Amelia was truly a shining star!
Especially in the lives of her children, grandchildren and hus-band.
She embraced and reflected the beauty around her and her artistic attention to detail and witty, laughing spirit made everyone feel cared for, comfortable and at ease.
Amelia is survived by her husband of 31 years, Gary Naught; brother, Myles Lea, of Spokane; sister, Jerine Shoquist, of Montana; sons, Taze Carey and Wyatt Carey, of Spokane; and numerous grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her mother, Jenny and father, Eldon.
Amelia taught through example to find joy in the simple things; to be accepting, forgiving and to celebrate life.
She was an exceptional woman and will be greatly missed.
At Amelia’s request, there will be no services.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the National Osteoporosis Foundation.
