BURLINGTON — Naomi M. Totten, 97, of Burlington, passed away Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at Kindred Health & Rehab Center.

Born in Delmar, Iowa on July 15, 1916, she was the daughter of George M. and Eva (nee Lakaff) Wray. She spent her early life in Delmar where she attended school.

On December 24, 1936, in Milwaukee, she was united in marriage to Clyde Mitchell Totten. Following marriage they made their home in Milwaukee before moving to Big Bend in 1948, where they raised their family. Clyde preceded her in death on January 15, 2000.

Naomi worked with the school lunch program at Big Bend School and in the cafeteria at New Berlin Hospital. Her true love in life was being a homemaker; being a loving wife and mother to her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Naomi lived life to the fullest and loved every minute she lived and had a positive attitude about all situations in life.

She attended 1st Church of the Nazarene in West Allis and Wesleyan Methodist Church in Waukesha. She enjoyed traveling, was a Lionette, was a member of a snowmobile club, and enjoyed golf.

She is survived by her daughters, Gloria (David) Stowell and Debra (Michael) Gauthier; grandchildren, Phillip Totten, Steven (Refina) Totten, Kristine Kimbriel, Lisa (Dwight) Perry, Terry (Brian) Erb, Todd Stowell; 18 great-grandchildren and 4 great-great-grandchildren. She is further survived by her sister, Hazel Johnston; and sisters-in-law, Joanne Totten and Marie Blevins along with many beloved nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; son, Ronald (Judith) Totten; grandson, Daniel Totten; four sisters and two brothers.

The family would like to thank the staff at Kindred Health Care and Allay Hospice for all their love, support and help during this time.

Private services will be held for Naomi at a later date.
