Naomi Fae Fields Brown age 91, born September 26, 1928, entered her heavenly home on the evening of October 8, 2019 in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Blairsville, with her family by her side. Naomi had an amazing love for her savior, Jesus Christ, and was a member of First Baptist Church of Atlanta, where she sang in the Sanctuary Choir.
