Natalie Elizabeth Pinch
Natalie Elizabeth Pinch passed away peacefully at her home in North Vancouver on Dec. 25, 2007, after a short courageous battle with cancer with her partner, parents, and youngest brother at her side. She was 47.
She was the much loved partner of Bahman Fattahi. She was the beloved daughter of Dr. Franklin and Judith Pinch of Kingston, and the cherished sister of Bradley (Beth) Pinch of Winchester, Blaine (Brenda) Pinch of Ottawa, and Gregory Pinch of Vancouver. Natalie will also be sadly missed by nieces Natasha, Amanda, and Steffanie, and nephews Christopher and Dayle. She also leaves behind aunts, uncles, and many cousins in Nova Scotia, Ontario, and British Columbia who will miss her dearly.
Natalie worked for CIBC for nearly a decade and after obtaining a Master’s of Social Work degree from Carleton University, worked in both Ottawa and Vancouver with disadvantaged women, assisted Community Living, Supported Childcare and, most recently, Community Living BC. She was an extremely dedicated, talented, and highly regarded social worker, who was also active in supporting and contributing to the well-being of under-privileged women and other disadvantaged groups and individuals. Her contributions made a huge difference in the lives of many people. Every person who met Natalie was struck by her kindness, openness, and her unconditional acceptance and love.
She will continue to live in the hearts of all those who loved her throughout her life.
A celebration of Natalie’s life will be held at the Trinity Church, 1099 Maitland Ave. in Ottawa on Jan. 19, from 5 to 7 pm. For more information please call Brad Pinch at 613-774-4770.
As per Natalie’s wishes there was no funeral held. Her remains were cremated in Vancouver and her ashes given back to the earth in her favourite places around BC.
