The world received the devastating news that on Monday morning December 7, 2020, Natalie Desselle Reid at 53-years-old passed away due to colon cancer. It was a private battle she was facing with the support of her husband Leonard Reid and three children that she leaves memories of priceless family time with. Desselle Reid developed the reputation of being “sweet and giving” as her peers recollect interactions with her during this unfortunate time. Recounting her steps, Desselle Reid realized early on that she had a gift of mastering multiple characters and found the stage to be a fitting home to invite people to showcase her talent. The stage was beckoning her name again, as she prepared for B.A.P.S live play before the COVID-19 outbreak delayed production. Desselle Reid learned of her condition earlier this year and spent her last few days in hospice care.
