In memory of
Naoma peacefully passed away on October 16, 2020, after a short illness. She was 93. She was raised in St. Helens, Oregon. In 1946 Naoma married Kennith Duhaime. They moved to Los Angeles in 1948, where they had their son, Steven. Mom later married James Marshall. They bought their home in Anaheim in 1954. Throughout 56 years of marriage, they trekked to Clear Lake for family reunions, played Pinochle until late into the night, golfed, and enjoyed a few cruises. Mom picked up Dad's interest in sports after he passed. She was a serious California Angel and Anaheim Duck fan. Mom enjoyed jigsaw puzzles - right up to the week prior to passing. She had a passion for planning and organizing. Something we all envy! Mom showed us how to care sincerely, love deeply and never give up hope. An example of this is how she cared for Dad, throughout his long illness, with unwavering love. Her door was open to a long list of family, friends and neighbors. Mom unselfishly put others before herself. She had a box full of toys for grandkids when they stopped by. She made ALL holidays memorable and fun. Mom stayed up very late each Christmas Eve to wrap, and wrap! Her genuine love is reflected in all who knew her. Mom loved the daily comic characters, especially 'Snoopy'. So we close with a word from Snoopy's friend, Charlie Brown. "Perhaps they are not stars in the sky but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy" Mom is survived by her 5 children, Steven (Kathy), Roxann (Al), Jim Jr. (LaOng), Diane (Michael) and LoriAnn. Her family includes 7 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great grandchildren. In our hearts, we know you are happy Mom.
