Mrs. Newberry was born February 22, 1947 in LaGrange to the late John Paschal Swanson and Katie Lee Taylor Swanson.
Prior to her retirement, she was an office manager for Scott’s Pest Control.
What gave her the greatest joy was having her family over for a hot meal. She loved to cook, and always made delicious candy. Her specialty was peanut butter fudge.
Times spent with her family were precious to her, especially fishing at her nephew’s lake. She also enjoyed growing flowers and spending time outdoors.
Survivors include her husband, Alvin Newberry of Franklin; daughter and son-in-law, Cynthia and Tommy Conn of Canton; two sisters, Joyce Knight (Gene) and Carolyn Williams both of Franklin; brother, Richard Swanson (Sue) of Lake Hamilton, FL; a number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and other relatives and friends.
