Shortly thereafter, the happy couple moved to Ventnor where they created a home for their six children. Naomi remained in that home until her last day and was often referred to as the "Mayor of Wyoming Avenue "or more recently "Don Nomi", as she greeted the children walking to & from school and made friends with all the neighbors, old and new alike.
