Mrs. Roehl was born March 27, 1911, in Chili, a daughter of Adolph and Bertha (Schilling) Foemmel. She attended Cozy Corner School.

The couple operated various farms in the Chili area until 1956, when they moved into Marshfield. In addition, Mrs. Roehl was employed at Saint Joseph's Hospital until retiring in 1973. 

Naomi cherished the time she could spend with her grandchildren, often baby-sitting for them when they were young. 

She also enjoyed flower and vegetable gardening, family get-togethers and dining out, and activities with her UMW friends. 

Mrs. Roehl was a lifelong member of Zion United Methodist Church and member of the United Methodist Women. 

She is lovingly survived by her children, Vivian (Herman) Zemke of Surprise, Ariz., Arvella (Gerald) Bores of Stratford, Everett (Dolores) Roehl of Marshfield, Kenneth Roehl of Marshfield, Delores (Charles) Schueller of Marshfield, Harlyn Roehl of Middleville, Mich., and Dinah (Jack) Holland of Marshfield; 22 grandchildren, 44 great-grandchildren and 14 great-great-grandchildren. 

Her sisters, Lydia Zimmerman of Marshfield and Esther King of Coloma, further survive Naomi. 

Besides her parents and husband, Glen, brothers, Paul, Samuel and Silas Foemmel, preceded Naomi in death.
