Obituary for Janet Newton (Jones)

POTSDAM – Janet (Jones) Newton, 79, of 14 Cherry Street, passed away Sunday morning, December 23, 2018 in Mexico, New York with her family at her side after battling brain cancer.

Janet was born August 27, 1939 in Potsdam, the daughter of the late William and Augusta (Gilbert) Jones. On February 21, 1959, she married her best friend and soulmate, David Newton. They were blessed with three children, Terry Lynn, Chris, and Debra.

Janet was a telephone operator for 20 years retiring from Clarkson University as a machine operator in the duplicating office and later worked part-time for T&R Liquors in Potsdam. She was a baker extraordinaire and an avid reader. She had great love for the ocean, was a sun worshipper and loved a plate of nachos alongside a well-made margarita.

She is survived by her husband, David; soulmate of 59 years, 10 months, and 2 days; her son and daughter-in-law, Chris and Denise Newton of Mexico, New York; her daughter, Debra Newton of Morristown, New Jersey; her siblings, Robert Jones, Gilberta White, Betsey Friedel, and Tracie LaPoint; and MANY others who were considered blessed to be called her friend.

In addition to her parents, Janet was predeceased by her daughter, Terry Lynn in 1975.

Friends may call on Sunday 12:30 – 2:00 PM at the Donaldson-Seymour Funeral Home, Potsdam, where a service celebrating her life will be held at 2:00 PM with Pastor Lee Sweeney, officiating.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions in her memory may be directed to a Hospice of your choice or the American Cancer Society.
