Obituary for Ann Newton

July 18, 1933 - January 31, 2020
Owensboro, Kentucky | Age 86


Ann Newton, 86, of Owensboro, passed away peacefully January 31, 2020, surrounded by her family. She was born July 18, 1933 in Breckinridge County, KY to the late Charles and Mary Ellen Ball. Ann married the love of her life, Charles Newton, on August 2, 1952, at only 18 years old. They had met at age 13 at church and wrote letters all through high school, and after graduation decided to marry. She was an active member of Third Baptist Church, where she would volunteer as a receptionist. Ann was an avid Bridge player and enjoyed playing slot machines at casinos. More than anything, she loved her granddaughters. Her family will remember her for her bubbly and sweet nature, and for being a kind-hearted Christian woman who had never met a stranger.

She was preceded in death by her brother, Charles Ball and her brother-in-law, Stan Reidenbach.

Ann is survived by her husband of 67 years, Charles Newton; daughter, Traci Woolery and her husband, Chris; grandchildren, Kara Renee and Amanda Nicole Woolery; her sister, Emma Dean Reidenbach; her brother, Bobby Joe Ball and his wife, Ethel.
