Obituary of Nathalie B. Duryea
Nathalie B. Duryea (56) of East Greenbush, NY passed away peacefully surrounded by her mother and children on June 19, 2021 from small cell lung cancer at St. Peter’s Hospital, Albany NY.
Nathalie was born February 11, 1965 in Albany, NY. She attended East Greenbush Central school and graduated from Mildred Elley School. She was currently employed by the NYS Department of Labor.
Nathalie was truly a “people” person. She accepted everyone. She had an “open door” and “open heart” policy. She loved her garden, butterflies, her cat Shadow, music and dancing, the ocean and beach. Her greatest accomplishments however were her children, Angelina and Andrew and the love of her life, her grandson, Owen. When you met Nathalie, you couldn’t help but forget about your worries. She had a way of pulling you out of your troubles and as the saying goes, “Dance as if no one is watching”. The outpouring of prayers and well wishes these last 84 days are a true testament of how much she loved and how many people loved her back. The void she has left behind is vast and she will be greatly missed. While our hearts are broken, her larger than life spirit lives on in the sharing of our memories of her and we are comforted knowing that her soul is at peace in her eternal home with our Lord, Jesus Christ.
She is survived by her mother Susan B. Somers-Smith, her daughter Angelina Cadena (Michael) Burns, her son Andrew Eyerman and the love of her life her grandson Owen Burns. She is also survived by her beloved partner Bill Kiablick, her loving and devoted sister Beverly (Scott) Steiger and her brother George (Michelle) Duryea, her nephews Phillip and Simon Steiger, Ryan Duryea, and her niece Amber Duryea and her step-grandmother Nancy H. Somers in addition to many other family members and friends. Nathalie was predeceased by her grandparents Edward M. and Maria B. Somers and her step-father Allan Smith.
A Christian Celebration of Life is planned for Sunday, June 27th, 2021 at 2 pm at Camp Adventure, 185-147 2nd Dyke Rd. Averill Park, NY 12018.
