After a near-death experience, Natty Hollmann de Petrosino dedicated the rest of her life to serving the poor.
In her early 20s, Natty Hollmann de Petrosino had no need to beg. Not only was she a model and actress, but she’d formed a family that lived comfortably in Bahía Blanca, a coastal town in Argentina.
However, everything changed after she almost died during ear surgery due to cancer at age 27. She made a sharp turn in her life and embraced her “heavenly family” down the street.
She remained known for charitable work in Argentina for more than 50 years, until she passed away on July 26, 2021, at the age of 81, after a battle with COVID-19. Many consider her an Argentine “Mother Teresa.”
