Naomi Lorene Densel

Naomi Lorene (Armstrong) Densel, daughter of the late Harlen Ernest and Laura Viretta (Gunter) Armstrong, was born on February 7, 1933 in Bado, Missouri, and went home to be with her Savior on March 18, 2015. She was 82 years, one month, and 11 days of age.

Naomi loved growing up on her family’s farm. Some of her greatest pleasures in life were her mother’s chicken potpie, milking cows with her parents, attending Lone Star School and being with her siblings. Naomi loved the Bado area with its beautiful creeks and streams.

She greatly enjoyed picnics with her family down by Hamilton Creek. There they would play baseball on Sundays after church. Naomi attended the Union Church as a young girl. This is where her love for the Lord began. Naomi’s first true passion in life was her relationship with God.

Naomi met her loving husband, Robert C. Densel, in 1949 and there a lifelong friendship began instantly. They were united in marriage on November 4, 1950 in Mountain Home, Arkansas. Three children were born to this union: Robert, Gina, and James. Naomi and Bob were the best of friends, who loved each other dearly.

Naomi enjoyed teaching Sunday school at Mountain Grove Full Gospel Church for many years. She loved planting flowers, bird watching, spending time with her family, and reading her Bible.

Naomi will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her, especially her best friend and husband of nearly 65 years, Bob.

Besides her parents, Naomi was preceded in death by one grandchild, Jesse Jo Mullins.

She is survived by her loving husband, Bob Densel, of the home; two sons, Robert H. Densel of Norwood, Missouri, and James T. Densel of Palmer, Alaska; one daughter, Gina Densel of Springfield, Missouri; two brothers, Lonnie Armstrong and wife Darlene of New Plymouth, Idaho, and Gil Armstrong and wife Sue of Payette, Idaho; two sisters, Viretta McCoy and husband Don of Rogersville, Missouri, and Teresa Lou Laughridge and husband Mike of Meridian, Idaho; five grandchildren, Michele Curran and husband Donnie, Desirae Fullington and her fiancé, Justin Bradshaw, Ashley Watson and husband Grant, Kimberly Mullins, and Keaton Carpenter; nine great-grandchildren, Tyler, Kyle, Zachary, Caleb, Taylor, Alyssa, Adilee, Elijah, and Ava; and a host of other family and friends who will greatly miss her.
