I am not related to this family but I did find an obituary for Naomi Richwine--I believe the reason you have not found her death record is that she died in Indianapolis:

from The Republican (Danville, Indiana)--issue of Thursday, June 28, 1962--page 6, column 4:

Mrs. Naomi Moore, a life-long resident of Pittsboro, died, Wednesday of alst week, in the Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis, at the age of 70 years.

She was a member of the Bethesda Baptist Church of Brownsburg.

Services were conducted, Saturday, in the Jones & Matthews Mortuary in Brownsburg with burial in Mount Tabor Cemetery, there.

Survivors include two daughters, Mrs. Ruth Joseph of Lizton, and Mrs. Ila Mae Hardesty, of Indianapolis; a son, Floyd Moore, of Brownsburg; a brother, Forrest Richwine, of Brownsburg; seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

I also found some other information that may help you, including the fact that Richard & Laura's daughter Emma apparently went by her middle name, Ethel:
