She was born to Dottie East Weems, in Urania, Louisiana, losing her father at a very early age and passed away Tuesday, September 19th, 2023, in Shreveport.

For those who knew her, she always had a bright smile to greet you.  She was pint sized with plenty of spunk.  Her energy and beauty would light up any room.  As a registered nurse, her laughter and southern charm nurtured many patients at Willis Knighton Hospital in Shreveport.

She was married to the love of her life, James Leroy Newland. Together, they enjoyed many years next to anything water:  Poolside, dockside or camp side, hosting cookouts and serving their famous fried fish!  Together they loved their retirement years boating on Toledo and fishing with their son Steve and their grandson Emmett.  She was thankful to live her life at her home and often spoke of her friend Judy Kidd and family who remained truly by her side.

She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, James Leroy Newland; sons, Jimmy Newland and Steven Wayne Newland and his wife, Kimberly Gail Newland, sister, JoAnn Sharp, nephew, James Sharp and great nephew, Cody Ebarb.

She is survived by her grandson, James Emmett Newland and wife, Heather Newland; great grandson, Nicholas Alexander Newland; niece, Karin Sharp Guice and husband Mark; niece, Kimberly Sharp Ebarb and husband Wayne; along with a host of great nieces and nephews.

Honoring her as pallbearers are family members: James Newland, Mark Guice, Rusty Rice, Wayne Ebarb, Dwayne Ebarb and Trevor Ebarb.
