NEWELL, MARY JEAN - Liberty  
Mary Jean Newell (Herber) died July 23, 2015, at home surrounded by her family. Mary was the middle child born to Leo and Augusta Herber on May 4, 1941, in Springfield Gardens, New York. Leo and Augusta emigrated from Germany in the 1920's and with hard work and love raised their family of seven. Her beloved parents and four brothers, Sonny, Leo, Robert and Thommy, along with her in- laws, Lionel and Muriel and daughter-in-law, Amy, have welcomed her to heaven, and together they rest in the arms of Jesus. Mary and Jim met and were married in the town they were raised in, Laurelton, New York, NY. Jim's job took their family across the country. The family lived in seven different states, finally making a home for the last 28 years in Kansas City, MO. She loved her family, nothing made her happier than to have them all together. She especially loved reunions when family and friends from across the country gathered to celebrate any occasion. Mary never lost the New York dialect and over the years had many friends and relatives who laughed with her at the accent, and loved the lady who used it. Mary is survived by her husband and number one fan of 52 years, Jim Sr., and the lights of her life: daughter, Kathleen (Dennis) Ott, sons, Jim Jr., Joe (Ana), Jon and grandchildren, Kelsey (Corey), Brennen, Tristan, Connor, Ryan, Dylan, Olivia and Kyra. She is also survived by her older sister, Margaret Fickeissen, her younger sister and best friend, Florence (Butch) Siciliano, and many other extended family members.
