Mary was born in Chatham, Louisiana on September 20,1930. She received her BA from Louisiana Tech. She lived in Alexandria, LA until 1970, and then spent the rest of her life in Shreveport.

Mary was a beautiful person in every respect. Her grace, kindness, and deep faith in Jesus Christ impacted the lives of all who knew her. She was happiest when surrounded by her family. "Granny," as she was known to all, had the special gift of making each child feel uniquely loved.

Beebe): Pam Beebe Gray (Chuck), Bunny Beebe Dixon (David), Ken Beebe (Tracy), and Ann Beebe Chreene; along with the four children she became Mom to when she married Reuben Webb: Vernon Webb (Angie), Frank Webb (LeDawn), Sarah Webb McCartin (Steve), and Gordon Webb (M'Lise); 18 grandchildren: Dan Gray (Susan), Beebe Gray Pickens, David Dixon (Jackie), Pamela Dixon Pennington (Eric), Kendrith Beebe (Sara), Hunter Beebe (Laura), Andy Chreene (Lacey), Stacey Chreene, Joshua Webb (Sarah), Jesse Webb, Cristen Webb, Caleb Webb, Brady Webb, Stephen Webb, Jackson Webb, Blake McCartin, Lindsey McCartin, and MaryMichael McCartin; and 6 great grandchildren: Gray Pickens, Thomas Gray, Nolan Gray, Juliette Dixon, Donovan Dixon, and Theo Webb. Mary had numerous beloved cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Also left to cherish her memory are Mary's sisters in Christ: Mary Lou Jones, her best friend of over 60 years, and Helen Church, her faithful friend and caregiver for 34 years.

Special thanks to Dr. Robert Hernandez, LifePath Hospice, Heritage Manor West, and Stephanie Anderson and the staff at Spencer Care Services, who were so good to our mother at the end of her life.

Mary was preceded in death by her parents: William and Floy Wilder Womack; and her siblings, Dawson Womack, Jack Womack, Tommy Womack, and Ruth Womack Cannon.

The family suggests that those wishing to make a donation in her memory consider Mary's childhood church, Chatham United Methodist Church, 902 Chatham Ave, Chatham, Louisiana 71226, or the charity of their choice.

Mrs. Webb was a kind, caring and generous person who was an example of grace and encouragement. She was a lovely lady in many respects, especially in spirit. It was an honor to know her and to learn from the example of her life and faith. My heart goes out to her family, particularly Pam, Bunny, Ken and Ann, their spouses and children.
