Osage City businesswoman Naomi Brown has been named as the parade marshal for the 2023 Osage County Fair parade, which will start at 6:30 p.m. Friday, July 21, at the west end of Market Street in Osage City.

Twenty-nine years ago, Naomi and her late husband John Brown purchased Marilynn’s Place Restaurant and made Osage City their home. They were accompanied by two of Naomi’s son’s, Shawn and Shane Valentine, who continue to help manage the successful family business to this day. Her other two children, Dean Valentine and Dawn Hope, both live in Colorado. She is adored by seven grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

Naomi has always been a successful businesswoman. She is no stranger to hard work and continues to show her love of the community through thoughtful support and delicious food. She has baked her way into the hearts of several generations of people in Osage County, with her cookies, cakes, and sweets to celebrate any occasion. Naomi is famous for her perfect homemade cream pies, which people travel from towns away to enjoy.

Naomi’s dedication and devotion to bringing smiles to our community has blessed us for nearly thirty years so far. She’s the community’s very own grandma, her hard work offers us a place to gather as friends and family in the comfortable atmosphere at Marilynn’s.

Naomi will marshal this year’s Osage County Fair Parade, and will ride in the parade as an honoree. The parade route runs east down Market Street to downtown Osage City. Parade spectators can watch the parade from just about anywhere along the route.
