Naomi Jean (Brown) Allison Elsbury, 95, a lifetime resident of North Sewickley Twp. was born on February 23, 1927 and passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 15, 2023 at her home.
Naomi was one of the eleven children born to the late Herbert W. and Stella (Wilds) Brown. She was a loving wife, mother, and grandma. It did not take long after you met her to know that her life centered on her faith. She always had a hug and smile for anyone in need of one. You never left her presence without her giving a hug. When Naomi had any free time, you could always find her working in her beautiful flower gardens. Naomi was a lifelong member of Concord United Methodist Church, where she taught Sunday School was involved in Bible Studies, taught many youths, and belonged to the Growing Wise Sunday School Class.
Naomi was preceded in death by her first husband, William Charles Allison (1960) and her second husband, George Frank Elsbury (2003); her siblings, Eva Cusick, Flora Shaw, Anna Zahn, William Brown, Ken “Bud” Brown and Jack Brown and her son-in-law, Terry Pettner
