Naomi Van Valkenburg

February 27, 1933 - January 05, 2022

Naomi was born on February 27, 1933 in Salt Lake City, Utah, one of 8 children born to Moroni and Elva Jessop. She passed on January 5, 2022. She married Billy C Van Valkenburg in 1949 and gave birth to 6 children over the next few years. She is survived by 4 children, Rex, April, Cindy and Brett. She also has 10 Grandchildren, 7 Great Grandchildren and a host of Nieces and Nephews that she leaves behind.

Billy and Naomi moved to Tucson in 1956 where they spent the rest of their lives. She is preceded in death by her 2 sons Kit, 2018 and Todd in 1968 and husband Billy in 1998. Billy worked his whole life in construction building many of the highways in Arizona. Naomi started working at the Tucson International Airport as a waitress in 1963 for American Airlines Sky Chef which was upstairs back then. She would save her tips and would get on a flight on "standby" with her 6 children ages 7 - 16 and on one trip flew to NYC for the Worlds Fair in 1966, then flew back to California with 6 kids in tow to visit a friend and see San Francisco. She loved to travel and went to Costa Rica in 2015 and Australia in 2016 with her daughter Cindy. She also took many "road trips" which she was eager to take to see America.
Naomi was a mentor for many, she went back to school at the age of 62 and got her C.N.A. (Certified Nurses Assistant) and did Home Health Care for quite a few patients over the years until she gave it up at the age of 84. Many of her patients were younger than her and they all loved her dearly! She has also been part of a Dance Class over the past 25 years and loved to dance, she had some pretty good moves.
