Voncile Andrews Newton

ORANGE — The family of Voncile Newton regretfully announces her death.  She was born in Enterprise, Alabama on June 29, 1923 and died at the age of 89 on April 18, 2013 in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Funeral services will be held at Dorman Funeral Home in Orange, Texas at 10:00 a.m. Monday, April 22, 2013, with burial following at Liberty Hill Baptist Church Cemetery in San Augustine, Texas at 3:00 p.m.  Visitation will be held Sunday evening, April 21, 2013, at Dorman Funeral Home in Orange from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

She will be remembered for her love of craftwork, including sewing, painting and any craft project currently in vogue.  She was willing to give most a try and she usually excelled.  One of her latest passions was jewelry making (which meant buying new attire for every necklace and bracelet she made).

Her church family, who she dearly loved, was at MacArthur Heights Baptist Church in Orange, Texas. She kept in touch with them after moving to Louisiana. If you wish, in lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial donations be made to MacArthur Heights Baptist Church in Orange, Texas.

Preceding her in death were her husband of 66 years Robert Edward Newton, her parents Harvey and Georgia Andrews, and her brother James Andrews.

Mrs. Newton is survived by two daughters, Shirley Noreuil and husband, Kirk of Sulphur, LA, Sandra Derby and husband, John of Lake Charles, LA; two grandchildren, Eric R. Robideaux of  Houston, TX, Tiffany A. Noreuil of Sulphur, LA.  She is also survived by two great-granddaughters, Arianna and Erika Robideaux of Vinton, LA.  Surviving siblings are sisters, Rachael Mitchell and husband, Howard; Syble Newton and husband, Alvin, both of San Augustine, TX, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
