Obituary for Jerald Dwayne Newsom

Jerald Dwayne Newsom passed away on Friday, November 30, 2018. He was 84.

A native of Bruce, Mississippi, born April 30, 1934, he was the son of the late Frank M. and Mary Lou Neal Newsom. He retired with Corr-Williams following many years of service.

Mr. Newsom will be remembered as a wonderfully genuine and giving person, the epitome of living a life of compassion, kindness and turning the other cheek. He believed in helping others and being welcoming to all. He was an avid gardener and was known to many as “The Tomato Man” always giving away to his friends and neighbors. His sense of humor and joyful spirit will be missed greatly. Above all, he loved the Lord and enjoyed sharing the Bible and the word of God with others. He was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle and friend.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his wife of 49 years, Elsie Johnson Newsom; and his sisters: Stella Martin, Birdie Carter, and Virgie Wilson.

He is survived by his children: son, Mike Newsom (Sheila), of Duck Hill, MS; daughter, Debra Newsom, of Bartlett, TN; daughter, Sandra Trussell (Mickie), of Gore Springs, MS; daughter, Teresa Monaghan (Randy), of Flowood, MS; daughter, Tina Bennett (Dennis), of Milner, GA; daughter, Denice Perkins (Pat), of Madison, MS; ten grandchildren, two great grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, December 3, 2018 at Sebrell Funeral Home Chapel, the Rev. Andy Stoddard, officiating. Interment will follow in Lakewood Memorial Park. Visitation will begin after 9:30 a.m. on Monday at the funeral home.

Pallbearers will be Zachary “Zach” Perkins, Travis Perkins, Joshua “Josh” Hall, Keith Stewart, Michael Newsom, and Joey Trussell.
