Natalie Schaublin (1963-2019)


In memory of a beloved teacher, Westerville North High School has created the Natalie J. Schaublin Memorial Scholarship Fund.  Schaublin, who passed away in April from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), dedicated her life and career to affecting those around her.  Organizers hope this scholarship will enable her legacy to live on by making a positive impact on students.  Donations are now being accepted to fund this scholarship.  For more information, please visit, https://schaublinmemorialscholarship.wordpress.com/.

A second way to participate is through Natalie’s Heavenly Scent Soap Sale, which runs from October 11-18.  Westerville North’s Chem Gems has created limited edition soaps and bath bombs for this event.  All proceeds from these sales will fund the Schaublin Scholarship.  Orders can be placed at www.wnchemgems.com.  Click on the Heavenly Scents tab.  Schaublin’s family members will be honored during the Westerville North football game on October 11.    

Natalie Jo Schaublin, age 56, passed away on Wednesday April 24, 2019.  She was born on March 14, 1963, in Lima, Ohio, the daughter of Thomas and Carolyn Frail.  Natalie was a 1981 graduate of Lima Shawnee High School, 1985 graduate of Bowling Green State University, and earned her Master’s Degree from The Ohio State University.  For more than 30 years, Natalie dedicated her time to her passion, teaching.  She spent the beginning of her career at the University of Northwestern Ohio, followed by 14 years at the Southeast Career Center in Columbus.  The last 17 years of her professional life was spent at Westerville North High School, where she was head of the Business Education Department, taught various business and computer classes, and ran the school store.  Over the years, many pupils walked into her classroom at the beginning of the year, dreading having to take a “boring” business class.  By year’s end, they wanted to pursue a business degree in college.  She had a gift for teaching students and helping them realize their potential; she believed in them and they, in turn, believed in themselves. Natalie is survived by her husband, Mike Schaublin; and two sons, Matt (Katie) and Kevin Schaublin.
