Webb, Helen Hall
Helen Lucille Hall Webb of Christiansburg, Virginia went to her Lord’s arms in heaven and was reunited with her beloved husband of 70 years, Wayne (“Billy Wayne”) Webb on March 23, 2018. Helen and Wayne are probably strolling and square dancing across heaven right now.
Helen was born in Hillsville, Va., on January 13, 1929. She was also preceded in death by her parents Raymond and Cornelia Hall, her sisters Louise Huff and Bernice Iroler and her brothers Douglas Hall, Wallace Hall and Larry Hall.
Over the years Helen worked at the Hillsville Hosiery Mill and Sprague Electric in Hillsville, Va. and Guynn’s Department Store and the Virginia Tech University Book Store in Blacksburg, Va. She enjoyed Square Dancing and liked to read, sew, knit, crochet, macramé, tole paint among other crafts. Helen was a charter member of the Hillsville (Disciples of Christ) Christian Church in Hillsville,Va. that was established in 1941. Last October she was recognized at the Hillsville Christian Church’s annual Homecoming as 1 of 2 living charter members. Helen was an active member of the Blacksburg Christian Church where she served as Deaconess and as a member of the Disciples Women Ministry. She also assisted her husband in creating presents for Mother’s Day, as well as Christmas gifts and candy filled Easter eggs for the children of the church. They became know as “Him” and “Her” by the children. Wedding and Baby Shower honorees received a basket made by Wayne filled with a hand knit wash cloth and strawberry/rhubarb jam home made by Helen along with a gift card. For 14 years she worked with the RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Programs) in various community efforts.
Surviving are her brother Charles N. Hall and wife Linda of Blacksburg Va., son Teddy Wayne Webb and wife Hettie of Radford, Va., daughter Vicki Robinson and husband Albert of Daleville, Va., three grandchildren, Sidna Allen Hopkins and wife Melissa of Canada, Krista Robinson of Daleville, Va., Miranda Webb Livermore and husband Art of Charleston, SC and six beloved great grandchildren.
We would like to thank Rev. Gary McCoy for his untiring love, care and support for both Wayne and Helen and their family over the years, as well as the congregation of Blacksburg Christian Church for their many acts of kindness. Heartfelt thanks to all the caregivers that came to the home to help Helen, Dr. Stuart Gardner and his staff for their tenderness in working with Helen, and the staff at Kroontje Health Care Center. And to Helen’s special roommate at Kroontje, Iris Cruise, for lovingly watching over her.
