Naomi C. Russell, 86, of Lancaster entered into eternal rest Sunday, December 23, 2012 at Lancashire Hall following a lengthy illness.

Born in Rohrerstown she was the daughter of the late Elmer L. and Naomi Ruth McQueney.

A lifelong resident of Lancaster, Naomi, worked 27 years at the former Keppel’s Candy Factory.  She later retired from the former Kerr Glass Company after 18 years of service.

Naomi was an avid Philadelphia Phillies baseball fan, traveling by train, bus, and car to see many games in her lifetime.  The most exciting game was the final game of the 1980 World Series when the Phillies won!  In her retirement, Naomi enjoyed traveling to Atlantic City trying her luck at the slots.  She also loved going to Central Market, meeting friends for coffee and donuts.  Her greatest pleasure was being with her family.  She attended as many of her grandchildren’s and great-grandchildren’s school functions, sporting events, concerts and recitals as possible while loudly cheering them on.

Naomi is pre-deceased by her parents, eight siblings and her son-in-law.  She is survived by three children; David J. of Columbia, Deborah L. Kubala (wife of the late John) of Willow Street, PA, and Dale R., (husband of Donna) of Holtwood; 7 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.  She is also survived by her brother Ronald E. McQueney of Rohrerstown.

The family would like to extend their thanks to the staff of Lancashire Hall for the care that Naomi received.  Also a special thank you to Dr. Owen Fox whom Naomi grew to trust, and to Ashleigh Jarema, one of her nurses, whose soft voice and gentle encouragement helped so much during her time living at Lancashire.  Many of the aides also need to be thanked for caring, and sometimes  doing what may seem to be a very small thing, such as sitting by Naomi’s bed and talking with her at night.  It meant so very much to her and the family.  Bless you all!

Services will be held from the Richard A. Sheetz Funeral Home, 2024 Marietta Ave., Lancaster on Friday, December 28 at 11:00 A.M.  A viewing will be held from 10:00 AM until the time of the service.  Interment in Rohrerstown Lutheran and Reformed Cemetery immediately following the service.

Although I only met with Naomi a few times, I know she was a tough woman with a strong will, she was blessed with wonderful children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and family. She was loved. May God rest her soul. My sympathy goes out to each and every one of you.
Love, Donna

You are all in my prayers. Even though I have never met her, I know through knowing all of you she was a special person. May her memories live on in your hearts and may she always be remembered by the legacies she left all of you.

My condolences to the Russell family. So sorry to hear about your loss. May it help you to know that Isaiah 33:24 shows and says: “No resident will say I am sick”, yes sickness takes our loved ones everyday, yet soon this will only be in the past for sickness will be gone forever, never to return. Please find hope and comfort in this fact.
