On November 9, 2007, she married Russell Vos and made a wonderful life with him. Nomi had various jobs throughout the years but the work and role that was most important to her, above all else, was “stay at home, homeschool mom”.
Nomi had a very creative spirit. She had eclectic, evolving interests and enjoyed learning new things. Her favorite artistic passion was fabric art including quilting and long arming. One of her art quilts is currently part of a traveling exhibition through the United States. Nomi also enjoyed piano and flute and composing her own music. She was an avid reader with a vast collection of books. Her favorite author was Jane Austen but she had many that she loved. Her artistic outlets also included sketching, creating digital art, photography, knitting, cooking, and gardening.
