I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Naomi. I know Naomi from Munster high school and then from IU. And then back in Munster. I live in Colorado now for the past 28 years. I would see Naomi when I visited Munster. Although it has been quite some time, I have complete and found memories of Naomi. My deepest condolences to all the family. Celeste Helminski

To Naomi's family and friends, I am so sorry for your incredible loss. I met Naomi when we first worked together on the BA and then the Hilton Accounts. With her easy smile and her incredible energy and ethusiasm, she was a dynamo! Thinking of Naomi, always brought a smile to my face. May her memory be of a blessing.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Naomi, may her memory be a blessing, traveled all over the world with the Hilton Field Sales Team. I was fortunate enough to have been blessed by her sharp wit, creative mind and unending energy for 17 years. I am so thankful that she influenced my life.

I met Naomi in Munster (after flying in from Florida) about 6 years ago at my sisters’ birthday luncheon in Flossmoor. I also saw her on other happy occasions. She had a kind heart, was friendly, beautiful, and had the funniest speech. I’m certain everyone will miss her.

I was shocked and saddened to hear about Naomi's passing. We were in college both in Indiana and Hebrew U together. My condolences to her family- from what I could see on pictures she posted on Facebook, she took such nachas from all of you. May her memory be a blessing.

I am deeply saddened to hear of Naomi's passing. Adam was my closest friend throughout my teenage years, we were like brothers. Closer than brothers. Naomi could not have been more welcoming, warm and kind to me. She welcomed me to her family with beyond open arms. I loved spending time with the Cohens and it was because of the environment that Naomi had fostered. She was a very special person and I will be forever grateful for how she accepted me at this formative time in my life. Love you Naomi, Adam, Dan, Alex, Ernest, Ursula.

Naomi’s energy and passion for life was inspirational, and never ceased to amaze me over the years we worked together at USM / GO / Hilton – she seized every opportunity to travel and enjoy new experiences, with both hands – a lesson to us all on how to live life to the full. I only ever had the pleasure of meeting Barry and Alex but know how intensely proud she was of all her family. My deepest condolences to Barry, Alex and all her family and friends.

I met Naomi and Alex in Rome when my brother and Naomi were in business meetings. Her constant joy and energy was radiant and memorable. In the Midrash Rabbah there is a discussion on which is best, our day of birth or our day of death. The conclusion was our day of death for we look forward to our Day of Resurrection. May that day be soon. And May her memory always be for a blessing.
