Naomi P. Bohley

February 22, 1922 ~ September 1, 2020 (age 98)


Naomi P Bohley went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, Sept 1, 2020. She was born February 22, 1922 at Lillie-Duke Hospital and lived all of her 98 ½ years in Pelly and Baytown.  Pauline was preceded in death by her parents Jay B and Bertie Fielder Smith, her step-father C.B. Gardner, her sister Gladys Pittman, Brother Gordon Smith, brother and beloved sister-in-law J.B and Margie Smith, and infant sisters Joicie Belle and Merle.

Pauline married I.D. Huggins in 1937.  She worked at Humble Butyl Rubber plant while her husband was in Germany during WWII.  When he returned to Baytown, Pauline supported his efforts as Chief of Baytown Emergency Corps by joining the Ladies Auxiliary and teaching many Red Cross First Aid classes.  After I.D.’s death in 1958, Pauline worked at San Jacinto Hospital for 4 years.  She received her Civil Service Commission in 1964, and began working at the newly opened NASA Complex in Clear Lake for 20+ years. During that time, Pauline attended night classes at Lee College and graduated with honors with an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science in 1969.

She remarried in 1982 and is also preceded in death by James W. Bohley.

Pauline is survived by her son, Isaac “Danny” Huggins and wife, Annette of Baytown; grandson, Donny Huggins of Jersey Village; granddaughter Shawna and husband Trace Jones of Spring; great-grandson Timothy Jones of Houston.  Also surviving are her aunt Mary Lou Fielder Bloxham of San Antonio; nephew Jay Smith and his wife Cathy of Brookeland; nephew Jayme Smith and his wife Sabrina of Baytown; numerous Fielder cousins along with “bonus” nieces and nephews Misty, Barry and Kane Godwin and Brandy, Brayden and Peyton Joiner.

The family would like to thank Cynthia Moreno and Vera Francois for their care of Pauline during her residence at Alexander Hall.  We are especially grateful to Sandy, Jennifer, Cassandra and all the nurses and staff of St. James House for their kind and compassionate care during the past 20 months.

Due to current conditions, the family will gather for a private burial at Sterling-White Cemetery, Highlands TX.
