HOISINGTON - Selma Faye Webb, 87, died October 16, 2020, at Clara Barton Hospital, Hoisington. She was born August 10, 1933, in Wagoner, Oklahoma, the daughter of Ottis Clinton and Mable (Hefley) Flippin.
On August 26, 1952, she married Harold Harvey Webb in Wagoner, Oklahoma. He preceded her in death on March 8, 2002.
A resident of Hoisington since 1964, Selma was a homemaker and had worked at Clara Barton Hospital as a dietary aide and in housekeeping. She was a member of the New Life Baptist Church of Hoisington.
Selma was always very involved in her community. When her children were young, she was a Boy Scout Den Mother and Girl Scout Leader, led fundraisers for sports teams and other organizations, and was a co-founder of the Hoisington Youth Wrestling Club. Later she was active with the Heritage Club, RSVP Thrift Store, volunteering for the Blood Mobile, and as a Pink Lady at Clara Barton Hospital. When not volunteering she loved to travel. She was blessed to get to take multiple trips both domestic and abroad, visiting several different countries. She enjoyed group bus tours and mission trips. She was a voracious reader, and her trips were often inspired by reading about a place and convincing Harold, or later her close companion Garry, that they needed to go check it out.
Selma is survived by; sons, Phillip Webb and wife Celia of Hoisington, and John Webb and wife Courtney of Noble, Oklahoma; a daughter, Martha Jones and husband Michael of Tulsa, Oklahoma; daughters-in-law, Julie Webb of St. Louis, Missouri, and Marcia Webb of Carl Junction, Missouri; longtime companion, Garry Dassow of Hoisington; sisters, Nina Hulsey of Grove, Oklahoma, and Jayne Mitchell of Tulsa, Oklahoma; 10 grandchildren, Corey Webb, Scott Webb, Samuel Webb, Nathan Webb, Joseph Webb, Dacon Parks, Rachel Jones, Ethan Jones, Ryan Webb, and Grant Webb; and 5 great grandchildren.
