She went on to receive her teaching degree with the help of her aunt Jonnie from Rust College. She was a substitute teacher at North Ponola High School. Higher education was important to Betty. She received her masters in social work from Governor’s State in Chicago, IL. Betty Webb was united in holy matrimony to Walker James Webb who proceeded her in death. The union was blessed with one child, their son, Stanley Webb. Betty was the kindest most caring person that you could have ever met. She enjoyed working, her family, and friends and went out of her way to ensure that everyone was taken care of. It is no wonder that she chose a career in social work. She worked as a Human Services Specialist with the City of Chicago for 51 years. She also enjoyed the theater and chose a second job at the Goodman Theater. She spoke often of the plays that she’d seen and the cast parties she attended. Relaxing in the evening she enjoyed television. Her favorites were westerns, Law and Order SVU, Let’s Make a Deal, Price is Right, any judge show, and the Cooking Channel.
