Louise Claybourn Newman


Louise Claybourn Newman

A woman of substance.
Independent, proud, loyal, courageous


With great sadness we announce the death of our dear friend Louise Claybourn Newman, beloved wife of the late Lewis Newman, on July 24, 2019 at the age of 64.

The last member of the Claybourn family, Louise is predeceased by her parents George and Daisy (Radcliffe) Claybourn, her brother Marvin (Donna), as well as several other brothers and sisters. She also had many nieces and nephews.

Born in the Old Victoria Hospital in Fredericton and raised in Barker's Point, Louise lived most of her life in Fredericton and Miramichi City, and will be greatly missed by her friends in both places.

Louise loved nothing more than spending time with friends, going for a double double at Tim’s, shopping, and most of all laughing. She never forgot a birthday or anniversary and could be counted on to have a card to mark the occasion of all those she cared for.Those of us who were lucky enough to be part of her life were so proud to be counted among her friends.

Arrangements are under the care of Bishops Funeral Home, 540 Woodstock Road, Fredericton NB. Messages of condolences and sharing of memories may be made at

A service to celebrate Louise will be held on August 24th, details to follow. 

In lieu of flowers, donations in Louise's memory, can be made to the New Brunswick Association of Community Living.
