Natalie Salsig passed away on June 8, 2016 at the age of 95.
Natalie spent her early years in Spokane, WA and moved to Berkeley when she was 12. She met her future husband of 50 years, William Winter Salsig Jr. while attending UC Berkeley where she received her BA in English and Music. After teaching first grade in Oak Ridge, TN during WWII when Bill was transferred to assist with the Manhattan Nuclear Research project, she moved to Kensington, CA, a place she would call home for more than 60 years.
Natalie’s devotion to local civic volunteerism improved the lives around her. She volunteered in Richmond Schools for 15 years, was awarded a lifetime membership to the PTA, and served on the Board of Directors of the Kensington Improvement Club for more than 25 years. She was the co-author of Kensington – Past and Present.
She is survived by her younger brother Duane, two of her three sons, William Salsig of Twain Harte, CA and Ronald Salsig of Alameda, CA; grandchildren Jody Pritchard of San Francisco, CA and Brian Salsig of Vancouver, WA and three great-grandchildren, Bodhi, Autumn, and Carson.
Family and friends are invited to a Celebration of Natalie’s Life on Friday, July 22, 2016 at 2PM at the Fireside Room at the Gateway Club House, 1001 Golden Rain Rd., Walnut Creek, CA.
