WEBB, Mary Florine, 84, of Powhatan, a friend to everyone she met, passed away on December 28, 2020. Florine was an innocent child of God, mentally challenged all of her life, but happy and content. Her parents and siblings, with the help of relatives and friends, took care of her for 70 years. For the last 14 years, Amelia Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, now known as Wellsprings at Amelia, was her home. She loved the attention and care she received there and enjoyed her friends and activities, especially Bingo. Florine was born March 29, 1936, to Arthur Elburn Webb and Gladys Hubbard Webb. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sisters, Helen Pearson, Ann Grove and Alice Coppic. She is survived by her brother, John Wilbur Webb and his wife, Sandra, of Seymour, Tenn; as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews. Due to COVID-19, no viewing or indoor service will be held. A graveside service will be held on Tuesday, January 5, 2021, 11 a.m. at Providence Presbyterian Church, 1950 Ridge Road, Powhatan, Va. 23139, with the Rev. Lisa Salita officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Providence Presbyterian Church. Going to that church was perhaps the greatest joy of Florine's life. A Celebration of Life will be held at a future time.

Boo Boo as we called her, did indeed love bingo. She enjoyed post cards from Alice every week until her passing then Alice´s daughter took over, her face would light up with every correspondence. She also loved her many visits with Rev. Roy Robinson. He came a couple times a week to visit residents and would always push her around while visiting others, she would smile and laugh with every visit. When you walk in the door in the morning she was usually the first person you´d see in which she always wanted to show us the jewelry she chose to wear for the day.
I´ll never forget her all over smile and how she lit up just to see you coming. Rest In Peace Boo Boo!!

I am going to miss playing bingo, us visiting other people in the nursing home, looking through the newspaper together, and hanging out at various parties. I am going to miss her smile. I am going to miss her independent spirit. I am going to miss her contagious laugh. I will miss seeing her in her usual spot. My world is a little emptier now. I miss my dear friend.
