Naomi Cheatham, 97, native of Adair County, KY (1921-2019)
She was a member of the Columbia Christian Church for 69 years, and she enjoyed a visit there last fall for the congregation's 150th anniversary. She was preceded in death by her husband Willard Cheatham in 2011 and by her daughter, Betsy Stotts, in 2015.
Naomi Cheatham of Oxford, Ohio, formerly of Columbia, KY, passed away June 8, 2019. She was 97.
A private family service will be held with arrangements by Stotts-Phelps-McQueary Funeral Home.
Born June 28, 1921, Naomi lived most of her life in Adair County. She was the daughter of Robert and Cruse (Baker) English, and she was married to Willard Cheatham for 70 years. She was preceded in death by her husband in 2011 and by her daughter, Betsy Stotts, in 2015.
Naomi was a member of the Columbia Christian Church for 69 years, and she enjoyed a visit there last fall for the congregation's 150th anniversary.
She was a homemaker but also worked for many years in The Style Shop in Columbia. She loved helping customers choose new outfits and going on buying trips with the owners to select the next season's clothing and jewelry.
If you knew Naomi, you knew her blackberry jam cake, her oatmeal cookies and her butterscotch pie. She loved cooking, baking and trying new recipes - even into her 90s.
In her younger days, she enjoyed vegetable gardening and growing beautiful flowers. She also enjoyed traveling to many places around the country with her family.
She is survived by her daughter, Charlotte Krauss (Howard), grandson John Krauss (Casey), granddaughter Sally Weber (Tom), granddaughter Alison Curtsinger (Stewart)., grandson Adam Stotts, and six great-grandchildren: Jenna and Palmer Krauss, Tom and Colton Weber and Garrett and Mason Curtsinger, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Stotts-Phelps-McQueary Funeral Home, 210 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY, is in charge of arrangements.
