Mrs. Newton, was a kind and loving person. She always looked out for me at church, when I was a kid; and even when I became an adult. She taught me several things and for that, I'm very appreciative. Mrs. Newton, played the piano and song, like no other! I loved to hear her sing and watch her play; she had a raw and blessed talent! I love her always and she will be missed dearly. However, God calls all his children home. My condolences and blessings, to the love of her life and the family. Michele Thompson

Ms Newton, has a special place in my life. My could she play that piano; and did so with a smile. She called me girl. Where is my girl? She served on the Governing Board at Community Health Centers of South Central Texas for 15 years. My condolences to the family.
She is Loved and will be deeply missed.
