Naomi lived a full life as a wonderful mother, wife, and homemaker. She loved to cook, kept an immaculate house, and enjoyed crocheting. Most of all she loved her family and instilled in her children a strong desire to live a life pleasing to God, instilling values that have served them well. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
