It is with deep sorrow that the family of Naomi Girvin

of their nine children. Herb and Naomi were married

for 63 years. They lived and raised their five sons in

Cranbrook. Naomi will be remembered for her loving,

caring, kind and generous nature. Naomi welcomed

everyone into her home and no one left without a full

stomach and a warm heart.

Fay (Bea), her sisters Leila (Butch), Wanda (Perry) and

Debbie (Ken), her children Bob (Deb), Randy, David

(Tina) and Jeff (Kittie), her grandchildren Chad, Scott,
