We say goodbye to a beautiful woman, Shannon Lee Newton nee Brock of Forest. Shannon rests gently now in the arms of her Saviour Jesus Christ. Best friend and wife of Rick Newton, and cherished Mommy of their little miracle daughter Jordan, Shannon is treasured with endless love.
Shannon will be missed by her parents, Cameron and Lynda Brock, brother Bo, and Grandma Dixon. Shannon is predeceased by her Grandpa Dixon. Remembered for her beautiful contagious smile by her church family, extended family, and many friends whom she truly cherished.
Shannon leaves her family blessed beyond measure; a helper, and a server, Shannon adored working with the public and especially appreciated working as a waitress where she could playfully banter with the patrons and take the time to evoke a smile. Rick and Shannon shared many precious moments before and during her illness. They loved just spending time together or visiting friends. A life of contentment, Shannon cherished her little family, spoiling Jordan and sharing moments, content with the love of her family. The love shown and felt by Shannon, Rick and Jordan by Ron & Linda Wright, and their church family could never be expressed fully. Their love in mentoring, bringing meals, quiet talks, and surrounding of the family with genuine care and compassion showed a love that has been faith changing.
A memorial service will take place at Forest Baptist Church, 19 Prince Street in Forest, Ontario. Details to follow.
Those wishing to send flowers, please consider making a donation in Shannon’s memory to The TLC Foundation, or the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation.
Arrangements are entrusted to Gilpin Funeral Chapel, 123 King Street East in Forest. Please leave a memory or condolence online at www.GilpinFuneralChapel.com
