Naomi Beatrice Paddison-Mather, daughter of Charles H. and Katie H. Paddison. She was born in Portland, OR and was sister to Frederick “Fred” Paddison, Charles Francis “Frank”, and Harold “Harry” Stevenson Paddison. Wife of Deming Pomeroy Mather, mother of Roy & Shirley Mather.

Unfortunately, we do not know a great deal about who Naomi was as a person as she passed some time ago. She did leave however her passion for genealogy behind in the form of hundreds of hand written notes, letters, and photographs categorizing 200 years of Paddison Family history. This began with her mother, Katie, who had an over 20 year pen pal friendship with her cousin Hilda, back in Devon, England. From what we know, Naomi carried on with this and carefully collected each piece of the family puzzle, hoping one day to reassemble it.

Because of Naomi’s work, her brother Fred’s grandson has been able to rediscover an entire branch of the family of whom she had been trying to piece together. Naomi is the champion of her family’s history and we are so grateful to her for that.
