Gifts & Memorial Donations

Billie Jo (Rhodes) Webb, 68, passed away peacefully at her home in Williamsburg, Virginia, on January 3, 2016, after a battle with brain cancer.  Mrs. Webb served as a certified nurse’s assistant (CNA) for nearly 40 years at Williamsburg Community Hospital, which was renamed “Sentara Hospital.”   She applied her many CNA skills, to care for her husband of 42 years, Harry Webb, during his fight with prostate cancer.  Although she was diagnosed with brain cancer only four weeks prior to his May 31, 2015 death, Mrs. Webb continued to serve as his primary caregiver, while beset with her own illness.

In addition to her roles as wife, mother, and grandmother, Mrs. Webb was an active participant in Jewish praise dancing activities at her place of worship, the Congregation for Zion’s Sake, a Messianic Congregation where Jews and Gentiles worship joyfully as one.  Like others in her congregation, she loved Lord, Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior.  Mrs. Webb enjoyed nature.  Birds captured her attention – particularly owls, with their beautiful eyes and graceful flight.  She found horse-drawn carriage rides in Colonial Williamsburg enjoyable, and for 30 years, was recognized by many locals, strolling with her beloved dog, “Baby” and walking with her cherished friends.

Mrs. Webb was pre-deceased by her husband of 42 years, Harry Webb, and her beloved aunt, Ruby Holley.  She is survived by two daughters, Holley Webb and Sarah McCreary; two grandchildren, Shannon and Shane McCreary, and her brother-in-law, Joseph “Mike” Webb.
will be held on January 17, 2016-6:00 pm at Congregation for Zion’s Sake located at: 1233 Shields Rd, Newport News, VA The Webb family expresses its appreciation to friends and acquaintances for their kind support, both prior to Mrs. Webb’s death, and thereafter.  Donations in may be contributed through Treasured Memories Charitable Funding (TMC), This is a secured sight to safely bless the family with monetary gifts and help them with home, funeral, and medical bills as well as  other expenditures.

    She always had a smile and a kind word for all. Her quiet and dedicated faith in our Lord was truly inspiring. She really loved our Lord and I am blessed to have known her.

    So sorry to hear for the loss. Holley, her daughter, is a very close family friend and took great care of her mother during her final stages. I wish the family peace and comfort during this hard time.

    I first met Billie in July 1983 as I was starting out as a new nurse at Williamsburg Community Hospital. Billie had a very sweet, quiet, gentle spirit. I have no memory of her ever saying anything negative or mean about anyone. I remember her having a very deep and sincere love for her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I believe that Billie lived and walked in the peace that only Jesus can give. I am saddened that she is no longer among us physically, however, my heart is full of joy believing that she is resting with the Lord singing and dancing in His presence .Billie was an example of living a life dedicated to God. An example we should try to pattern our own lives after. My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this time. I do hope and pray that you allow Billie's legacy to manifest in your lives. God bless you all.
