She is survived by her husband of 64 years, Fred A. Naas; a son, Matthew (Julie) Naas of Verona, KY; a sister, Eva (William) Howerton of Paducah; and three grandchildren, Ben, Luke, and Adam Naas. The funeral is at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Brown Funeral Home with Bro. Emory Riley officiating. Burial will follow in Hardin Memorial Park.
