Before they were married, Naomi confessed to Jim that she was told she would not be able to bare any children. Jim told her that he loved her and if God wanted them to have children, they would, and if not, that would be just fine. God blessed them with children. They had their first child, Gary, in May of 1950. Their second child, a daughter, Ellen, was born in in May 1952, and Robin was born to them in 1954.

They moved from Mo. to Calif., in 1949. Over the years, they have lived in Petamula, Richmond, and Pleasant Hill, Calif., and moved to Medford, Ore., in 1997.
