Kara Jean Spiers, 42, was called from this world June 13, 2016 to be with God. She was born in Waterbury, Connecticut to Lynn Taylor Baker and the late Terrance P. Baker. It is the rarest of people who cannot be summed up by their accomplishments of which Kara had many. Instead, her lasting legacy is how she made us all feel about ourselves. Her everlasting smile could brighten the darkest of days. Her infectious laugh could make the worst joke seem funny. Her passion for her children made us all want to be better parents. Her love of charity made us all want to give more. Her mission to serve made us line up behind her so that we could help too. She gave all she had and asked for nothing in return. Having Kara on this Earth, even as shortly as we did, made all who were lucky enough to know her better people. A legacy as rich as this is seldom ever found. The greatest honor of Kara’s memory would be to let someone, anyone know they are loved because that’s what she did for all of us.
Left to cherish her memory besides her mother is her husband, Trevor G. Spiers; children, Rhea Lynn Spiers and Ryder Graham Spiers; brother, Timothy P. Baker; in-laws Victoria R. Spiers, John G. Spiers, Roseli Z. Spiers and many loving friends and extended family members.
A memorial to celebrate her life will be held Tuesday, June 21st, 2016 at 11:00am at Altmeyer Funeral Home – Maestas Chapel, 1801 Baltic Ave. Virginia Beach. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Hampton Roads Whalers National Pee Wee Hockey Team and the Virginia Beach Blades Figure Skating Team may be made in Kara’s name at www.TMCFunding.com .
