Dec. 5, 1932-Aug. 11, 2013
Robbie Inez Newman, age 80 years young, passed away surrounded by her loving family, on August 11, 2013, at her home. Robbie was born on December 5, 1932, the daughter of Clarence Pierce and Robbie Ruth Bullock, in Dothan Alabama. She married Joe Newman on September 16, 1953, in Alabama. Together they raised three children. She was employed as a school bus driver for Coleman Schools for 30 years. Her life ambition was to be a wife and mother which she most certainly was the most excellent. She unselfishly went without so that her family could have what they needed and all that they wanted. She was a Christian in every sense and had an exceptional work ethic. She loved cooking, cleaning, and baking. Robbie loved her dogs, Poncho, Harley, and Sprite, who preceded her in death.
Loving memories of Robbie will be cherished by her son, Charles (Sharon) Newman of TN; two daughters, Donna Jo (Paul) Newman- Bentley of Farwell, Linda (Dr. James Watt) Newman-Watt of Farwell; five grandchildren; one great grandchild; two brothers, Jack Pierce and Ray Pierce, both of AL.
Robbie's life will be remembered and celebrated on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 2 p.m., at the Clare Church of the Nazarene. Please share your memories and condolences online at
