Mrs. Huitt ("Mrs. White," when I knew her) was a critical person in my life. She taught me about libraries and librarianship; she allowed me to shelve books in the Claremont Elementary School library, showed me the rich resource that was the World Almanac, and therefore instilled a lifelong love of libraries and information science that led me to a career in librarianship myself. I will never forget her, her lovely spirit and her mentorship. My deepest sympathies to Michael and to all she touched.

I have fond memories of Mrs. White as our school librarian at Claremont Elementary School. I loved helping her put up bulletin boards and shelve books. She was an "encourager" and just a fine lady.

To the Tyson/Johnson family: there will be things that trigger tears and things that bring laughter, things that you never expected but they will gently remind you of all the wonderful details that made life with Aunt Nay such a precious gift. Pat thank you for allowing me to meet and fellowship with Aunt Nay and the Tyson/Johnson family. I will always remember and treasure the time spent with Aunt Nay. My sincere condolences to the family. Love Zell

On behalf of the Missionary Society of the Statesville District of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, we extend our deep sympathy to the entire family of Mrs. Naomi Huitt. We Missionaries, as well as the entire Statesville District membership extend our prayers to Mrs. Clara Carson, District Missionary Officer, and all family members in their loss. Our thoughts of Sis. Naomi will be held as precious memories.
Almost any time we were at Smyres Chapel AME Zion Church, Sis. Naomi would be present. Her ministry of presence soothed our souls. Just to know she was there 'on purpose' is what lended so much to the services.
At the McKenzie Camp Grounds, you could find Sis Naomi sitting on her porch, taking in and enjoying the sites of the gathered crowds and holding up the traditions of CampMeetings. If you stop at her door, she always had a welcome smile and much thoughtful conversation. She was full of history and didn't mind sharing. Yes, she will be missed in every way. She definitely was a class act who can not be replaced. Sis. Naomi, we will see you 'later.'
