Community saddened by loss of Mildred Stringer Newton

New Center news

Our community is saddened by the passing of one of our long-time residents, Mrs. Mildred Stringer Newton, on May 20 at the age of 93. She was a homemaker, loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was also a member of New Center Baptist Church where she and her husband of 75 years, James W. Newton, were very instrumental in the growth of the church for many years.  She was preceded in death by a son, James W. Newton Jr. and two brothers, Hubert L. Stringer and William Stringer.
She is survived by her husband; two daughters, Maxine Gibson and Faye Cobbs; four grandsons, Jerry Cobbs, Jim Gibson, Lee Gibson and Michael Gibson; and a granddaughter, Donna Cobbs Coleman.
Christian love and sympathy is extended to Patsy Haywood in the loss of her nephew, Dustin Slate and the family and friends of Ray Hunkapillar.
A special thank you goes out to all who participated in the WinGS Missions Project for the Children’s Hospital in Birmingham from Beth Miller.
Congratulations to Christopher Creel who is a member of the 2011 graduating class of Priceville High School. He is the son of Richard and Melissa Creel and the grandson of Jerry and Patsy Creel.
