August 11, 1956 – June 6, 2021
Kara Naber, 8/11/1956 to 6/6/2021, born in Healdsburg, CA. sadly passed on to the next unknown journey in life. Hers was a long fight with lung cancer that she just couldn’t win. She passed away in Spokane WA at Sacred Heart Hospital. Kara was a loving, devoted wife, the best sister ever, humanitarian, archeologist, ESL teacher, newspaper reporter, published writer, talented seamstress, avid fighter of women’s rights especially in Mexico and Latin America. She won the hearts of everyone she met and sent laughter and good humor to all - and stayed bonded to them throughout her lovely life. Kara was involved with Border Partners working alongside the women of Puerto Palomas, in Chihuahua, Mexico, helping border residents achieve their goals. One of her passions was The Palomas Oilcloth Design which are crafted by a group of women who design and sew on Mexican oilcloth to earn a stable income. Kara is survived by her husband, Mark Andrews; her sister, Mary Naber; brother, John Naber; mother, Dolores Naber; uncle and aunt, Ed Sbragia & Jane Carr; aunt, Fern Naber; niece, Jessica Coppola; and many cousins and friends.
