Avery Monroe Newton, infant, of Apollo, PA, peacefully passed away on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at UPMC Magee Hospital in Pittsburgh, after being born just two days earlier on May 5th.
A true miracle, she defied all odds, and was welcomed into this world by her Mom and Dad, Cady and Joshua Newton, who consider it such an honor that Avery chose them to be her parents. Although born too soon, she lived her entire short life as a fighter unequaled in her sheer will to live. Avery amazed all around her, even the medical professionals, with her courage and ability to endure during the time she spent with them all. Every single minute she shared with her family was a gift they will always treasure and never forget.
In addition to her parents, Avery’s surviving family includes her maternal grandmother, Kelly M. Anderson of Apollo; paternal grandparents, Chad E. and Allison Newton of Leechburg; great-grandparents, Brenda Newton of Leechburg, Janet and Francis Ball of Texas, Antoinette and Harris Andrews of Vandergrift; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Friends welcomed for her memorial service on Saturday, May 18, 2019 at 11 a.m. at Clawson Funeral & Cremation Center, 170 Main Street, Leechburg (724-842-1051) with Rev. Tom Spiker officiating.
