Ida Margaret Newell, daughter of the late Joel and Ruby May (Hawken) Luttrell, was born December 20, 1933 in a cabin near Brumley, Missouri. She attended school later in Barton County before moving to Richland graduating from the eighth grade there. Ida married the boy next door, George Donald Newell on January 4, 1950 in Waynesville, Missouri, and shared over sixty-nine years together. God blessed their lives with five children. Ida was a devoted homemaker, wife, mother, and grandmother to her family; and enjoyed the privilege of helping raise four of her grandchildren. Ida also worked outside the home for the HD LEE and Brown Shoe Factories. In August of 1955, Ida was saved while attending Dublin Baptist Church, and was baptized in the Gasconade River. Later, Ida moved her membership to Elm Grove where she was a member for forty years. Ida & George then moved their membership to First Baptist, before joining Grace Baptist Church in Richland where they currently attend. Throughout Ida’s life she enjoyed gardening, horseback riding, fishing, and raising bottles calves. Ida was a talented artist and was a member of the Richland Art Guild. She loved painting pictures and had won ribbons from time to time. However, her greatest love was her family. She treasured the times spent with them. With her family by her side, Ida quietly left this world behind to reside in her Father’s Heavenly home the evening of Saturday, September 21, 2019 while at the Richland Care Center having attained the age of eighty-five years.
