Naomi Roseberry died on April 18, 2008 at 1:35 p.m. at the Hospice of Northwest Ohio after a 14 week battle with cancer. She was born in Shippingport, PA on July 20, 1920 daughter of Alfred and Alice Hayward Brown deceased of Smith Ferry, PA. She graduated from Midland High School. Naomi is survived by a brother John Mary Jane Brown of Beaver, PA; two sisters Mary Alice Sayre and Hazel Richard Webb of Midland, PA; and her children, James A. Teresa Hamilton of Skillman, NJ; Barbara Jo Gary Serago of Phoenix, AZ and Jacqueline Sue Jon Davis of Temperence, MI. Her step-children Patricia Laren Johnson, Mechanicsville, PA; Carolyn Earl Pander, Wellsville, OH and Regis Rosie Roseberry, East Liverpool, OH.

Naomi had 13 great grandchildren.

Naomi worked at Hills Department Store from opening day to her retirement in 1982. Naomi’s work also included child care and she loved her Kirkbride and Dysart ‘children’. Her most important job and one she was excellent at was that of Mother, Grandmother and friend. Naomi was an active member of Longs Run United Presbyterian Church since 1952. Her love for God and people inspired her to remain active in many clubs and organizations that brought people together: Longs Run Presbyterian Church, Presbyterian Women’s Association, Founding member of Triangle Seniors, East Liverpool Area Senior Citizens, Hannah Circle, Ethel Chambers, Salvation Army, and her beloved card games with her friends.

Naomi will live forever in God’s hands and her family and friend’s hearts. Her name will live on with her namesake and great granddaughter, Ana Naomi Meyers.

Family will be present to receive friends at the Calcutta Chapel of the Martin MacLean Altmeyer Funeral Homes on Monday, April 21, 2008, from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8.

Services will be on Tuesday, April 22, 2008, at the Longs Run United Presbyterian Church at 11:00 AM, with Rev. Dr. Stephen Cramer officiating. Burial will follow in the Longs Run Cemetery.

The family requests memorials be made in Naomi’s name to her beloved Church or the Hospice that took such wonderful care of her during her illness: Long’s Run Presbyterian Church, 15851 Long Church Road, East Liverpool, OH 43920; Hospice of Northwest Ohio, 800 South Detroit Avenue, Toledo, OH 43609.

Barb and family, Within such a short time, the good Lord took two wonderful people home to rest with Him. We have warm, loving, caring memories that will live in our hearts forever. The loss will always be a void in our hearts, but the love we’ve known and shared with them will last throughout our life time! Love and prayers to you and your family.

Barbara Jo, Jackie and Jim, Know we are thinking about you as you deal with this new milestone in your life. Remember, this is not an ending. It is a wonderful beginning for your Mom and she deserves the best as she enters this third phase of life. – Dad and Von Gail

Dear Barb, Jackie and extended families.

David and I would like to extend our sympathy on the passing of your Mother. Naomi and I worked together at Hill’s as well as your Mom taking care of our daughter, Patty with other families mentioned. All those little ones loved her and she was a third grandmother to Pattty. It was sure great for her to be there with all the little ones as Patty was an “only” child for a quite a few years and she needed the company as we needed a babysitter, it was great! Again, please accept our sympathy on the passing of a great lady. Sincerely, David and Shirley Weldon

Sorry about your mom. I don’t think I’d seen her since we were in high school. Sounds like she lived a full life.

I knew your sister was in Temperance, but I never thought your mom would ever be in Hospice of NWO. I hope Hospice was a source of comfort. Susan’s dad spent about six months in the Perrysburg facility and it is a wonderful organization. Susan does volunteer work there now.

You have our deepest sympathy.

Jim Theresa and daughters, what a lady your mom was! She was such a mentor to many of us in our formative years in high school. She has a calling in another venue now and I’m certain she will be offering her good, guidance there also. Jim, my deepest condolences to a class mom who will always hold a special place in my heart. God has taken one of the best to be with him!

Jim,

We were so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. We hadn’t seen her for many years but have memories of how kind and friendly she always was to us in our early days in Calcutta. We have both lost our mothers in recent years and know the pain you are feeling now. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

Jim, Barb, Jackie and families …

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Naomi was a strong person. It is impossible for me to think about her without visualizing her huge smile. Regardless of what difficulty she may have been dealing with, I only witnessed her will to make the best of it. I’m thankful to have known her. I’ll see you Mon or Tues.
