Naomi E. Jewett, 79, our beloved wife, mother and grandmother was called to heaven. We shed tears of sadness and joy as she passed away last Friday, March 31, 2017. Proverbs 31:10, "Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies." Born in Fort Wayne on April 7, 1937, Naomi was the daughter of W. Kenneth and Mary Plumley Leamon. Along with her nine brothers and sisters, Naomi learned the importance of family, of sticking together, of making do, and working hard at an early age. The work ethic came naturally and soon childhood play advanced into delivering newspapers with her older brother, waitressing at Murphy's, and on the endorsement of her teacher, bookkeeping at a small business. After graduating from Central High School, she became a secretary at Indiana and Michigan Electric Company. During this time, Naomi experienced a life-changing event when her brother brought home his friend, Harold Jewett, for Sunday dinner. A year and half later on May 2, 1959, the two were married, promising before God to live out their wedding vows. The bride was a breath of Spring. Life picked up speed as the children arrived, first a little boy, Dwight, and then a girl, Teresa. Naomi was a loving mother, helping in all their activities, volunteering extensively at Harrison Hill School. With both kids in school, Harold requested Naomi's help at his business Auto Collision Service. She willingly agreed, serving as CFO and co-owner in her under-the-radar, indispensable manner for over fifty years. As a committed Christian, Naomi worshipped at three congregations, first at Brookside Mennonite Church, next at First Missionary Church, and most recently at The Chapel. Along with Harold she shepherded the junior high youth group at Brookside for almost fifteen years. Working as a team, they planned monthly parties, Chicago baseball trips, and even a trip to the Billy Graham's crusade at McCormick Place. Naomi was a long-time member of the Fort Wayne Women's Business Association which honored her as their Woman of the Year. She also was a thirty year member of the Fort Wayne Christian Women's Association acting as its president. Those who knew her best would agree Naomi's gift was hospitality. She enjoyed hosting countless gatherings of friends in her lifetime. Everyone looked forward to the Jewett's summer parties at Lake Wawasee and the Christmas celebrations at their home in town. She is survived by her husband, Harold Jewett; and two children, Dwight (Beth) Jewett, and Teresa (Jerry) Norton. Naomi was blessed with an athletic grandson, Hunter and appropriately, three granddaughters, Reagan, Hannah, and Shelby who enjoyed shopping with her as much as she did with them. She was also survived by her siblings, Joan Patton, Joe Leamon, and Martha Powers. Naomi was preceded in death by her four brothers and two sisters. Naomi's life was complete and overflowing with Jesus' love. We know we will see her again. Services 11:00 am, Saturday, April 8, 2017 at The Chapel, 2505 W. Hamilton Rd with calling one hour prior. Calling also Friday, April 7, 2017 from 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm at The Chapel. Memorials may be made to Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana or The Chapel.
