Theresa "Terri" Lee Newton

Service Information

A memorial service to honor Terri's life will be held at Rocky Point in Oak Harbor on January 20th. Family and friends will gather to share cherished memories and celebrate the impact Terri had on their lives.

Theresa “Terri” Lee Newton, 71, passed away on October 20, 2023. Born on June 24, 1952, in LaPorte, Indiana, to Reba Sue Martin and William Newton. Terri spent most of her youth and young adult life around Santa Clara County, California. Married into the Navy (Robert E. Duncan), she spent time in Texas, Japan and on Whidbey Island where she settled to raise her two children and dedicated 30 years to her career at Idex Corporation in Oak Harbor, WA. Terri was a beloved mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Terri had a kind and compassionate nature that endeared her to everyone she met. Terri was a devoted mother to Leesa (Kurt) Parker and Robert (Nicole) Duncan, and a doting grandmother to Emma, Hunter, Jakson Duncan, and Audrey and David Parker.

Throughout her life, Terri found great joy in her hobbies and traveling. She had a passion for painting, photography, and crafts. Her love for classic rock and country music always brought a smile to her face and gave a great excuse for a road trip. 

Contributions in Terri’s name can be made to the Mount Baker Foundation for diabetes related kidney disease awareness or the Whatcom Hospice House in memory of Terri. The family appreciates all the support that has been given during this difficult time.
