1931 ~ 2017
Sunday November 5th our sweet Mom won her battle with Alzheimer’s
disease. She died peacefully at home with family by her
Mom was born in Springville, Utah to William Arthur and
Ariadne MayTippetts on October 2, 1931. She was the youngest
of 13 children. She was the last surviving child and is
now reunited with her parents and siblings.
Mom and dad, William Newman, met while attending Springville
High School. They were sealed in the St. George Temple on
June 3, 1952. The family moved to Southern California in
1959 for Dad’s career. Eventually 6 children were
born into their loving home. In 1973we moved back home to
Mom’s life was given in joyful service no matter
where they lived or what her calling. Mom was a faithful
member of the LDS Church and served in many callings including
anything to do with singing or leading the music and several
times as Relief Society President. Mom was the heart of
our home filling it with love, music and the smell of homemade
bread. She was always serving and singing and many times,
much to the dismay of we children, the delicious desert
cooling on the counter wasn’t for her family but was
for someone else in need. Mom never met a person that she
didn’t love. She gathered in people just as she gathered
in her family. There was always enough room for anyone in
need. Mom opened her home to those in need on countless
occasions. Mom and Dad served 3 LDS missions to Chicago,
IL, Kirtland, OH and a humanitarian aid mission to Kazakhstan.
Each mission gave her a larger group of people to love.
Mom is survived by 5 children: Melody (Dave) Gonzales,
Paul (Kathy), Jeanine (Dave) Brown, Ken (Norma) and Bruce
(Paul Hempel), 27 grandchildren and 38 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her sweetheart, Bill, son,
Ronnie and a grandson, Bobbie. What a grand reunion is going
on beyond the veil.
