Natalie is preceded in death by her parents, Nathaniel Law Beall, and Caroline Boatenreiter Beall, her sister, Carolyn Beall Gray, and her husband of fifty-six years, Eric Newsom, Jr. She is additionally preceded in death by her grandson Philip McKinley. Natalie was a graduate of Grady High School in Atlanta, Georgia. She also attended the University of Georgia where she majored in Home Economics. She was a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority. She was also a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Mama was a devoted wife and mother, and dearly loved her family. She was a devout Christian, and a devoted student of the Word of God. Her family often referred to her as a "walking concordance". Mama taught numerous women's Bible studies throughout Middle Georgia. Mama was one of the last of the true Southern Belles, and was the epitome of a true Southern lady.
