Natalie Jo Schaublin
March 14, 1963 - April 24, 2019

Tuesday, April 30th from 3-8 p.m. at Harlem Road United Methodist Church

Wednesday, May 1st 10:30 a.m. at Harlem Road United Mehtodist Church

Natalie Jo Schaublin, age 56, passed away on Wednesday April 24, 2019. Visitation will be from 3:00pm to 8:00pm Tuesday April 30 at Harlem Road United Methodist Church (5520 Harlem Road Galena, Ohio 43021). Her funeral service will be at 10:30am Wednesday May 1, 2019 at Harlem Road United Methodist Church.

Natalie was born March 14, 1963 in Lima, Ohio; she was the daughter of Thomas and Carolyn Frail. She was a 1981 graduate of Lima Shawnee High School, 1985 graduate of Bowling Green State University and earned her Masters Degree from The Ohio State University. For 30 years, Natalie dedicated her time to her passion, teaching. She spent the beginning of her career at the University of Northwestern Ohio, 14 years at Southeast Career Center (Columbus), and the last 17 years at Westerville North High School. She was the Business Education Department Head, taught various business and computer classes, and ran the school store at Westerville North. Over the years, many students walked into her classroom at the beginning of the year dreading having to take a boring business class, and would end the year wanting to pursue a business degree in college. She had a gift for teaching students, helping them realize their potential; she believed in them and in turn they believed in themselves.

Other than teaching, Natalie was passionate about The Ohio State University Buckeyes and watching her boys compete in all of the various athletics they participated in over the years. She spent countless hours at little league games, track meets, lacrosse tournaments, football, basketball, etc. She was Matt and Kevins number one fan.

Natalies presence was rare and beautiful. Her smile would light up a room, and her joy would fill the air. She was marked by unconditional love and selflessness - always willing to put anothers needs before her own. She was kind and gentle (except towards Xichigan fans), caring and fun. We miss her so much already she is irreplaceable. Getting to know and love Natalie was the greatest gift.

Natalie and her husband Mike shared 30 beautiful years of marriage together. She is survived by her husband, Michael Mike Schaublin; two sons, Matt (Katie) Schaublin, and Kevin Schaublin; sister, Laurie (Jason) Waltz; mother-in-law, Rosemarie Schaublin; sister-in-law, Kathi (Brian) Willeke; nieces and nephews, Tom (Nicole) Waltz, Katy Jo Waltz, Chris (Courtney) Willeke, Scott Willeke; as well as many friends that have become like family over the years.

Natalie was preceded in death by her mother, Carolyn Frail; father, Thomas Frail.

When our daughter Beth died a friend sent me this." Grief I've learned, is really just love. It's all the love you want to give, but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in your throat and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is love with no place to go." In time the grief is still there but the memories make you smile more and cry less. Babette and Bernie Hatcher (Brit Donahue's grandparents)

Natalie and I went to high school together. We ran into one another at a gas station, many years later, and she asked if I would come and speak to her government class. She was a great teacher and a wonderful person when we were in school. Very sorry for your loss. Will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. Steve & Lori Click

In that time I could see the great love and caring you both had for each other. I wish I could have spent more time helping you and Natalie and getting to know you better. Know that my prayers are with you and your family. May you all find peace as you cope with your loss. Take Care, God Bless, Marlene, caregiver for Joe Govern
