In Loving Memory of
Mildred Eileen Newman
Mildred Eileen Newman, 78, of Knoxville, Tennessee, passed away peacefully
surrounded by her loved ones, Saturday, February 13th, 2021.
Eileen was born in Hayden, Colorado in 1942 and graduated from Littleton High School
in 1960. During high school, Eileen was a talented photographer and contributed greatly
to her senior yearbook and other school events.
Being a great conversationalist and thoughtful listener, Eileen spent many years working
on the phone, in several different industries. She fulfilled her dream of becoming a 911
call processor from where she retired at 65. After a year of retirement, with the desire to
stay active and social, she sought out employment at GC Services in Knoxville where she
retired a second time at the age of 76.
After retirement, Eileen enjoyed spending time with her family, watching movies,
listening to music, playing games, and chatting on social media. She also spent time with
her bird “Cowboy” and her dogs “Dizzy” and “Cheebs”.
Eileen was a resilient woman, who despite hardships and many challenges throughout
her life, was funny, kind-hearted, and had a smile that would warm your heart. She was
loved and cherished by many, and though she will be dearly missed, she will live on in
the memories of those whose lives she touched.
Eileen is survived by her four treasured daughters, Vicki Patterson, Casey Giles, Shannon
Kerwin, Jackie Newman (Mikey), and a dear Son, Scott Neubill. She also leaves behind
her beloved grandchildren Bill Patterson (Sarah), David Patterson, Dan Patterson,
Stephanie Kish (Chris), Jessica Coleman (Gary), Grant Boss, Kiefer Boss, Leanna Peavy
(David), Michelle Neubill (Jeremiah), Matthew Neubill (Zoe) and many wonderful
There will be no funeral services at this time, but a Celebration of Life Ceremony is in the
planning stages for Spring. In lieu of flowers, bring potato salad and join us in the Spring
to share some wonderful memories of this sweet and beautiful soul.
Mom. I love you so very much. You understood me when no one else was even willing to. You were the youngest soul I ever ran across. I am so very blessed to have had you in my life.
One of the two best friends I ever had. Eileen and i met in 3rd grade and practically lived in each other’s heads until high school graduation. We stayed in close touch for many years, then less, as people do. But we always knew where the other was and how life was. I didn’t know Eileen passed because I am fighting my own battle, and got wrapped up in that I guess.
Thanks for so much good friendship, and you were never far from my mind, no matter where you were in the country. Hey, maybe I’ll see you again soon!
