Memories Timeline


  1. Moorhead MN
    Naomi was always happy to see me relieve her at work as if she felt I would take good care of her patients. She was always kind and friendly to me. I will not forget her.

  3. Bellvue ColoradoDebbie, Mike and Vickie and families.
    So sorry to learn of your mother’s passing.
    I met her when I was 11 years old and started school in Horace. Since we were married to brother’s, we spent a lot of time together out at Grandma and Grandpa’s farm. Many memories from those days.
    You three and my three kids were all close to the same age and together with the Worner and Hintgen kids were quite a clan.
    You have all of our Sympathy. God be with you all at this difficult time of loss.

  4. Longmont CODeb, Mike and Vicki,

    I will never forget Naomi’s wonderful cooking. I remember staying at your house as a little girl and she would always make something wonderful. I will never forget the time she made pizza and put so many hot peppers on it, we could barely eat it. We all laughed, including Naomi who had no idea how hot the peppers were.

    I loved Naomi’s smile and great sense of humor and know she will be sadly missed.

  5. North Little Rock, ArkansasNaomi & I were best friends during grade school. We had sleepovers, played house, school, and farm with trucks in the dirt. In the winter months we’d ice skate on the Sheyenne River. The famlies moved so we lost contact for years. She is a big part of my childhood memories. Was so sad to read of her passing. The family is in my prayers.

  6. fargo ndSo sorry for your loss. I worked with Naomi and she was a very dedicated lady and had many visits. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time.
