Jean Webb, age 94, of South Charleston, passed away on Sunday July 17, 2022 at Hubbard Hospice House West.

She was born in Wayne County, daughter of the late Richard and Thelma Thompson Methax.  Jean was also preceded in death by her beloved son, Michael D. Webb; her brothers, Richard “Bud” and Jim Methax, as well as her faithful companion of 16 years, Kobi.

Jean was a Christian and attended 5th Avenue Church of God as well as Bible Center Church. When she moved to Charleston, she began working for Union Carbide in the payroll department where she eventually retired. Jean was very active and enjoyed exercise and staying busy whether it be yard work or taking aerobics twice a week well into her 80’s. Jean loved walking and participated in many Charleston Distance Walks throughout the years. She would constantly stress the importance of exercise and healthy living in which she was living proof.

Nana will forever be remembered as a strong, spunky go-getter. Her drive and determination and love of her family will forever be admired and missed.

    I worked with Jean in Purchasing at Union Carbide back in the 70’s. Jean was the sweetest lady and I truly enjoyed the many years where we had lots of talks while she worked in the Cashier’s office at Carbide. She was beautiful, funny and I will always remember how cute with her long ponytail and beautfiul smile. She was a light wherever she went. My condolences to her daughter, grandchildren and family.
