Hubert Ernest Newland was welcomed into the arms of Jesus on December 1, 2011 while surrounded by those who loved him.
He was born the seventh of eight children at his home in Happy Valley, Idaho on May 20, 1921 to Joseph Clyde and Nora Newland. He attended Highline School and Nampa High School. Growing up, he learned about farming while helping his father.
Hub met Mildred Matthews at a dance and knew she was the one for him. They were married on October 26, 1944 after a 3 month, whirlwind romance. After living with his parents for a year, Hub and Mildred started their own farm with 6 cows, 5 hogs, 4 work horses, and $100 from his dad. Hub farmed and milked cows north of Kuna for many years. He was always known for his hard work and great looking crops. Having a passion for farming, Hub said that he never wanted do anything other than farm.
In retirement, he and Mildred were always found together raising chickens, goats and searching out deals at garage sales. Hub was a faithful husband who was loved and respected by those around him. He never asked for much for himself, but willingly gave to others.
Hub was well known for his sense of humor and never lacked for one-liners. When asked how he was doing, he would respond, "just right." We praise the Lord he is finally "Just right."
Hub was preceded in death by his parents and 7 siblings.
He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Mildred, his children: Kay Spingath of Salem, OR ; Faye(Dave) Eisentrager of Boise, ID; Jerry(Joann) Newland of Meacham, OR; Susan(Joe) Armstrong of Benton City, WA; daughter-in-love Barb Newland of Nampa, ID; 9 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, one great-great grandchild, and many nieces and nephews who loved him.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Heart and Home Hospice who lovingly cared for and supported the family, A Caring Hand, and Pastor Scott Piper.
A viewing will be held at Kuna Baptist Church at 1:00pm on Wednesday, December 7, with the memorial service at 2:00 and interment to follow at the Church. Memorial gifts may be sent to Kuna Baptist Church.
