Linda Moore Navas, 57, a longtime journalist, died March 25 at her home in Glendale after a decade-long battle with breast cancer.

Mrs. Navas was born in Columbus, Ohio, and graduated with a degree in journalism from Ohio State University in 1973. She performed postgraduate work at Stanford University in the mid-1980s.

She worked for the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch in the early 1970s before writing for the Baltimore Sun from 1974 to 1982.

She worked for Insight Magazine, a sister publication of The Washington Times, from 1983 to 1992.

Mrs. Navas was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997.

She is survived by her husband, George; a son, Michael; a brother, Donald Currey; sisters, Beth Lyons and Judy Bond; and mother, Marguerite Currey.

Mrs. Navas wrote an obituary for herself several years ago, which reads in part: “She lived to share photographs, to raise her son, to adore her cats, and to feed birds. A Buckeye by birth, a journalist by training, she wrote to use her gift for languages. It means the world to her that you remember her tolerance, her competence, her generosity and her smile after she’s gone (too soon).”

She will be buried in Columbus, Ohio, on Monday.
