Carolyn Newell, 89
Lyn was born in Glen Ridge to Helen and John B. Bishop on July 20, 1927. She was raised in Montclair and was married to her devoted husband, Leroy “Roy” B. Newell, Jr. on February 25, 1950. In 1955, they moved their young family to Verona.
As a teenager, Lyn professed her faith in Christ. Her faith motivated her to serve God by serving others for the rest of her life. She was known for her faithful guidance, encouragement, counsel, and mentorship. Her energetic personality and genuine love for others enabled her to teach neighborhood Bible studies in Verona, North Caldwell, Nutley and Bloomfield for over 50 years. She taught the Women’s Bible Class at Brookdale Baptist Church and later served at the Montclair Community Church. She also volunteered with the medical transport for senior citizens in Verona.
Carolyn was known as “Mimi” by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They will remember her for her stories, bedtime songs and famous “pillow surprises” but mostly for her love and constant prayers for each of them, individually, throughout their lives.
Lyn was predeceased by her husband of 57 years, Roy, and by her sister Anne (nee Bishop) Williams. She is survived by her children Mark Newell of Verona, Kevin Newell and his wife Nancy of Black River Falls, Wisc., Caryn Skinner and her husband Gary of Bloomfield, Lee Newell and his wife Marcia of Verona, her dear brother Jack Bishop and his wife Phebe of Essex Falls and by her cherished 17 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
A Memorial Service to celebrate her life and Homegoing will be held Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 2 p.m. at Montclair Community Church, 143 Watchung Avenue, Upper Montclair. Condolences may be sent to the family through the Van Tassel Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers please go to online site donate.intervarsity.org.
