Obituary of Ruth Audrey Newsom
Newsom, Ruth “Ruthie”, 92, of Belleair, FL, passed away September 25, 2023 at Morton Plant Hospital.
Ruth was born and raised in Newburgh, NY and had recently moved to sunny Florida.
Ruth was preceded in death by her parents John and Jane Pollock and her siblings Jane Dryer, John Pollock, and Anna Genter. She is survived by her loving husband, Clyde Newsom; brother Bob Pollock, son Scott (Marianne) Newsom; daughter Kriste (Tom) Hoffman; son Russell Newsom; grandchildren Erika Clark, Heidi Newsom, Kelsey McKenna, Evan Hoffman, Jared Newsom, and James Newsom; and her great-grandchildren Savannah, Derrick, Ava and Emerson.
Ruth loved her Lord and was a member of Moulton Memorial Baptist church. She was an avid reader of the Bible, as well as many novels, and she loved classical music. She will be remembered by many as the Card Lady, as she always remembered to send a note of support, sympathy, or birthday and holiday wishes. (If you know, you know.)
She loved her husband, her children, and all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Pictures and videos brought a smile to her face, especially towards the end of her life.
Ruth’s service will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations in Ruth’s name can be sent to Moulton Memorial Baptist church in Newburgh, NY.To plant a beautiful memorial tree in memory of Ruth Newsom, please visit our Tree Store
