Her generosity was limitless, her home was always the place where everyone was welcome, a place where many brothers, nieces, nephews, grandkids as well as friends would call home in a time of need.

Webster Sr. and Ethel "Grandmother Webster"; parents, William David Webster and Elsie Mae Webster-Woodson; brothers, Michael "Mickey" David Webster and John R.
