Funeral services for Naomi Fleming-Anderson, 101, of Purcell were held Wednesday, January 12, 2022 at the Wilson-Little Funeral Home Chapel. Interment was at Hillside Cemetery in Purcell under the direction of the Wilson-Little Funeral Home in Purcell.
Mrs. Fleming-Anderson passed away on January 8, 2022 in Purcell.
Mary Naomi Dunn was born the fourth of five children on July 14, 1920 in Story, Oklahoma, to Thomas Oly Dunn and Mary Elizabeth Dunn (Carter).
Naomi grew up in the Story community and Maysville, Okla. Her father was in the grocery business, which meant they moved around quite a bit even if it was just across the street or down the block from the grocery store he worked at.
On August 26, 1937 Naomi married the love of her life Otis Anderson in Maysville. They made their home in Purcell and together raised their two daughters, Laverne and Jeanette. Naomi loved tending to her yard, traveling, taking trips to the lake, and fishing. She was a spitfire who refused to accept a rocking chair. Well into her 80s she maintained her yard on a riding mower and wouldn’t hesitate to climb on the roof to fasten a loose shingle.
Later in life, she married Clarence Fleming on February 20, 1988 and the two shared ten wonderful years together before his passing.
Naomi was a proud member of Sunray Baptist Church, the Purcell Mothers’ Club and the Order of The Eastern Star. She had a zest for life that will be dearly missed and fondly remembered.
Naomi was preceded in death by her parents, T.O. and Mary Dunn; her husbands, Otis Anderson and Clarence Fleming; her siblings, Wilson Dunn, Marvin Dunn, Opal Herron and Buna Lee and her stepgrandson, Buddy Trotter.
She is survived by her daughters, Laverne Trotter and Jeanette Anderson; six grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; six great-great-grandchildren and one great-great-great grandson.
