Monica Newbold Shay

Jan. 10, 1953 -July 3, 2011

No brother ever had a better sister.

Monica, you were the greatest.  You taught me so much and I was in awe of you always.  I will love you and miss you until the day I die.

Happy Birthday Monica,

-Ed Newbold


PS.  My heart goes out to my brother-in-law Paul and the Shay family, who also lost Joe Four.  And Delia’s and my heart goes out to the family and friends of Park Ranger Margaret Anderson, hero of Paradise, and all those who have lost loved ones to violence.

    I knew both Ed and Monica when I lived in Pottstown, PA, as a teenager. It was the 60’s, and we worked together on an underground newspaper called “The Minor’s Lamp”. I went to Pottsgrove High School, they went to Boyertown High. I loved the Newbolds’ home, which was landscaped by Ed and Monica’s father, Albert. It was a lovely oasis in the turbulence of my teenage years, and the times that were the 60’s.

    Some years later in 1980 my then wife, Claire, and I were living in Morristown, New Jersey. We spent a remarkable evening – still one of the most amazing of my life – with Monica, and old friends Bill and Hermann (from Hamburg, Germany) – at our little apartment. I think we could have levitated the whole town.

    I have been blessed and privileged to have known and worked with many brilliant and good people in my life, but I still think that our little group in Pottstown – Ed, Monica, Bill and Hermann – rank at the top of my list, both in terms of intelligence, and as human beings.

    I was shocked and saddened to hear of Monica’s death. I remember her mostly as a bright, energetic, opinionated (in a good way), intellectually challenging and good-hearted 17 year-old. She will live on in my heart and my mind.
