Naomi graduated from the Port Matilda High School in 1945, and married the love of her life, William J. McCamley, Sr. on October 30, 1946.

“Noni” was a Bookkeeper at The Autoport Motel & Restaurant for 8 years, then began work at the Sandwich Shop in the basement of Old Main on Penn State’s Main Campus. She retired in 1988, as the Administrative Assistant to the Department Head of Accounting and MIS at Penn State. She was an avid fan of all things Penn State, from football to the Blue Band to concerts and shows.
Her time and passion were devoted to family, faith and friends. She was a member of Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church for over 60 years and taught Catechism there for 13 of years.

She was also actively involved in CAR and CAC organizations..
