Mary Lea Jabara

Jabara, Mary, was born April 6, 1929 in Coldwater, KS to Michael and Julia Jabara and died Thursday, March 1, 2012. Of nine siblings, Mary is survived by her sister, Martha Sharp. Mary was very close to her family, and for many years ninety-plus Jabaras have met annually at her home for their family reunion. With her fine cooking, she also made a haven for her many friends. Mary was an actress, theater director, artist and teacher. Her sister said, “Mary could do anything from build a stage set to paint a house.” She was an “Auntie Mame” to her nieces and nephews and a treasured “Miss J.” to her students. In the early 1980’s Mary and her friend Carol Hill started “From the Studio” offering art/craft shows and good food from their “Studio in the Woods.” Others have joined the group through the years, and until recently, Mary has been actively producing jewelry and helping to “stage the show.” Family and close friends are invited to her home on Sunday, March 11th from 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m., a time for remembering. Memorial established with the Mary Jabara Artist Fund at Southwest National Bank – Indian Hills Branch, 2700 W. 13th, Wichita, KS 67203.
