After a fantastic life, it is with sadness that we have had to say goodbye to Naomi. She was born and raised in Manitoba where she met her husband Hubert. They had three children: Gordon, Heather and Myrle. In 1946 they moved to Coombs, BC and set up home. Everyone was always welcome at her house. She was a great cook and even better baker. Her scones were the best! She had many pen pals all over the world. She was always knitting, crocheting or quilting and it was not uncommon for her to be up all hours of the night working on some project.
Naomi was predeceased by her husband Hubert (1983), son Gordon (1937), and son-in-law Roy (1998). Survived by her daughters Heather Acton and Myrle Hagenbuch, 5 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
A Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, October 5, 2003 at 1:30 p.m. at Grace United Church in Coombs, BC with Reverend Phil Spencer officiating.
