Charles Avery Newton

Charles A. Newton, 88, of Owensboro, passed away peacefully September 25, 2022, surrounded by his family. The Daviess County native was born October 16, 1933, to the late Walter and Bee Ann Newton. Charles married the love of his life, Bessie “Ann” Ball, on August 2, 1952. They met when they were thirteen at English Baptist Church where his grandfather pastored, and they corresponded through high school then married after graduation. They remained devoted to one another for 67 years until Ann’s passing in January 2020. Charles spent the last three years living near his daughter in Greenwood, Indiana but was otherwise a lifetime resident of Owensboro.

Charles served in the U.S. Army and was a graduate of Brescia College. He was an officer for the Owensboro Police Department but mostly worked for over thirty years as a Chemical Engineer for G.E. and MPD. Charles and his wife also owned the McKinney Piano and Organ Company before selling it in 1980. He was an active member of Third Baptist Church. After retirement, Charles enjoyed spending time in his newly built workshop, finding bargains at flea markets, and having breakfast with Ann and friends at Cracker Barrel.

 

Those left to cherish his memory include his daughter, Traci (Chris) Woolery of Greenwood, Indiana and his two granddaughters, Kara Renee Foster and her husband, William and Amanda Nicole Woolery.

 

The funeral service will be 10am Saturday at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory. Visitation will be Friday from 6pm until 8pm and Saturday from 9am until the time of the service. Burial will be in English Baptist Church Cemetery in Ammons, KY.
