On October 13, 1974, God released an angel named Natarsha Yulonda Bloomfield to begin her earthly journey. She was born to James H. and Mattie Kendle Bloomfield in Thomasville, North Carolina. In the blink of an eye, but with open arms, God quietly welcomed his daughter, Natarsha home on Sunday, November 7, 2021.
Natarsha loved the Lord. In her formative years, she was a member of the First Missionary Baptist Church located in Thomasville, NC. She was baptized at the age of 12 and became an active member of the church, working hard in Sunday school and singing in the youth choir. She was a member for 23 years.
Natarsha, who would go on to become an educator herself, received her grade school education from Guilford County Public Schools. She graduated from Southwest Guilford High School with the class of 1992. She enrolled in Elizabeth City State University in 1993, and in May of 1997, received a Bachelors of Science degree in Criminal Justice. While at her beloved ECSU, Natarsha also became a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. in the Spring of 1997. She created lasting friendships with many of her classmates and fellow Vikings.
Following ECSU, Natarsha continued her education and received a Masters degree in Special Education from Grand Canyon University. During her long-standing career as a teacher, she worked with a God-given passion. Her students and their parents quickly became her close friends. She was privileged to be employed with the District of Columbia Public School System, and was able to pursue her passion of instructing and mentoring children at her most recent school, St. Coletta of Greater Washington in Washington DC.
Natarsha was actively involved in her beloved church, Winners Chapel Int’l Maryland, located in Bowie MD. She served as an Usher, the Nehemiah, and Follow Up Units, and frequently performed outreach, working to bring souls to Christ. She loved serving God, and was committed to the expansion of God’s kingdom through the church.
In her leisure time, Natarsha, lovingly known by many of her family and friends as "Boonie," enjoyed music, watching international films, traveling, and eating good food. She loved coffee almost as much as she enjoyed helping others in need, as well as spending time with friends and family members. She was very thoughtful and giving. Many could easily testify to how she reached out to give anyone a helping hand.
Natarsha’s was preceded in death by paternal grandparents, James and Jennie Bloomfield, maternal grandparents, David and Sadie Kendle, and brother, James H. Bloomfield, Jr. She leaves to cherish fond and precious memories to her daughter, Tia Wright; her father and mother, James H. and Mattie Bloomfield; her sister, Crystal (Charles) Gatling and her niece Ryleigh Gatling, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and other loving relatives, and friends and Princeton her beloved Yorkie-Poo.
