Vivacious and always inviting adventure, Nadia was happiest when exploring her dreams, spending time with family and friends, and skydiving.

Nadia is survived by her mother, her father, her step-father, Kevin, her brother, Chris, her sister-in-law, Georgia, her grandparents, Hartmut and Karin Krieger, her uncle, Boris, and her aunt, Lulu, among countless other family members and friends. Taken too soon from this world, in the hearts of her family and those who knew her, her pursuit of good will never cease to inspire.

LARA LEE CALLOWAY Funeral rites for Lara Lee Calloway will be at 3 p.m. Sunday in the village church at Canada de Los Alamos in the valley below her childhood home on the Old Santa Fe Trail. She died in her sleep on May 3 at home in Chicago. She lived in an artful world filled with colors and fabrics and images and fine trinkets and sacred illuminations and people with stories to tell. Growing up, she worked in Santa Fe galleries, ushered at the Opera and traveled often in Georgia O'Keeffe country. She graduated from St. Michael's High School in 1991 and received a BA in art history from UNM in 1995. She left Santa Fe in her early twenties, drawn to the advanced School of a great museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, where she received a BA in fine arts in 2000. She remained in Chicago, doing photography and fashion, making jewelry, acting in her beloved improv theaters and enjoying urban life while supporting herself with office work, predominantly in the financial district. Last fall she entered a new graduate program at the SAIC about public engagement in events and museums. In a SAIC memorial service, friends and classmates lauded her work and joyful personality. Everyone will miss her humorous portraits of Chicago posted in social media and written with her thumbs while riding on trains and buses. Lara was only 42. She was preceded in death 14 months ago by her mother, Tova Calloway. She is survived by her father, Larry Calloway of Crestone, CO, her sister Maia Calloway and her aunt Linda Jo Calloway.

Klebanoff, Nina A.  
CELEBRATION OF THE LIFE OF NINA A. KLEBANOFF - 1953-2015 We would like you to know that the work of Nina A. Klebanoff, born November 2, 1953 to Robert and Betty Klebanoff in Albuquerque, NM is complete. She received a call to move on May 2, 2015. She did such a great job in her life she was offered a spectacular place where she will be dancing, listening to music, creating music playlists, recycling everything, skiing, or in the wilderness. Her life was full of caring, teaching, and most importantly nursing. Nursing was one of her major passions. She especially loved "home health" care working with older adults in their homes. She drove the back roads of north Texas and northern New Mexico talking and caring for older adults. She began her career in Denver where she received her diploma degree in nursing and later continued her education culminating in receiving her PhD. in nursing from Texas Woman University. She specialized in behavioral health working in hospitals, home care agencies, clinics and almost any other nursing venue. After working many years she ended her career Director of the RN to BSN degree at Northern New Mexico College. The program is based on the principles of holistic nursing and says much about Nina's philosophy in life. She believed and lived by the principles that everything is connected and living "with" the earth and the universe is the highest priority. Nina had many passions: art, being in the wild, kayaking, and most importantly skiing at Taos Ski Valley. She loved Taos so much that even in her last days she was telling her doctors to make a reservation at the St. Bernard to ski next year. Finally she had an insatiable curiosity and a ferocious intellect. She loved talking politics and great ideas, most always having an opinion about everything. We will all remember her enthusiasm for life and her energy to make a difference. She will be terribly missed by so many. Please join us to celebrate Nina's life with her wife Mellis Schmidt, her chosen family and her many friends June 13 at 2:00pm at Bishops Lodge in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
