Chadwick Funeral and Cremation Service - New London Obituary

Elizabeth Thomas Webb passed away peacefully on June 23, 2017. Born Elizabeth Alden Thomas on October 4, 1920 in Islip, New York, she attended St. Agnes School in Albany and then Katherine Gibbs Secretarial School in New York City. Summers were spent in Thetford, Vermont where she was a counselor at Camp Hanoun. She worked in New York City for several years until meeting and marrying Richard H. Webb in 1951. Together they established a home and small farm in Sunapee where she raised 6 children and helped run the farm. Her love of the ocean and spending time with family led to many summers spent camping on Cape Cod or traveling as a fairly large group to other places. They continued to travel for many years, sometimes visiting family and sometimes taking family with them. Upon the birth of their first grandchild they became Grammy and Pops to all who knew them well and they loved watching their grandchildren grow to young adulthood.

She was a member of several organizations in the area and was particularly active with the United Methodist Women, the preservation of the Old Town Hall/Harbor House Livery building, and the Sunapee Thrift Store.

She is survived by six children and their spouses: Tom and Jackie Webb, Portland, OR; Paul Webb and Lisa Hall, Palm Coast, FL; Brad and Andrea Webb, Hightstown, NJ; Van and Robin Webb, Sunapee, NH; Tom and Faith Reney, Sunapee, NH; Bayard Webb and Lyle Engler, Reno, NV and eleven grandchildren.

Memorial services will be held at the Lake Sunapee Methodist Church on July 15 at 11:00am with a reception to follow. There will also be a graveside service at the South Cemetery on Harding Hill Road, Sunapee at 1:00pm. Memorial contributions may be made to the Sunapee Heritage Alliance, PO Box 72, Sunapee, NH 03782.

Not sure what to say?

I will forever have so many wonderful memories of your Mom, Aunt Lizzy, to me and spending time with all of you on the farm. As I grew older, I remember traveling with your family down to the Cape and helping your Mom look after the youngest members. The friendship that your Mom had with my Aunt Scot and mother, Lil Trow was very special. Aunt Lizzy will always have a special place in my heart as she was an important part of my childhood memories. I extend my deepest sympathy to all of you....

I am deeply sorry for the loss of Elizabeth. May God's loving kindness bring peace and comfort during this sad and difficult time. Psalms 29:11
