My lovely sister in Christ and fellow teacher will always be special in my memory. We laughed together and also cried together, for we shared that bond in Christ that allowed us to share whatever was needed! Blessings on her beloved family!

My heart goes out to the family of Sis. Mary Newton. My constant prayer is that God showers you with peace and comfort during this time. Sis. Newton was a strong supporter of my parents ministry at Northside Church of Christ. She was a christian woman always willing to do the work of the Lord. She loved baking her sweet potato pies for me when I came home from college and she would share her lesson plans and ideas on how to better myself as a teacher. I am glad God gave her to us to witness how to be kind and caring no matter what. I am glad to have witnessed how she bragged on her children and her grandchildren, and always thanked God for the journey. I am glad I knew her. For the rest of my life, I will hear her contralto voice singing, “Just Like He Said He Would, Jesus Made a Way, for Me This Day” …amen Sis. Newton, amen!

I remember Ms Newton very well because we attended church together. I was a friend of the family as well as with her children. Ms Newton was always so sweet and kind and had a great smile. She always would share words of wisdom with you. Teaching was her way of life. She will be truly missed and she was highly appreciated. Love to the family and may she rest in peace. GOD bless the family. Love, Shirley Green and JoAvis Green

This news has hit me very hard today. Sis Newton, as I called her was my confidant, my friend, my walking example as a Christian woman, my grandmother's best friend and road partner (Sarah Davis), and dear sister in Christ for 60 years and especially in my marriage for 43 years. I LOVED HER AND I'LL ALWAYS LOVE HER. Karen, Ed and I are so sorry for your loss and we are praying for your family. Love, Ed and Doris Henderson [email protected]

Sis. Newton was the tallest tree in the forest! Consistent, statuesque, commanding excellence, and strong. Oh but her smile melted me. Her kind & soft (yet stern at times) words pierced me. I thought of her often. She was grandmothers (the love of my life) dear dear friend. They traveled together and loved the Lord fiercely. I referred to her as “my girl”. I’m sad, but I’m proud that she graced my life. Love you Sis. Newton. May my girl rest easy.

Sis. Newton will forever hold a special place in my heart. She was the most loving, caring and regal woman. I am forever indebted to her as she helped lay the foundation for my spiritual education. Sunday school, Wednesday night Bible class, Bible Bowls, VBS and whatever else she could enroll us in. I'll always love her! I'm a teacher today because of Sis. Newton. She truly left a beautiful legacy.

Karen Newton & Family, I am sorry to hear about the passing of your beloved Mother, Mary Newton. We were like family growing up on Globe Ave. in Lubbock Texas. I met Mrs. Newton when I was in 2nd grade. She was a very sweet lady and a excellent teacher. I know you and the family will miss her but remember you will see her again in her heavenly home. God be with you and the family at this time ❤️🙏❤️
