Leona Mildred Carpenter Newman was born September 18, 1926, in Aberdeen, MS and passed away October 8, 2022, in Monroe, LA. She grew up in Darnell, LA, and graduated from Pioneer High School.

Newman; her parents, William and Gillie Carpenter; brothers, Irving Carpenter and wife Margaret, Allen Carpenter and wife Bo, and Leon Carpenter and wife Marrin; sister, Rena Clay Heath and husband Wiley; and son-in-law, Steve Terry.
