India is leaving behind a host of people to cherish her loving memory. A husband, Will A. Newby Sr; two sons Gregory L. Cooper Sr., and Will A.

India was a role model and best friend to her family, friends and all that knew her. She loved and was proud of her family in everything they have done. She cared deeply for her children and grandchildren and was so proud of the way they grew up.

She was a great cook and many people know her from working at Tom and Jerry Quick Stop for many years. She was a member at Dunamis Christian Center of Newport News until her health failed her.

Her kind, loving, and gentle spirit will be greatly missed but never forgotten. We love you “E.’ Forever and always.
