Naomi Toope April 30, 1945 - August 1, 2022

TOOPE, Naomi (nee Vokey)

April 22, 1945 – August 1, 2022

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we announce the passing of Naomi Toope at Dr. G.B. Cross Memorial Hospital, Clarenville. Naomi Toope of Shoal Harbour, aged 77 years.  Predeceased by her parents Chesley and Effie Vokey, and by her brother Ches and son in law Brad Maloney. Left with fond and loving memories are her husband of 58 years, Warrick.  Children Debbie, Cindy (Gus) Scott (Jackie) and Keith.  Her brother Abner.  Brother-in-law Gilbert (Madeline), Sisters-in-law Brenda (John) Van Tent; Linda (Warren) Lambert; Shirley Toope; Marie Toope; and Bertha Vokey.  Her favorite uncle, Ches Welcher, special niece, Holly and “special sister” Laura Clarke, and lifelong friend Mildred Webster.  Her grandchildren Nick, Sara, Devin, Alexa and Jarod; great grandchildren Ethan, Molly, Kali and Brooks; and many nieces and nephews.

Naomi was a fun loving, caring person.  A talented seamstress and an avid quilter.  She enjoyed every minute in her sewing room.  She loved her time at the cabin, and a good “boil-up”.  She was a mother/caregiver/friend to her youngest son, Keith, for 50 years and he has been her focus and strength to fight for more days than we thought possible.

Cremation has taken place and a private family service will take place at a later date. Many thanks to family and friends for their love and support.

A kind, friendly, gentle soul and a fighter to the end.  You will forever be in our hearts.

In her memory donations may be made to the Lung Association.     www.lung.ca

Cremation has taken place and a private family service will take place at a later date. Many thanks to family and friends for their love and support.
