Naomi was blessed with a beautiful singing voice that she used by giving praise to God and by sharing her gift with everyone by singing in the church choir. She was a devoted church member of the Faith Gospel Center in Vallejo, California and was a part of their Ladies Missionary Corps (LMC).
Naomi is survived by her husband Fernando; by her children and their spouses Jonathan (Renee), Nephtali (Sheila), Abigail, and Joshua (Genie); by her grandchildren Star, Josiah, Caeleb, Mikah, Isaac, Lenneah, Noah and Elijah; and by her siblings Samuel, Filemon Jr., Dorcas, Jeremiah and Sarah.
She had cultivated many friendships and relationships and she embraced and held everyone closely to her heart. She considered everyone as family. She touched many lives and she will be missed by many.
If only the love that’s on this earth could have saved you, you would still be here with us. You are now in Eternal Love with your Heavenly Father. We look forward to seeing you again.
