  1. My goodness! I just found out about Grandma Naomi’s passing. We have been out of touch the last 5 years since I moved to Hawaii. My condolences to her family and friends and all who love her. Jim, Don and Bill, please contact me. I would love to stay in touch…and I apologize for being out of touch. Love and blessings to all, Desiree Watson (Nancy Stevens daughter)

  2. My fondest memories of Naomi are the ones when she was my Sunday school teacher. We had so much fun reading the bible and doing the activities. St. Paul United Methodist Church was a wonderful place with her there to be an inspiration to us all.
    With all my love to the family,
    Jeannette Frantz

  3. I am the counselor at Avondale Elementary School. I knew your mother as a vital part of our Saturday Reading Club and a very sweet lady. She always had a smile and something kind to say to the students. She also encouraged them to keep reading and let them know that they were wonderful and special. She participated in the reading club for many years. It was a privilege to get to know your mother for all the years she dedicated herself to the program to help encourage our students to read. She was always there listening and smiling. I am truly sorry for your loss she will be missed by many.
    Sincerely, Vickie Roskey

  4. My name is Rebecca. I am a 4th grade student at Avondale Elementary School. I am 10 years old. What I remember about Naomi when I use to meet with her to read on Saturday was that she always use to smile at me and was happy to see me. She told me once that she use to work in a school a long time ago. She was very nice and kind. Sometime she seemed tired but she always had a smile for me and all of the other kids. I miss her very much. I am very sorry that you are feeling sad because she is gone.
    Sincerely, Rebecca

  5. My name is Cedric, I am in 4th grade at Avondale Elementary and I am 10 years old. I belong to the Avondale Elementary Saturday Reading Club and I remember coming on Saturdays to read to Naomi. What I remember about her is she was a very kind woman and she always smiled at me and she always use to ask me questions about myself and she was always happy to see me. I’m sorry she’s gone and I will miss her nice smile at Saturday Reading Club.

  6. I’m so sorry that you lost your dear mother. I knew Naomi from the Villa. I’ve worked in the Foundation for 8 years and had the privledge of knowing her, visiting her and having lunch with her on many occasions. In my mind there will never be another to take her place. We would always sit together at the New Resident Breakfast at the Villa every month. Needless to say, Naomi was blessed with a delightful sense of humor that made her so special. I feel fortunate to have visited her the day before she passed and was able to tell her that I loved her. She was a wonderful lady. May God bless all of your family and give you strength in your grief.

  7. Sorry to hear of the loss of Aunt Na. Guess I along with some of the others remember the great hugs she gave. I will not be able to attend the service but my thoughts are with all of you.

  8. Our thoughts and prayer are with you and your family!!! Aunt Na was a very special person in our lives. We enjoyed her visits. I just have to think how Uncle Earl will meet her with open arms.

    Sorry I can’t be there for her memorial but my heart will be there. God Bless.


  9. Naomi was a very dear friend. She will be missed very much. Naomi and I were members of Pilot Club for many years. We also, met once a month for lunch with other Pilot Club members and friends.

  10. I was saddened to read that Naomi had passed away. She was the Parkview Elementary secretary when my children went to school there. She was a very sweet, caring person. We ran into each other in recent years and had a nice visit. We even exchanged Christmas cards for several years. I know you will miss her greatly.

  11. I will always remember the beautiful smile that Aunt Na always had. I also remember how good she smelled when she hugged us. I am sorry I can’t be there in person, but my thoughts and prayers will be with you all.

  12. My condolences go out to the family of Naomi Brooks. She was a very sweet lady I got to know her while living in pueblo. She was a dear friend of mine and my family. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Now she is up in heaven with my mom and they can catch up on what they have missed.

  13. Aunt Na was always a very special person in our lives. We spent many enjoyable weekends and had fun times with them during the period when I lived in Colorado Springs and spent much of our free time with Aunt Na and Uncle Earl.

    Sorry I can’t be there with the family at this time but know I will be thinking of you all.

    Love Ed

  14. I always remember how pretty Aunt Na was and how good she smelled when she gave you a big hug. Our yearly trips to Pueblo are one of my most cherished childhood memories. I am unable to be there but please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs and kisses to all!
