Naoma was very devoted to both the Lord and her family. Naoma was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved others and regularly was found serving those around her as a neighbor, a friend, a mother, a grandmother, and a Relief Society President for her church. She loved spending time with her family. She was very active in her children’s and grandchildren’s lives and was continually attending their events and supporting them in any way she could. She loved being out in nature and especially loved planting flowers and enjoying them. She had a kind heart and loved and served those around her as the Savior would. She will be greatly missed.
Survivors include her daughters; Mindy Morby and husband Michael, and Tiffany Ransom and husband John, all of Lee’s Summit, MO; seven beloved grandchildren: Caden, McKenna, Kaylianne, McCoy, Annalease, Leeton and Paxton; and her sister, Lee Ann Freeze.
