Naomi Horstman Schebler, Batesville, passed away Monday, June 16, 2014, at Margaret Mary Health. She lost her battle with cancer at the young age of 69.
On Oct. 28, 1961, she married Jamie Horstman, and he died April 24, 2008. Then on May 31, 2013, Naomi married Cyril P. Schebler in Batesville.
Naomi worked in the Batesville High School cafeteria and later at the Hampton Inn as the head of its housekeeping. The Batesville United Methodist Church member also served as the custodian for many years. She was also a member of the Aerie 927 Eagles Auxiliary, Greensburg.
Naomi was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. She loved her friends and family more than anything in the world. Tatting, sewing and crocheting were some of her favorite hobbies. She loved making crocheted blankets and sewing projects for her family to decorate their houses. You could always find her with a Diet Coke (from McDonald's, of course) and Reese's Cups. And if they weren't with her, they were surely in her fridge.
One of Naomi's newest hobbies was facebooking and playing Candy Crush on her new iPad ..... She made it to level 50! Wanting to stay connected with everyone, she was always taking pictures and e-mailing friends. On the weekends, Naomi was usually out at the Eagles dancing to "Rocky Top," eating out with friends or visiting her new great-grandchildren, Ellie and Dustin. She enjoyed taking various Croswell bus tours with Cyril and friends to new places. Naomi was a wonderful, beautiful woman who lived life to the fullest. She will be remembered as someone who loved to have fun, make jokes and spoil her family. Every time you drive by 418 Park Ave., always remember to picture the sweet lady sitting on the porch yelling, "Hey, guys!"
