He especially loved comedies. Mike touched many lives while working at the book stores. Friends, co-workers, and customers say they will miss Mike's wonderful sense of humor, his laugh, and the way he could always make you smile no matter how bad a day you were having. They say they will miss the fun conversations about movies and cartoons, including the amazing amount of trivia and details he remembered, and that he was one of the nicest, kindest, most polite persons they ever had the pleasure of working with. Mike also loved to write, and especially enjoyed his journalism class at College High School. During his senior year, he wrote and produced a film starring his journalism classmates. It was a comedy, of course, and a mockumentary (a funny documentary). He also wrote many movie scripts in junior high and high school starring his family and friends, and filmed them using an old super 8 movie camera. He wrote two novels in college, but never pursued having them published. Mike was a kind and gentle soul who loved animals, and children, especially his many nieces and nephews. He loved repeating stories about anything cute or funny that the kids or family pets did and they loved him dearly. Mike was a peacemaker, and made this world a more loving and gentle place. His presence on this earth will be sorely missed. During Mike's long illness in the hospital, the staff, nurses and doctors said that Mike never complained, was always polite and kind no matter how much pain he was in or how much he was suffering. He was incredibly brave throughout his illness, and never gave up even when his body was giving up. Mike was preceded in death by his parents Jerry and Barbara Moore.

Newton, Mary Ellen (Bryant) - Bartlesville  
A celebration of the life of Mary Ellen Newton will be 2:00 p.m., Friday, May 22, 2015 at Rose Hill Baptist Church in Dewey, Oklahoma where she had been a member for the last ten years of her residency in Bartlesville. Mary passed away on Saturday, May 2, 2015. She was 79. Born in Atchison, Kansas on April 19, 1936 to Nelson Andrew and Stella Opal (Loveall) Bryant, Mary was reared and educated in Napolean, Missouri where she graduated from Napolean High School. She married and became the proud mother of her first child, daughter Cathleen. Later while living and working in Tulsa as a Teller at the First National Bank, she and Aubra Preston Newton met and were married. This union was blessed with Mary's only son, Lee Newton. They made their home first in Tulsa before moving to the Claremore area in 1972. The rural Sequoyah community was the family's home. Aubra passed away on October 5, 1984. A devoted wife Mary never left Aubra's side as he fought a courageous battle with cancer. Both Mary and Aubra shared a passion for giving to others and one way that was demonstrated was to open their heart and their home to foster children. After Mary was widowed she poured herself into every opportunity to make life better for others. She continued as a foster parent. She also worked for the Rogers County Community Action Organization. She assisted with both the organization and operations of the community's Battered Women's Shelter and their crisis line. She was also a volunteer for the Rogers County probation and parole program. She was the co-Founder for the Rogers County Drug Abuse Program and worked as that organization's manager for years. And when she had a spare moment she volunteered as an assistant for the local Meals on Wheels and an active member of the Pilot Club, a local service organization. In 2005 she moved to Bartlesville to be near her son and his family. She hit the ground running by becoming involved with her church and also as a volunteer for the Washington County Probation and Parole program. Through the years that Mary was a foster parent she cared for 42 children. Not only during that time did she teach her children selflessness but, she also taught each of those children what a loving mother's heart looked like. During those years she became a mom once again to her adopted daughter, Boni. Mary was straight, direct but caring. She was respected for her opinion and was unafraid to give it if she knew it would benefit others. She put everyone else before herself. Words that best describe Mary are tough but loving, selfless and Godly. Mary was a devoted wife and a nurturing mother and a no nonsense grandma. There was no spoiling going on in those relationships but there was an abundance of love. Other than people Mary loved cooking and was famous for her amazing enchilada recipe. She also loved entertaining and enjoyed having dinner parties and dances in her home. And she had a fondness all throughout the years for blue grass music. And in her younger years was involved in the organization of a blue grass festival. But though it was work it seems her greatest love in life was helping others. That gift will live on through the generations. This loving mother and grandmother is survived by her children Cathleen Olson and husband Larry of Eland, Wisconsin, Lee Newton and wife Lori of Bartlesville, and Boni Belle Newton of Sperry; grandchildren Kenneth Huguenard of Eugene, Oregon, Amanda DeVore and husband Michael, Lucretia Newton, Lindsay Newton all of Bartlesville and Izza Bella Newton of Sperry; two great grandsons Dawson and Austin DeVore of Bartlesville; great granddaughter Lucy Mary Ellen Robertson of Eugene, Oregon; and sisters Joann Miller of Marietta, Georgia and Lois Stoops of Dayton, Ohio. Mary was preceded in death by her husband and five brothers Capper, Nelson, Jack, Floyd and Bill. In lieu of flowers or other condolences please consider making a contribution in Mary Newton's name to the Rose Hill Community Baptist Church at 12950 N. 4000 Road, Dewey, OK 74029.
