Louise Newbury is the widow of actor Bill Paxton.
Wife of Bill Paxton
Louise Newbury and Bill Paxton first met in London while both of them were traveling on a bus. At that time, Louise was 17 and a college student while Bill was struggling with his career.
I met my wife on the number 37 bus on the Twickenham High Street, in London. I saw a gal in a bus queue… She looks my way as she gets on the bus, and that was all the incentive I needed.
After a few years of dating, they got married on May 12, 1987. Since then the pair are going very strong together until Bill’s death in 2017. They were together for three decades.
Husband Died in 2017
Louise Newbury’s husband Bill Paxton died on February 25, 2017, in Los Angeles, California at the age of 61 following a stroke.
He died 11 days after the surgery to replace a heart valve and repair aorta damage. In 2018, Paxton’s family filed a lawsuit against Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
The lawsuit claimed that the surgeon was lacking in experience and he used an unnecessary “high risk and unconventional surgical approach.” The Paxton family won the case and they were awarded $1 million by an anesthesiologist medical group.
