Natalie Jean Myers Cutler was born in Brookline, Massachusetts in 1934 to Benjamin and Francis Myers; sister to Mildred, Alma and Herbert Myers. She was voted “most creative” at Brookline High in Boston. She graduated from the University of Massachusetts with a BA in history. Soon after, she married and became a homemaker, raising three children. In 1971, she earned a Masters in Public Administration from American University in Washington, D.C. She worked 24 years for the federal government, in the Department of Health and Human Services, and then the Justice Department. She retired as a senior procurement analyst for the F.B.I. within the Justice Department and was honored by the Assistant Attorney General for her meritorious service. After retiring, Mom chose to spend the winter months with family in Tucson and took courses in photography, Tai Chi, art and literature.

Natalie Myers Cutler was a devoted mother and grandmother. She had many interesting friends and was herself a loyal friend. She was an avid reader and quite content to stay at home with a good book. She enjoyed traveling, art and photography. She had her share of disappointments, but persevered with a smile. We spent many pleasant summers together in Chincoteague Island, Virginia, where Mom has a beach house; it is her final resting place.

We are proud to honor our mother, the special woman that she was.
