Obituary: Lavonne Elizabeth Newbrough Newton
Lavonne Elizabeth Newbrough Newton
Lavonne Elizabeth Newbrough Newton

Lavonne Elizabeth Newbrough Newton, was born Sept. 23, 1922, in Salem, S.D. She married Don Newbrough on Sept. 1, 1941, in Esterville, Iowa. In 1946, they moved to Ridgeview, S.D., where they ran the Ridgeview Store and Post Office. Don was killed in a car accident in 1953, and Lavonne ran the store alone until 1957 when she moved to San Diego.

She lived in San Diego and Anaheim, Calif., for 20 years or so, then found a nice home on Country Club Drive in Kingman in 1987. She and her late husband Charles D. Newton built a few homes and duplexes and settled down to retire. Charles passed away in 1999. Lavonne had a major stroke in 2007 which left her paralyzed on the right side and unable to speak. She spent her last years living with her daughter Vickie and son Jim.

Lavonne loved country music and enjoyed going to Laughlin for a good meal and to play a little. Even in her wheelchair she still got around, until these past eight months when another stroke confined her to bed. She was a fighter until the end. She had just had her 90th birthday four days before she passed.

Hospice was a great help for the family and many thanks goes out to all who helped with our mother these past few months.

At home, she left us on Sept. 27, 2012.

One son, Donnie, died in 1977. Lavonne is survived by one sister, Beverly; daughters Linda and Vicki; sons Richard, Jim, Doug and Charles; six stepchildren; eight grandchildren - Darrin, Dayton, Donel and Dawn Newbrough, Michael and Jared Picore, Brandon Baptista and Jesse Newbrough. She also had 14 great-grandkids and two great-great-grandkids.

Her body was donated to the Phoenix Biological Research Center. A memorial will be held at a later date.

Our thoughts are with her today and always.
