Webb, Jessie Leona, 84 of the Glen Haven Manor, New Glasgow formerly of the Marsh Road, Thorburn passed away January 11, 2018 at the manor with family by her side.
Born June 30, 1933 in Stellarton, she was a daughter of the late Edward and Sadie Winnifred(MacPherson)Fraser.
In her early childhood, she lived in Piedmont where she attended the community school. Later on, she resided in Stellarton where she worked at MacCara’s as a cook and was always known as a hard worker.
On February 12, 1958 Jessie married Floyd Isreal Leroy Webb and moved to Linacy. They later settled at the Marsh Road, Thorburn, spending her remaining years on their hobby farm, caring for the many gardens and enjoying the countless hours in her flower beds. Mom loved the sight of the sea, and the time spent at the cottage in Five Islands, digging clams and the soft ocean breeze against her cheeks. She was known for her cooking, especially her baking. She treasured her grandchildren and will be dearly missed by her sister Jean who spent many hours on the phone talking, and visiting with one another. She had a giving heart and will be missed.
She is survived by her sons; Floyd, Parrsboro; twins Dale(Tammany), Thorburn; Darrell(Brenda), Piedmont; 10 grandchildren; Floyd, Melissa, Jeremy(Lacey), (Stacey, Brittany, Dale Jr. and their mom Kim), Darrell "Christopher"(Shelly), Matthew(Ceilidh), Logan(Hillary), and Landon; 7 great-grandchildren; Nicole, Alisson, Zoey, Gauge, Madelynn, Carson and Owen, beloved sister Jean, 100 Mile House, BC; many nieces and nephews.
