Obituary for Edward Vernon Webb

Print
Le Mars, Iowa - Edward Vernon Webb, 81, of Le Mars, Iowa passed away on Monday, October 15, 2018 at Brentwood Good Samaritan Village in Le Mars after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s. Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, October 19, 2018 at All Saints Catholic Parish - St. Joseph Church in Le Mars. Father Bruce Lawler will celebrate Mass. Burial will follow at Calvary Cemetery in Le Mars. Visitation with the family present will begin at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at St. Joseph Church. There will be a Scriptural Prayer Service at 7:00 p.m. Visitation will resume at 9:30 a.m. on Friday at the church.

Edward Vernon Webb was born September 6, 1937, in Fairfield, Iowa to Will and Eleanora (Adams) Webb. Growing up he lived on farms in Fremont, Oskaloosa, Somers and Milo while graduating from Somers High in 1954 at just 16 years old.

After going to business school in Omaha, Nebraska, Ed became a manager for a Gambles store in Sterling, Colorado where he met Betty Jean Schell and they were married on September 7, 1963. They went on to live in Casper, Wyoming before eventually settling in Le Mars, Iowa. They had three children through their union and became integrated into the community. Ed belonged to Knights of Columbus, Rotary club and loved coaching Little League. He had an unmatched work ethic, but on occasion, could be persuaded to watch either his beloved Cubs, Colts or an old western movie.

In 1985, the family moved to Apache Junction, Arizona where Ed helped with the startup of the Dow Sat Cable company. He and Betty lived there for 7 ½ years and made many lifelong friends, before they moved back to Iowa in 1991. He worked at True Value Hardware in Spirit Lake for a year before joining the Bomgaars organization in Le Mars in 1992. He was a store manager for a while in both Le Mars and Sioux Center, before retiring on November 20, 2015. Over the years he was recognized and awarded for his outstanding performance with both Gambles and Bomgaars.

Ed leaves behind his wife of 55 years, Betty of Le Mars, IA; their three children, Edward (Pam) of Le Mars, IA, Karen of Ankeny, IA and Kevin (Sam) of York, PA; four grandchildren, Cam’ron, Tamden, Kaitie and Peyton; brothers, Ron (Shirley) Webb and Joseph Webb; and a sister-in-law, Mary Ann Zink.

Ed is preceded in death by his parents, Eleanora and Will Webb; his mother-in-law and father-in-law, Marguerite and Adam Schell; his siblings, Claude Michael, James, and Oda Marie (Sheedy); his brothers-in-law, Al Sheedy, Paul Schell and Joe Zink.

Memorials in Ed’s name may be directed to the Alzheimer’s Association.
