In Loving Memory of Nathalie Alexandra Rubin

Fund Type: Memorial Donations

Wilmington, NC

Fundraiser ends on May 17, 2024

Remembering Nathalie Alexandra Rubin, a beloved educator and animal lover whose legacy of compassion lives on through the Cape Fear Community College Veterinary Medical Technology Program (CFCC VMT).

In loving memory of the remarkable Nathalie Alexandra Rubin, whose vibrant spirit touched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing her. Born on January 29, 1977, in Bologna, Italy, Nathalie's journey on this earth came to a close on April 8, 2024, in Wilmington, North Carolina, at the age of 47.

Nathalie's passion for teaching and nurturing extended beyond boundaries, as evidenced by her impactful role as the Veterinary Medical Technology Faculty Veterinarian and Instructor at Cape Fear Community College. Her infectious enthusiasm and dedication inspired countless students and colleagues alike, leaving an indelible mark on the community she served.

Outside of her professional endeavors, Nathalie found solace in caring for animals, immersing herself in literature, enjoying beach outings, traveling the world, and sharing joyful moments with loved ones over board games. Her laughter was like music, and her smile illuminated the darkest of days.

Preceded in death by her father, Mark Phillip Rubin, M.D., Nathalie is survived by her loving mother, family, and friends. She also leaves behind her cherished fur babies – Jasper, Watson, Jilly, and Bengen – who were her loyal companions throughout her life's adventures.

In accordance with Nathalie's final wishes, her family, friends, and colleagues have established this donation opportunity to benefit the VMT students by funding their required Rabies Vaccinations. This Memorial Fund will also honor Nathalie by dedicating, in naming, the VMT Scrub Room "Dr. Nathalie Rubin's Scrub Room". This space symbolizes Nathalie's joy, laughter, and meaningful learning interactions with the VMT community, whom she regarded as family. While Nathalie's presence will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her, her memory will bring smiles and laughter to her CFCC family each time they see her name proudly displayed on the glass wall of the VMT Scrub Room.

Let us come together to celebrate the life of Dr. Nathalie Alexandra Rubin, a shining light who graced us with her kindness, laughter, and unwavering love. Thank you for considering a donation in her honor.

Natalie's was a childhood friend of mine. She lived boldly and was a ton of fun to be with. Her laugh and joy was absolutely infectious. I will always remember the summer at HBI and the trip to England. Your love of animals and adventure lives in my heart.
