Carrie Naomi (Lancet) Book

Feb. 23, 1918 ~ April 21, 2008

Funeral services for Carrie Naomi Book, 90-year-old Thomas resident, were held Saturday, April 26 in the First Methodist Church with Rev. Larry Harlan officiating. Burial followed in the Mound Valley Cemetery of Thomas under the direction of Lockstone Funeral Home of Thomas.

Naomi was born to Oliver and Della (Herron) Lancet on Feb. 23, 1918 in Thomas. She was a beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother, and she went to be with her Lord on April 21, 2008 in Tuttle.

Naomi lived the majority of her life in the Thomas area, attending Thomas Public Schools for 12 years, graduating as salutatorian of her class on May 15, 1936. She was a member of the EUB Church, later merging into the United Methodist Church. She was a loyal and faithful worker, and was so happy when new individuals or families joined the church. On Nov. 10, 1936. Naomi was united in marriage to Glen L. Book. To this union, two sons were born, Maynard E. and Darryl E. Book.

Naomi was employed in her early years in the school cafeteria. Later, she worked at the Thomas Drug where she became acquainted with many people locally and in the surrounding communities. Naomi always enjoyed talking and joking with the school kids, trying to keep them on the right path. She also attended Southwestern University, taking courses to increase her knowledge of the Bible.

She is survived by two sons, Maynard Book and his wife Janie of Tuttle and Darryl Book of Towanda, Kan.; six grandchildren, Scott Book and his wife Kim of Tuttle; Terry Book of Newalla; Dustin Book and his wife Jennifer of Tuttle; Shawn Book and his wife Trudy of Okmulgee; Darren Book and his wife Kristen of El Dorado, Kan.; Renee Tingley and her husband Dave of Andover, Kan.; 14 great grandchildren; one brother Harold Lancet; two sisters-in-law, Alma Crider of Hershey, Pa., and LaNelle Lancet of Seagraves, Texas; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Naomi was loved and admired by countless friends and relatives. She enjoyed china painting, oil and acrylic painting, quilting, gardening, her morning coffee by her goldfish pond and she loved church activities. She was a "Special Lady" and will be truly missed. Naomi was preceded in death by her parents, Oliver and Della Lancet; her husband Glen Book; three brothers, Jesse, Glen and O.V. Lancet; and one sister, Alma Hindman.
