Naomi was influential in Cleburne as she started Beta Sigma Phi sorority and was Camp Fire Leader to many young girls. In 1979, she started working at the Glen Rose nuclear plant as an electrical drafter for 10 years until her retirement.

Also preceding her in death were her father, James Thompson and mother, Aleene Hollbrook and husband, Harry.
