Elizabeth Joan Webb was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She left this world peacefully on December 27, 2020 at age 89.
Elizabeth was born to Slim and Joda Lewis on March 2, 1931 in Hobbs, NM. She met her husband, James A. Webb, while working in her father’s cafe in Lovington, NM. They were married in 1949 in Lovington and had 2 children, Sally Joan and Jeannan. They moved throughout New Mexico and Oklahoma before settling their family in Houston, Texas where they spent the majority of their lives.
Elizabeth spent most of her adult life helping to care for her eldest daughter, Sally, who was born with William’s Syndrome. Once Sally was grown, Elizabeth became greatly involved with the organizations that helped to support her and other mentally disabled adults. She was a very talented china painter and even won Grand Champion at the South Plains Fair in Lubbock, Tx several years in a row. When she wasn’t caring for her family or painting, Elizabeth loved traveling and spending time outside in the flower beds, growing all kinds of beautiful flowers to keep in her home.
