A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Sue Newman of Cedar Springs passed away peacefully in the still of the night on Monday March 30, 2020. She was 75 years old. She leaves behind the two people who looked up to her most in life; her daughter Leanne Crawford (Steven) and her son Mike Newman. She will be missed by her grandchildren Evan Vaughan (Marie-Philip), Daniel Vaughan (Teneshia), Matthew Crawford (Jayde), Josh Crawford (Alison), Stevie Crawford (Mackenzie), by ten great-grandchildren and by many nieces and nephews. In 2001 she was predeceased by her husband of 34 years, Lorne Newman. She was also predeceased by her parents Dorothy & Lee Thomas and by her only brother George Thomas.
Sue drew strength in life through her faith in God. She was a long-time member of Cedar Springs United Church until its closing and then became a member of the Fourth Line United Church. It was that faith that allowed her to face the future unafraid these past few weeks after being diagnosed with cancer. She was very grateful for the kindness that was shown to both her and to her family by the doctors and nurses at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance.
Sue will be remembered as a kind and caring neighbour, a great friend and a person who left this world a better place. She mastered the art of making butter tarts and always had some on hand in the freezer…just in case.
Cremation will take place and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Blenheim Community Funeral Home entrusted with funeral arrangements. Friends wishing to remember Sue with a memorial donation are asked to consider the Westover Treatment Centre.
