Naomi was born on August 25, 1933 in Turtle Lake, ND to John and Effie (Peterson) Brown. Her family moved to Bemidji, MN when she was six weeks old and returned to Coleharbor, ND when she was seven years old.

Naomi married Lawrence Aldinger on June 12, 1955 in Riverdale, ND. They made Bismarck their home for their entire 65 years of marriage and are Charter Members of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.

Naomi worked for a short time as a dental assistant. She loved baking, collecting dishes, and sending Hallmark cards to family and friends, but more than anything, she loved being a wife and mother.

Naomi was preceded in death by her parents, John and Effie (Peterson) Brown; son-in-law, Charles “Buddy” Elliott; sisters-in-law, Elsie (William) Mankin, Helen (Sam) Landenberger, Irene (Carl) Leib, and Evelyn (Dean) McMonagle; and brothers-in-law, Otto (Marcella) Aldinger, Fred (Freda) Aldinger, Alec (Elsie) Aldinger, and Jacob Aldinger.

Naomi was the most beautiful wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and friend. She will be forever missed.
