She lived near New Albany KS during her very early grade-school years and moved to Fredonia, KS for the remainder of her school years graduating from Fredonia High School in 1938. After high school she began work as a telephone operator for the McCray Phone company, and while there she met her future husband Harry J Taylor Jr who was working in town at the Frisco Railroad.

Naomi loved sewing, cooking, art and music and she encouraged everyone around her to pursue those interests. She was President of the ladies Auxiliary of the VFW at Augusta, KS.
