February 1, 1936 – November 10, 2021

Peacefully with family by her side; survived by her daughters: Rena (husband Erick), Lesley (husband Bow) and Marla; grandchildren: Shannon, Shae, North, Haley and Rheo; great-grandchildren: Jessica, Shelby, Emma and Mason; great-great-grandchildren: Kane, Damon, and Loki; along with numerous nieces, nephews and lifetime friends, Pam Harris and June Gillies.
Naomi was predeceased by her parents: Raymond and Marion Foster; brother Gerry Foster; first husband Ronald Madden and second husband Gerald Daignault. Naomi will also be missed by her partner for the past 10 years, Ronald Gunn; friends from Paradise Village and Jenny, the last of many canine companions during her lifetime.
Naomi settled into Paradise Village, Ste. Anne, MB., for the past 21 years of life, but enjoyed years in Winnipeg, MB., Burlington, ON., Comox and Mayne Island, BC., along with many wonderful summers on Lake of the Woods, Kenora, ON.
She had a proficiency in poetry, was an avid reader and had a natural talent for art. Her children and grandchildren can recite her favourite saying of "apple pie without cheese is like a kiss without a squeeze."
We release you with love to the whispers of the pine trees, the crash of the waves and the call of the loons.
Cremation has taken place with a family gathering next year.
If friends so desire, donations in her memory can be made to your local animal shelter or the Ste. Anne Hospital, MB.
The family would like to acknowledge and thank specifically Dr. Demers and the wonderful caring nurses and staff for their compassion and professionalism during a difficult time.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Naomi was my next-door neighbour and the first person I met when I moved to Paradise Village in 2002. She made me feel immediately welcome, and became a good friend and remained so even after I left the village. I appreciated her down-to-earth common sense and her lively humour. It was a privilege to have known her, and she will be greatly missed. My sincere sympathy to her family, to Ron, and to her many friends. - Posted by: Barbara Crosby (Friend/ neighbour) on: Nov 13, 2021

  • For many years Nonie worked as the right hand for the president of Spiroll and then Spiroll Kipp Kelly. Dad relied on her organizational ability, cheery smile and her ability to make the day better and she certainly rose to the challenge of his many commitments and travel schedule. She will be remembered with joy. - Posted by: Jane Sellers Anema (Daughter of a former employer) on: Nov 13, 2021
