Naomi Hall Lamar

Naomi Hall Lamar, 92, of Lewisport, passed away on Saturday, February 20, 2021 at the Heartford House.  She born in Graham, Ky to her wonderful parents, Luther and Maud Loney Hall on October 15, 1928.  Naomi graduated from Graham High School in 1947.

Naomi was preceded in death by her parents, 3 brothers, 4 sisters and her beloved husband, Kenneth C. Lamar in 2009.  She retired from Hancock County Board of Education, where she worked at the Middle School for 18 years.  Naomi was just a quiet country girl, who loved cooking, quilting reading and digging in the dirt.  She enjoyed raising a big garden, canning and freezing all those veggies.

She was President of Lewisport Senior Citizens and was a Kentucky Colonel.  Naomi was a member of Lewisport United Methodist Church for 50 years, where she taught Sunday School, sang in the choir and at one time even cleaned the floors and dusted the pews.  The last few years, she had just filled space on the back pew with LaVern, Karen, Betty, Kate, Leona and anyone else that crowded in.

She leaves a daughter, Anita Lamar; a son, Eddie Lamar, grandchildren, Parker Findlay, Stephen Lamar and K.C. Lamar; step granddaughter, Betty Jo Banifield; step grandson, Ronnie Hicks; a dear cousin, Rita Newbert and several nieces and nephews.

Graveside services will be held at Lewisport Cemetery around 3 pm on Monday, February 22, 2021.  Naomi’s family will be greeting friends at Gibson & Son Funeral Home, Lewisport on Monday from 1 pm until 3 pm.  Memorial contributions may be made to The Heartford House.  Share your memories and condolences with Naomi’s family at www.gibsonandsonfh.com.
