NEWTON, Noelin

Posted: January 17th, 2019


MR. NOELIN R. NEWTON, beloved husband of the late Ruth Mary Newton, passed away peacefully at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Monday, January 14, 2019 at the age of 93.

Noelin is survived by four sons: Don (Linda) Newton and their children, Tara (Dwayne) McLaren and Robyn (Kevin) Todd; Dean (Edie) Newton and their children Jodi Newton, Niki (Darin) Neufeld, Carol Newton, Chance Newton and Ladean Newton; Phil Newton; and Murray (Tracy) Newton and their children Janay (Dean) Harrang and Daniel (Brittany) Newton. He is also survived by eight cherished great-grandchildren.

Noelin was involved in agriculture from his childhood years at Skiff, AB until 1977 when Mom and Dad retired from farming and moved to Lethbridge. Noelin continued his career working at Ellison Milling Company and later as a grain buyer for the agricultural company, Parrish & Heimbecker Ltd. Noelin finished his working life at Edwards Rod Weeder as a purchasing agent. He then retired in 1989 at the age of 63.

His favourite pastimes were playing with his dogs and his horses, and long walks with Mom in Indian Battle Park. Our dad was a fun-loving, kindhearted, spiritual and humble man who will be missed by his sons and their extended families. Dad will be remembered not only for his strong work ethic, but also his love of jokes and storytelling, picnics, camping, horses and gravel roads.

There likely is not a gravel road in southern Alberta that Dad has not traveled on for the sole purpose of enjoying the dusty trip and finding out where the road ended. The road of life for our father has now come to an end but we find peace in knowing he is now and forever in the loving arms of God.

A Memorial Service will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, AB on Monday, January 21, 2019 at 1:30 P.M. with Reverend Pauline Bell officiating. Anyone who would like to attend is welcome to do so.

For those who wish, memorial donations may be made to the Southern Alberta Bible Camp, Box 99, Lomond, AB or online at
