Katherine Daggett Newman, 75, beloved wife and mother, passed away June 18, 2020 in Cleveland. Born to John and Mary Katherine Daggett on June 17, 1945, in Niagara Falls, Katherine is survived by her husband, Robert Newman; son, Raymond Newman (Margaret); son, James Newman (Susan); daughter, Colleen Newman; grandchildren, Julia, Edwin, Jacob and Charles Newman; and brother-in-law John C. Newman, M.D.
A graduate of Endicott College, Katherine devoted her life to helping others through volunteer work in her community. A dedicated spouse, parent and grandparent, Katherine adored and loved dearly her family. Having known Robert since the age of 15, Katherine and Robert forged a relationship of love and devotion for over 60 years. In addition, she enjoyed traveling and seeing many different parts of the world (England with Robert and Colleen – perhaps this trip solidified her love of sheep), but she held a special place in her heart for Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and time spent with her sister, Gail Perry, in White River Junction, Vermont.
Katherine Daggett Newman will be sorely missed by her family. She possessed an inner light and spirit that filled those around her with love, joy and a true sense of belonging. She made everyone feel “at home” in her presence.
