  1. Edna and Jack Gay Says:

    We were very sorry to read that Naomi Doti had passed away. Naomi was a long-time member of the Shawnee Bridge Club at the Civic Center where we played bridge every Monday for the past l4 years. I remember the last time Noami came and couldn’t find her name tag, although everyone knew who she was. I think she was just checking to see how many high score gold stars she had. She will be missed. We offer our prayers and condolences to her family.

    I wish to express my deepest sympathy to all of you. I am in charge of a bridge club that plays at Regents Walk once a month and Naomi was a member of my group. Needless to say, she was a very popular member, she was always so gracious and caring. She will be sorely missed not only by me but by all of the other members of the group.

    I will be out of town when her memorial service is held, but I did want you to know how grateful I am to have known her.

    May God bless all of you.

    I would like to send my condolences to the friends and family of Naomi. I knew her from our days at Rosebud School near Wakenda, MO, we were such close friends. We both went different ways and lost contact, but I never forgot what a good friend she was. We were kids and I can remember how we would make nests for the Easter Bunny at the school.

    I was very sorry to see that she had passed away. I actually worked with her when I was in high school at Montgomery Wards. She was a wonderful lady.

    I wish to express my deepest sympathy in the passing of Naomi Doty. I have the fondest memories of our antique outings together through the years. Naomi came along an many outings with Diane and I. I will never forget her fondeness for birds. She could not get around as fast as Diane and I, but would take breaks on a bench sipping her water. I will sadly miss her company and our conversations. Fondly, Lynn Schutzel
