Naomi Beatrice Jackson was born on October 27, 1945, to Charles Jackson and Isabelle Stovall Jackson in Riverhead, Long Island, New York. Naomi was reared in the Powhatan community and at an early age she accepted Christ as her personal savior and joined Hollywood Baptist Church. As a member of the church participated in the women's ministry, serving for a time as president. She was an active member of the White Rose Missionary ministry and a member of the Hospitality Committee. Naomi attended Powhatan County Public Schools and studied nursing and childcare at John Tyler Community College. She was a dedicated employee and worked for the Powhatan County Public School System for forty-five years. She will be remembered by the many young lives she touched as the Pocahontas Elementary School nurse, especially when it was time to shed a baby tooth. Many a child left her office with a little container in the shape of a tooth. She loved the children who visited her clinic. Naomi enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She was an excellent cook and was often called upon to make potato salad. She loved trying out new recipes and adding her own special touch. Her favorite pastimes were shopping and jewelry. She was a warm, loving, and caring individual and outreached to those in need in the community. Naomi Beatrice Jackson Perkins departed this life on September 11, 2022.
