Naomi R. Craig of Butler
“Say not in grief she is no more but in thankfulness that she was”-Hebrew Proverb.
It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of our Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother Naomi Ruth Boyd Craig on July 16, 2021. Her love of life began with her birth on July 15th,1930 and continued for 91 years when God called her home. Her husband of 48 years, Robert D Craig, preceded her in death November 7th, 1997.
For those who knew Naomi best, whose lives were forever changed as a result, it didn’t take long to figure out that her family was her greatest treasure on this earth. Her legacy now remains with her family whom she taught to live life fully with love and laughter.
She is survived by her two sons, L. Robert (Joan) Craig, Marlin (Penny) Craig, her three daughters Sharon (James) Schaefer, Janet (Glenn) Douthett and Edna (Raymond) Bowser. Her son Randy A. Craig, who passed away January 22, 2011 was no doubt waiting in Heaven to greet her. She also leaves behind 14 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren, and one great great grandchild who will greatly miss their Grammy.
She spoke often of and dearly missed her parents, Edgar S. Boyd and Mabel E. DeArmitt Boyd and her four brothers, Vaughn Boyd, Richard Boyd, Glenn Boyd and Dennis Boyd who preceded her in death.
Funeral services are private. A Celebration of Naomi’s life will be held at a future date.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Raisley Funeral Home and Cremation Services, pc, 387 Main Street, Prospect.
