Naomi V. Hanni

April 7, 1934 — January 9, 2020

Funeral services for Naomi V. Hanni will be held 2:00 PM, Monday, January 13, 2020 at the Vinita Avenue Church of Christ in Sulphur, with Brother Danny Stewart and Brother Thomas J. Thompson officiating. Interment will follow in the Green Hill Cemetery in Davis.

Naomi was born April 7, 1934 in Hobart, OK to the late Bennie Bree and Ella Morning (Perkins) VanVacter. She died Thursday, January 9, 2020 in Davis, at the age of 85 years 9 months and 2 days. Naomi and H. Howard Hanni were married on August 10, 1952 in Carter, OK. He preceded her in death on November 19, 2009.

Naomi grew up in Carter, OK. Following her 1952 graduation from Carter High School, she continued her education at Oklahoma A&M, where she majored in Home Economics. She, Howard & their young son Kyle moved to Davis in 1959 after Howard was hired by the Davis Public Schools as the Vocational Agricultural teacher. In 1962, Howard & Naomi, along with his brother Warren, purchased a large amount of land, east of Davis, thus the beginning of the Double H Ranch. Naomi was never a stranger when it came to working around the ranch. She worked right beside Howard on whatever project needed done. No matter how classy or dolled up she was, she fell right in and helped worked cattle, tended the fence lines and many other things associated with farming and ranching. Even after Howard’s death in 2009, she still maintained fencing and made sure the ranch was still looking it’s best.

For many years, Naomi owned and operated the Merle Norman Cosmetics Studio in Sulphur. After selling that business, she worked at the Davis Insurance Agency, prior to working as the church secretary for the East Main Church of Christ in Davis. Naomi was a very meticulous lady. Everything had to be as perfect as possible. This was a trait that she used throughout her life. Whether it was knitting, sewing, working around the ranch or doing her bookkeeping, everything had to be perfect. When it came to knitting & sewing, Naomi was very impressive with her talents. She continually made clothing items that she sent to less fortunate children in third world countries. Naomi was extremely supportive of the youth in Murray County. She always went out of her way to help see that young people were able to achieve goals and prosper in life.

Naomi was a devoted member of the Church of Christ; as well as member of many other associations and organizations including, the Oklahoma Cattleman’s Association, Honorary Member of the Davis FFA Chapter and a Charter Member of the Davis Aggie Club.

Survivors include one son, Kyle Hanni & fiancé Deb of Perry; two daughters, Tamara Thomasson & husband Richard of Davis and Tonya Jacobs & husband Jason of Sulphur; four grandchildren, Trevor Thomasson, Owen Thomasson, John Wes Jacobs and Harley Bree Jacobs; two great-grandchildren, Marley Rae and Easton Wayne Thomasson; one bonus grandson, Cade Turner; as well as two siblings, Bennie VanVacter, Jr of Elk City and Betty Jo Dyer of Yukon.

Serving as pallbearers will be Trevor Thomasson, Owen Thomasson, John Wes Jacobs, Steve Ratchford, Carl Ratchford, Bruce Reynolds, Buddy Vinyard, and Roger Hayes. Honorary bearers will be current and past member of the Davis FFA Chapter.
