Our beautiful mother and grandmother, Naomi A. Jolley, returned to her Heavenly Father on April 17, 2014, surrounded by the comfort of her family. She was born on February 4, 1925, in Lincoln, Neb., to the late Leila and Edgar Wobig. After the loss of her husband she moved to Tooele to be with her mother and family.
Naomi was a gifted seamstress and exceptional at crocheting. She enjoyed entering her crafts into fairs and giving them away as gifts to friends and family members. She won many blue ribbons at fairs for her talented art.
Naomi was a beloved member of the nursing home community. She worked at the nursing home for 25 years. Her patients enjoyed her company and care. She has spent the last few years at the Tooele Nursing Home and was thankful to be in such good hands during the remainder of her life.
Naomi is survived by her three daughters: Mary (Ray) Page, Elizabeth (Gene) Medina, and Sherry (Tommy) Wilson. She is also survived by 13 grandchildren, 42 great grandchildren and 33 great great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Eugene Watkins, her son Sammuel Watkins, grandson Darrel Finch, a great granddaughter and two great great grandchildren.
A viewing will be held on Wednesday, April 23, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 am at the LDS Tooele Stake Center located on 253 S 200 East, Tooele, UT. A graveside service will take place following the viewing.
