Newf was a lady who loved life. Friends and family were the most important thing in her life. She took care of everyone who crossed her doorstep or needed a helping hand of any kind. She would give you the shirt off her back. She raised her family, and a few others, with love and respect for everything and everyone. She worked hard alongside Russell in the family business and also in the home for years. Whether it was clothes needed to be made or mended, meals needed to be cooked, roofs needed mending, transmissions needed to be stripped, she was there on the front line to put in her blood, sweat and tears to make sure her family had everything they wanted or needed. Newf you have left a void that no one in this world could ever fill. Our hearts pain today and forever. As our hearts begin to mend over the coming minutes, hours, days and years the good times and love you gave us all will be in our hearts today and forever.
