Obituary

Natalia (Applegate) Wilkins, 85, of Westfield passed away May 8, 2022, following a short bout with cancer. She was born January 9, 1937, in Carmel, an only child of the late Jerald and Thelma (Goodner) Applegate. She remained a lifelong resident of Hamilton County.

After raising her children, she pursued her dream of becoming a nurse. Graduating nurses training, she began working at St. Vincent Hospital, Indianapolis, in 1984 where she worked in the Cardiac Critical Care Unit, where she worked 15 years fulfilling her calling. In 1999, Natalia retired to care for her dad and enjoy the grandchildren.

Her passion was spending time with her children and grandchildren, whom she loved deeply. Natalia would say “a great day is playing with my grandchildren in my playhouse!” She loved the holiday festivities, maintaining a beautiful lawn and flowers of all varieties. Natalia was an avid train enthusiast. Her greatest joy of all was the few hours she spent with Fred before he passed.

Survivors include her devoted children, Jacinta (Tom) Stephenson, Derinda Vessely, and Devon (Tracey) Wilkins; 6 grandchildren, Wilson (Dani) Vessely, Anna Vessely, Jennifer (Dan) Chester, Jason (Nicole) Clark, and Jill Gilmer, and Joe Clark; 5 great-grandchildren, Mav Chester, Averie Clark, Nichole Clark, Layla Clark, and Lane Clark.
