Naomi was born on December 30, 1919 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Richard Stanley and Rose Anna Johns. She attended schools in Salt Lake City, and graduated from Granite High School. While attending the University of Utah, Naomi met Ivor Pickering. They were married on June 20, 1942 and were sealed in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Naomi graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Elementary Education. After a brief experience of teaching school, Ivor and Naomi began their family. They were happy to have born to them two sons and two daughters.

Naomi’s life revolved around raising their children, supporting Ivor’s work, her involvement with the LDS Church, and her love of music.

An extended residence in St. George, Utah preceded their move to the present home in Alpine, Utah. Naomi’s life was closely associated with the LDS Church. She faithfully served in numerous positions in which she influenced her family and many others for good. Ivor and Naomi served a full time mission at the Chicago, Illinois LDS Temple.
