Obituary of Naomi Ruth Mitchell

Please share a memory of Naomi to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Heaven welcomed Naomi Ruth Mitchell, 84, on March 22, 2018, leaving behind a legacy of her character, kindness, and abundant love. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 AM, Monday, March 26, 2018, in the Chapel at Griffin-Hillcrest Funeral Home with Reverend H. H. Davis officiating and Reverend Ronnie Carroll assisting. Interment will follow at Hillcrest Memorial Park, Ardmore, Okla.


Naomi was born in Baum, Oklahoma, on February 8, 1934, to John Griffin Clark and Myrtle Lee (Coursey) Clark. Naomi attended Dickson High School for eleven years and graduated from high school in Elmore City, Oklahoma, in 1953. Naomi was a very bright and loving sister. She never met a stranger and was loved by all who knew her. She grew up with a strong faith and close walk with her Lord and Savior. For many years, she taught Sunday School and was an avid student of the Bible. Christian music was always a part of Naomi's life. She sang with trios and quartets in her younger years. At two years of age, her Mother passed, and at age eleven, her Father passed also and she was reared by her siblings. She married the love of her life, Arthur Mitchell, on August 9, 1957, and devoted her life to him, sharing sixty-one years together. They enjoyed friends, family, and gardening. She worked for several plumbing companies and Hudson-Houston Lumber Company, all of Ardmore; and First State Bank of Dumas, Texas, for six years. Naomi volunteered for approximately 20,000 hours at Mercy Auxiliary as one of the  Pink Darlings.


She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, A.C. Clark and Julius Clark; and sisters, Lavada Dulaney and Winnie Hoover.


Naomi is survived by her husband, Arthur, and one son, Dale Mitchell of Dallas, Texas, who was the joy of her life. She is also survived by one sister, Geraldine Forson; one brother, Johnny Clark and wife Helen of Wichita Falls, Texas; numerous nieces, nephews, extended families, and many dear friends.  


Our heartfelt thanks to the services of the Cross Timbers Hospice of Ardmore, whose capable nurses and staff gave stellar support and direction in our time of need. Words cannot express our overwhelming gratitude to Janet Lindsey for her incredible loving care and devotion for Naomi during the past 18 months.


Serving as pallbearers will be Don Olive, Steve Dodson, Gary Campbell, Wendell Gooden, Carlton Freeman, and Joe Fine.


Visitation will be held on Sunday afternoon, March 25, 2018, from 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm, at Griffin~Hillcrest of Ardmore.
