Naomi S. (Varanelli) SundbergJune 23, 1930 ~ September 25, 2017 (age 87)
POWELL Funeral services will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 12:30 PM at Highway Tabernacle Church with Pastor Duane Bull officiating for Naomi S. Sundberg, 87, formerly of Hubbard, who died Monday morning September 25, 2017 at Abbington of Powell. She was born June 23, 1930 in Youngstown, a daughter of Nicholas and Mary Varanelli.
Naomi graduated from Eastern Bible Institute (now Valley Forge University) in Greenlane, PA and subsequently ministered in the Northern England District of the Assemblies of God, where she met her husband, Stig G. Sundberg and the two were married in 1958. Naomi and Stig were missionaries with the Assemblies of God in Venezuela and Paraguay from 1961 to 1982. Besides raising their three children, Naomi was very active in church planting, designing and deploying VBS curricula, and supporting activities of the Bible schools that Stig directed. After Stig’s death in 1982, Naomi took on associate minister roles at First Assembly of God in Hubbard, OH, Summit Assembly of God in Girard, OH, and Praise Assembly of God in Niles, OH. Naomi’s life has been a living testament to the care and provision of the Lord. As she gave her life to full-time ministry, God abundantly supplied all her needs in miraculous ways.
Her husband, Stig G. Sundberg, whom she married April 26, 1958, died June 2, 1982.
Naomi leaves two sons, Brent Sundberg of Bentonville, AR and Vaughn Sundberg of Lakeland, FL; a daughter, Lynette Streator of Dublin, OH; a brother, Benjamin Varanelli of Girard; two sisters, Anna Varanelli of Youngstown and Lydia Johnston of Pickerington, OH and 18 grandchildren.
