May 23, 1927 ‒ October 31, 2017
Naomi Ruth Carr, age 90, of Marion, passed away Tuesday, October 31, 2017 at her home.

On May 27, 1944 Naomi marred Franklin F. Carr who preceded her in death on March 27, 2006. Together they enjoyed 62 years of marriage, raising their children and spending time outside Naomi and Frank were members of Swamp Foxes, Star Gazers, and N.C.H.A.
Naomi worked for The F.W. Woolworth Company for many years and later retired from The Wilson Bohannan Company. Not being able to sit still after retirement, Naomi continued to work as a demonstrator for many local stores.
Naomi had a knack for shopping and not a day went by that she was not in a store. In younger years, Naomi loved to cook and had a large collection of cookbooks. If Naomi was missing she was sure to be found playing BINGO.
At the heart of it all, Naomi’s pride and joy was her family who will deeply miss her.
