Dara Lane Englebright, 37, of Martinsburg, WV, passed away on Sunday, October 25th following a very brave 4-year battle with cancer.

Dara graduated from Jefferson High School in 2001 and went on to earn an Associate Degree from Hagerstown Business College in 2004.

Dara will be remembered for her love of animals, her kindness, and her sense of humor.  She had 5 dogs because she could never say “no” to anyone in need.  She loved her family, 80’s music, and old movies.

She is survived by one son, Paul Drutch of Ellicott City, MD; her father, Kevin Englebright of Martinsburg; long-term partner, Larry D. Boyd of Martinsburg; maternal grandmother, Peggy Hendricks of Martinsburg; her aunt and uncle Dana and Clayton Anders of Shenandoah Junction; her aunt and uncle Joyce and Stephen Englebright of Martinsburg; cousins Clay Anders of Shepherdstown, Carly Anders of San Diego, CA,  Brian Englebright of Martinsburg; dozens of beloved extended family members, countless friends, and her five dogs.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Cynthia Englebright, maternal grandfather, Daniel Hendricks, and her paternal grandparents, Kenneth and Annabelle Englebright.

Services and interment will be private.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Berkeley County Humane Society, 554 Charles Town Road, Martinsburg, WV 25405.

Arrangements by Brown Funeral Home.
