GALESBURG - Natlie K. Sandoval, 60, Galesburg, died at Galesburg Cottage Hospital ICU at 11:38 p.m. Feb. 2, 2008.

Natlie was born Feb. 2, 1948, in Galesburg, the daughter of Sostenes and Rufina Delgado Perez. She was wed to Alfonso Sandoval on Nov. 24, 1967, in Galesburg.

Surviving are two daughters, Ruth Sandoval of Peoria and Karen (Bill) Baughman of Galesburg; one son, Alfonso Sandoval Jr. of Galesburg; seven grandchildren, Jessica Hall, Christopher McCrea, Aaron, Austin and Alex Baughman, Mercedes and Kalley Sandoval, and one expected grandchild due to arrive Feb. 14, 2008; six brothers, Lupe (Jessie) Perez of Galesburg, John (Norma) Perez of Tulsa, Okla., Frank Perez of Galesburg, Jesse (Jovita) Perez of Galesburg, Angelo Perez of Galesburg and Richard (Yolanda) Perez of Springfield; and one sister, Helen (David) Rasso of Galesburg.

Natlie attended Galesburg schools and was employed at John's Taco Hideout prior to devoting 28 years to Butler Manufacturing, where she especially loved Dept. 84.

After retiring in 2003, Natlie became a full-time grandma. She enjoyed spending time at the Paradise Riverboat Casino and taking care of her dog Paco, but her greatest enjoyment was shopping for her grandkids and surprising them with unexpected gifts.

She spent the majority of her life in Galesburg. However, her battle with liver disease required her to reside with daughter Ruth's family in Peoria, where she received care and assistance for the past 2 1/2 years.

She was preceded in death by her parents, two sisters, one brother and her beloved daughter Lisa Sandoval-Hall, who passed away on April 14, 2007.

Visitation will be 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6, at Watson Funeral Home, where personal memory sharing will begin at 7:30 p.m. Funeral mass will be at 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, at St. Patrick's Catholic Church, Galesburg.
