Zora Francis (Pearl) Webb passed away on May 10, 2017 after a prolonged illness. Her early life began in Stevensonville, Tennessee as the oldest daughter of Frank and Anna Belle Amis. In 1951, she moved from Tennessee to Fort Worth where she married and raised her four children. Her ex-husband’s employment with IBM resulted in the family moving from Texas in 1974 to Bowie, Maryland, back to Texas and eventually to Burke, Virginia. By 1985 she had settled in Falls Church, Virginia and worked as a sales associate for Lord and Taylor. In 1992, upon her retirement from Lord and Taylor, she made the decision to relocate to Gloucester, Virginia
Her time in Gloucester was spent working for the Agency on Aging with the “Meals on Wheels Program”, as a volunteer with the Gloucester Public Library and Army Community Service at Fort Eustis. More importantly, her spiritual needs were met as a loyal member of First Baptist Church of Ordinary. This important relationship has sustained her up until the end of her days.

Praise his Holy Name.”
