Mrs. Darlene Annette Newby, age 60, of Ekron, KY, passed away on Thursday, November 5, 2020, at Baptist Health Hardin in Elizabethtown, KY, surrounded by her husband and children. Darlene was born March 29, 1960, the daughter of Joe Ernest and Lorine Rogers Stewart. Darlene was a loving mother, wife and grandmother who loved spending time with her grandkids. She was faithful to her family and always was the consummate homemaker, taking care of the house for her husband. She was known for her hollering and maybe a little foul language.

She is survived by her husband, Harry Newby; four children, Tierra (CJ) Decker, Andre Newby, Matthew Newby; and Shanell (Kevin Bowden) Newby; five sisters, Marilyn Johnson, Wanda Faye Murray, Eliza Johnson, Virginia Ann Young and Minnie King; four brothers, James, Robert, Danny and Terry Stewart; her father-in-law, Aldridge Newby; two brothers-in-law, Raymond Johnson and Tim Murray; an aunt, Bettye Banks; and nine grandchildren.
