Jeremy Newton

Jeremy Matthew Newton was born September 5, 1975 to John Paul and Betty Marie (Wilmer) Newton in Harlan, Iowa. Jennifer Marie joined the family on August 2, 1978. Jeremy graduated from Mount Ayr Community High School in 1994, Ellsworth Community College in 1996 and Iowa State University College of Design in 1999.

He married the love of his life, Sarah Jean Galloway, on August 7, 1999. They were blessed with three wonderful children; Will Matthew (2004), Anne Marie (2006), and Kate Marie (2009). His children brought him much joy and he was very proud of them.

Jeremy owned and operated his own landscaping business for a few years before joining the Ringgold County Sheriff’s office as a deputy. He served his community for 6 years. He spent several years doing drafting work before joining the Ringgold County Assessor’s Office.

Jeremy accepted Christ as his Lord & Savior toward the end of his junior year in high school. He was a faithful member of the Mount Ayr Regular Baptist Church. Jeremy was an avid hunter who loved the outdoors and wildlife.

Jeremy passed away September 12, 2021. He was preceded in death by his sister Jennifer; grandparents Paul & Lucille Newton and George & Thelma Wilmer.

Left to cherish his memory are wife Sarah; children Will, Anne, and Kate; parents John & Betty Newton; parents-in-law Robert & Carol Anne Galloway; sister-in-law Laura (Vova) Kisarets; nephew Ivan Kisarets; nieces Gabriella, Evelina, and Liliana Kisarets; along with many uncles, aunts, cousins, and many other family members.

A memorial fund has been established in his name to be determined.

I'm very sorry to hear the news of Jeremy's death. I was a classmate of his at ISU in the Landscape Architecture Department. Sadly, our lives took us on very different paths and we haven't crossed since 1999. I fondly remember Jeremy in school, he didn't say much during class, but what he did say was always thoughtful and right to the point. I hope and pray that his kids are able to move beyond this tragic loss and understand that the sun will shine again and that their father was a good person. My deepest sympathies to the entire Newton family. Sincerely.

We are very sorry to learn of Jeremy's death. We look forward to seeing him alive again in the resurrection. Jesus promised, "Do not be amazed at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life." John 5:28, 29
