickman; 2 daughters, Alison Koth and Rebecca Brickman-Salamone and their spouses; and 9 grandchildren.

The family would like to thank Aegis of Kent and Franciscan Hospice Care for their loving care of their mom and grandmother. Natalie will be greatly missed. She is now in the loving care of her Father in Heaven forever.
"You did good Froggy Grandma".
