Anna C. Newman Obituary
Newman, Anna C.
Feb 20, 1925 - Oct 4, 2018
Anna Cecilia Hope Frank Newman, 93, of Sarasota, FL died on Oct. 4, 2018 surrounded by friends and her children, Harry Newman and Cynthia Frank.
Born in Tampa, FL she attended Hillsborough High School, drove trucks at MacDill Air Force Base during WWII, and spent as many hours as possible jitterbugging with her friends at the Base. She spent many years working in the lumber industry in Tampa. She married CE "Ernie" Newman and moved to Sarasota, where she perfected her award-winning pie crusts. She and Ernie enjoyed many hours chasing the thrill of the "big win" at the race track. She became an avid breeder of dogs and horses, owned a greyhound racing kennel, and was honored with lifetime breeder awards for her champion Appaloosa horses. Anna was full of life and was crazy about fast cars, fine food, landing a snook, and sleepovers with Cody.
Anna is also survived by her son-in-law, Michael D. Miner, her grandson, E. Cody Miner, both of Sarasota, brother Ernest D. Hope of Tampa and her loving next-door neighbors Jerry and Jan Stephens.
Services will be held at 1:00 pm on Tuesday, October 9th at Toale Brothers Funeral Home, Gulf Gate Chapel, 6903 S. Tamiami Trail Sarasota. Interment to follow at Sarasota Memorial Park.
Memorials may be made in Anna's honor to Children's First of Sarasota.
