Obituary of Naomi Tucci

On Saturday, October 21, 2023, our beautiful mom passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of her family. She is now reunited with her husband, Joseph Anthony (her “Joey”), her parents, John Adams and Margaret Atkinson and her sister Jacolyn Rudd. Naomi’s family was her world. She will be missed by her daughters Evelyn Harrison (Ross), Julie Aceti and Perri Nantais (Tim). Naomi cherished her grandchildren Lee-Ann Jarrett (Ryan), Kevin Harrison (Katherine), Britney Whalen (Randy), Dustin Aceti, Therin Aceti, Tiann Nantais (Kordell) and Halli Nantais Orr (Jordan). She was blessed with great-grandchildren Ashleigh Fournier (Spencer), Zachary Jarrett, Ellen Harrison, Zoey and Rhys Whalen who lovingly called her Gigi. Daughter-in-law of the late Pierina (Pearl) and Giuseppe Tucci. She will be fondly remembered by her eldest sister Audrey Aros of Oregon, sister-in-law Donna Donofrio (late Hank) and brother-in-law Norman Tucci (late Barbara). Predeceased by her extended family Primo Tucci, Laura Erlandson (Curt), Guido Tucci (Olga) and Carmen Tucci. She will be fondly remembered by her many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.


Naomi was a collector of records, movies and poems. She poured her heart into making scrapbooks for every member of her family after Joey died. It gave her great pleasure creating these beautiful keepsakes.
