John was quick to help out anyone often never accepting anything in return. He would never turn down a request of help no matter the time; night or day. He loved his family dearly and showed it by the things he did for them. He had a warm welcome smile for most, but if he did not like you he'd let you know.
He grew up in Norton and lived there most of his life in his family home. John loved to fish and hunt and enjoyed walking in the woods with his children. He was quick to smile and known for his one liners and dry wit.
When he welded two pieces of metal together they stayed, one of his first welding jobs was building a skidder; this year that very same skidder showed itself in his yard some 30 plus years later ready to haul logs, evidence of his skill and work ethic.
John is survived by his wife Linda; children Matthew and Patty Teakles of Hatfield Point, Crystal Teakles and Ozzy Rennie of Hatfield Point, Adam Teakles of Hatfield Point, Amber Teakles and Shawn Smith of Saint John, and Shane Teakles of Hatfield Point; grandson Cameron; sisters-in-law, Debra Evans and her husband Pierre Lepine of Kingston, ON, Dawn Evans of Saint John, Sharon Evans of Sussex; brother-in-law Daniel Evans of Saint John and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

In 1946, following the war, Dot married Sandy, her loving husband of 58 years. Together they established a farm along the Washademoak Lake in MacDonald’s Corner, where their days were filled caring for their four daughters, a few Jersey cows, a herd of Herefords, pigs, chickens, vegetables, grain and a woodlot. Dot loved working in her flower gardens and had a soft spot for the wild birds whom she faithfully fed.
Dot was a member of the First Cambridge Church, where through the years she served as Sunday School teacher, organist and secretary-treasurer. She was a member of the church choir and a Life Member of the Women’s Missionary Society. She also enjoyed her time as a member of the Gloria Dei Singers, led by Mrs. Roy Cooper.

The death of Leona Violet (McLaughlin) Newton, age 93, of Sussex, NB , wife of the late Walter R. Newton, occurred at the Kiwanis Nursing Home, Sussex, on Friday, October 21, 2011. She was born on February 10, 1918, in Norton, NB, and raised on Dickie Mountain, the daughter of the late Sherman and Mabel (Pierce) McLaughlin.
Leona is survived by her children Sterling Mercer (Sandra) of Petawawa, ON, Roy Mercer (Mary) of Sussex, the twins, Frances Cunningham (Winsor) of Belleisle Creek, NB and Frank Mercer of Edmonton, AB, Nancy Mabee (Charlie) of Beaverton, ON, Sarah Nesbitt (Larry) of Scarborough, ON; grandchildren Shawn Mercer (Alice), Lee Mercer (Marilyn), Lisa Mercer (Jeff), Cindy Boyd (Andrew), Kim Fulford (Brad), Diana Mabee (Jake), Walter Nesbitt; 17 great grandchildren; 2 great great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by two grandchildren Bill and Wayne Mabee; her sisters Viola Long Smith, Bernice Coughlin, Iva McLaughlin and Lois Copeman and brother Ora McLaughlin.
Like all of the McLaughlin children, Leona was proud of growing up on Dickie Mountain. She loved to tell the stories about walking back and forth to school in Norton, seeing bears, visiting the lady that smoked a corn cob pipe and hid it behind her back when the kids came by, but the smoke would still curl up over her head. There were many stories about Gen, the horse, who if she got the chance would come home alone from Norton leaving whoever was driving to walk back. Often the girls would take Gen and head back to pick up their Mom and Dad.
Around 1952 Leona and her brood of six moved to Riverbank/Norton and remained there for five years. They were lean times however they were good times. Family and friends offered the assistance required and there was always a meal for anyone who came by. Leona was quite home bound except for work in Sussex.
After marriage to Walter and the children were grown up, they moved to Saint John where Walter worked for the USA Consulate. From there they accepted transfers to Halifax and later Ottawa. So many moves gave Leona a travel bug which saw her visit Germany, most of Canada and Northern USA. When the Newton’s retired they moved from Ottawa to Belleisle Creek and then to Sussex where they attended Trinity Anglican Church and enjoyed the friendship of the church family. Leona loved to cook and there was always a cookie and a cup of tea for anyone that could sit a spell.
She loved to dance if there was a good tune playing and even in her last months when she heard the music you would see her toe tapping.
She is resting at Sherwood's Funeral Home and Life Tribute Centre (506-839-2156), 18 Scovil Road, Norton, NB, with visiting from 3 to 5 and 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday. Funeral Service, conducted by The Venerable David Barrett, will be held from Sherwood's Chapel at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 25, 2011. Following cremation interment will be in Riverbank Cemetery.
Donations in memory of Leona, may be made to Kiwanis Nursing Home or to the memorial of the donor’s choice.
