Shirley Newman

Obituary Condolences

Shirley Newman 51, of McKinleyville, CA joined her husband John Newman when she passed away on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 while surrounded by her loved ones and close friends. Shirley was born and raised in Humboldt County and spent her whole life here. Most people know her from pumping their gas and propane at Bigfoot Gas Station where she worked for over fifteen years. She always had a smile on her face, a sucker for your kid and a biscuit for your dog. Shirley loved bowling and was on a couple of different leagues at E&O Bowl which she looked forward to every week. She loved her dogs and working in her garden whenever she got the chance. Anytime she could be outside, that's where she'd be. She was a people person and always put everyone, especially her children, before herself. Shirley is survived by her daughters Caitlyn Newman of McKinleyville, CA, Jayme, husband Trevor and grandchildren Elizabeth, and Annabelle Sanders of San Diego, CA; father Gene Colpitts and wife Louise of McKinleyville, CA; mother-in-law Barbara Newman of Arcata, CA; as well as Lori, Shannon, Andy Newman and nephews Drew, Dusty and Matt Newman. Friends and family are invited to a Celebration of Life potluck that will be held at the Recreation Hall in the Valley East Mobile Estates in Arcata, CA on Saturday June 22, 2013 at 3 pm.
