In memory of

Natascha Felicia Rodrigues

May 8, 1985 -  August 17, 2019

May 08 1985 – August 17 2019

Natascha Rodrigues, the precious and beautiful daughter of Joel and Mumtaz Rodrigues, passed away peacefully and in comfort with her family by her side.

Natascha had a beautiful spirit who believed in truth. She was smart, gentle, kind and humble. In spite of her lengthy illness, she endured life with a strong will and a dogged determination.
She excelled in academics and played soccer in the Rep team. She had a great sense of humor and told many funny stories. Natascha was skillful in many areas and was an avid reader. She loved a variety of music especially the “oldies”.

She thoroughly enjoyed her school years at St. Clements School followed by three years in undergrad at U of T when she was accepted at Toronto Dentistry where she completed two years before she fell ill.
Natascha was an extraordinary young woman, combining brilliance and passion with integrity. She was someone who kept her commitments and saw things through. She graced every person with whom she came in contact.

Later in life, Natascha took to Instagram like a fish to water. Together with her pet KAI (kai.the.golden.retriever), she created a new identity. No one could see her. No one could judge her. She loved spreading smiles to make the world a kinder place. Natascha counseled and consoled numerous persons. On Instagram, she touched the lives of over fifty thousand people.
She was totally at peace with herself at the time of her passing. She will be greatly missed by her parents and numerous family members.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Hill House Hospice in honour of Natascha would be appreciated.

Natascha has the most beautiful spirit. We shared a wonderful love and relationship. Her humor on genuine love filled my day with a unique love. She is so missed and I send her my prayers and the family my prayers. A bright light has been dimmed but Natascha spread her light all over the world. I’m grateful to have had her in my life. May she Rest In Peace

I was so deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Natasha. She was a wonderful girl who brightened every class she was in and graced every person with whom she came in contact.

Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family (and Natasha’s soul) at this most challenging time.

The world is a darker place without Natasha. As D.H. Lawrence once said, “The dead are not gone, they just help from a different place.” You have an angel in heaven who will be helping all whom she touched here on earth. May all your good memories help comfort your hurting heart.

In sympathy and with love,
Pat Parisi
