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.
