NEWPORT NEWS - Naomi Louise Berrien, beloved wife of Richard E. Berrien, passed peacefully into her rest March 21, 2014, gently cradled in his loving arms. Naomi and Richard married March 28, 1943, while Richard was on brief leave from the Navy. In March 2013, they joyfully renewed their wedding vows. Theirs is a 71 year long love story that continues to inspire all their family and those who knew them. Naomi was born September 7, 1923, in Trenton, NJ, where she graduated from Trenton High School 1941. She was active in her Hamilton Township, NJ, community, serving with the Nottingham Women's Club, a dance club, St. Mark's Lutheran Church, and Friends of the Library. She was employed for many years as a secretary at Hamilton High School, Trenton, NJ. For over 25 years, Richard and Naomi spent their winter months in Camp Florida Resort, Lake Placid FL, where Naomi enjoyed activities with a Bible Study and Red Hat Society events. Each summer, they returned to their home in Columbus, NJ. Naomi was predeceased by her parents, Joseph A. Harrison and Marguerite Schulze Harrison, and a brother, Richard A. Harrison.
