Nora Mae Newton ~ April 4, 1917 – June 21, 2013

Nora Mae Newton, 96, of Ogden, Utah, went to be with her Heavenly Father on June 21, 2013, at Mountain View Health Service in Ogden, Utah.

Nora was born April 4, 1917, at Rolla, Morton County, Kan., the daughter of Willie Artist and Truella (Lewis) Ward. She graduated from Rolla High School in 1935. After graduation she moved to Las Vegas, N.M., where she met and married Aubie Lee Newton on June 1, 1938. After Aubie received his master’s degree from Colorado State Teachers College, the couple moved to Eagles Nest, N.M., and then to Clarksdale, Ariz., where Aubie taught school.

In April 1944, after being drafted, Aubie spent 21 months in the U.S. Navy, 15 months of which were at Oakland, Calif., where Nora and family were able to be with him. After being discharged from the Navy, the couple moved their family to Springer, N.M., where Aubie taught school. In 1947, Aubie accepted a position of superintendent of schools at Deaver, which he held for eight years. In 1955, he became superintendent of schools at Evanston, and held that position for 20 years, retiring in 1975.

Nora was very active in her community and a 55-year member and officer of the Evanston chapter of Eastern Star. Nora was noted as an outstanding homemaker and seamstress. In 1959, she won the Wyoming State Ladies Literary Club’s sewing contest.

After Aubie’s retirement, the couple made their home at Hugoton, Kan., where Nora cared for her mother. In 1982, Nora and Aubie moved to Loveland, Colo., and after failing health Nora became a resident at Mountain View Nursing Home in Ogden, Utah.

Nora is survived by her son William “Bill” Newton of Ogden; her son-in-law, Kurt W. Webber of Bismarck, N.D.; six grandchildren, Doug Webber, Steve Webber, Wendy Webber Zamora, Robert Newton, Janna Newton Holmes and Bradley Newton; 15 great-grandchildren; one great-great grandchild, two brothers, Jim Ward, of Lavaca, Ark., and Lewis Ward, of Paris, Texas.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Aubie Newton; her daughters Ruth Ann and Mary Lois; two sisters; and her parents.

A funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday, June 27, at Allnutt Funeral Service in Loveland. Visitation will be held one hour prior to services. Interment will be at Loveland Burial Park.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Shriners Hospital or Galilee Baptist Church in care of Allnutt Funeral Service. Please view the online obituary and sign the family guest book at www.allnutt.com.
