Naomi Saye Wolfe of Alpharetta, Ga. passed away on Oct. 13 at the age of 89. Naomi was born in Athens, Ga., but lived most of her life in California, New England and eventually settled back in Alpharetta in 1981.
Naomi is survived by her beloved husband, of 71 years, Martin W. Wolfe; their three children: Rhonda Wolfe Nachamkin (Jeffrey), L. David Wolfe (Patterson) and Mark R. Wolfe (Rosalie); seven grandchildren: Eli W. Nachamkin (Kim) Saree Nachamkin Naggiar; Jeremy L. Wolfe, Eeid M. Wolfe (Jamie), Clark P. Wolfe, Garity M. Wolfe and Barrett H. Wolfe; and five great-grandchildren.
Naomi owned her own business with her late sister-in-law, Helma Wolfe Tauber, however, her true passions were her family and her artwork. She was an accomplished artist, graduating from Silvermine School of Art in Stamford, Conn. and studying under the tutelage of Rayma Spaulding — Painting Stamford, Conn. and Ivan Biro — sculpture New York, N. Y. Naomi was a founding member of the Stamford Art Association; her work was recognized in many juried art shows in Connecticut and Georgia while her paintings hung in the Governor of Connecticut’s office. Naomi was inducted as a member of the National League of American Pen Women, Inc. (Atlanta Pen Women), a sisterhood of talented women who dedicated to their craft and to sharing their passion for the arts.
Her other passion was her husband Marty, from whom she was inseparable, be it traveling the world or grocery shopping. Naomi truly believed, as did those who knew her, that her marriage was a match made in heaven. Naomi doted on her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, never missing a religious ceremony, school play, graduation, grandparents’ day or sporting event.
