Naomi Jeanne Hardy

July 3, 1945 – January 16, 2012

Naomi ‘Nao’ Hardy passed away on January 16, 2012 after a short battle with lung cancer. Nao is survived by her husband of 45 years, Jerry, her children Natalie and Jeffrey, and her grandchildren Benjamin and Elizabeth. Naomi was an accomplished writer. She published a mystery novel, wrote humorous editorials for several news-papers and had her poetry recognized in contests and magazines. In 1999 she founded The Redmond Historical Society, and for more than a decade she has worked tirelessly to preserve, document and share the history of Redmond. Since its inception, the organization has grown to become one of the largest and most active civic organizations in the city. Nao wrote the book Redmond Reflections: From Settlers to Software. Nao will also be remembered for her wit, smarts, and collections. She collected rocks, bears, tins, green glass, hats and much more. She was an old soul who died too young. Love you Mom – Natalie
