June 23, 1932–Sept. 13, 2020
Wilma “Pickle” Hackworth Webb was called home to be with her Lord and Savior early Sunday morning after an extended illness.
Wilma was born June 23, 1932 in Ironton. She was the daughter of the late Dorothy Mae Hackworth and Charles Phillip Hackworth.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years, Homer Edward Webb; with whom she owned and operated Webb’s Machine Shop for over 30 years.
As a child, Wilma was given the nickname “Pickle” by her brothers and sisters and it stayed with her throughout her life.
Wilma was a graduate of Kitts Hill High School and a member of New Valley Missionary Baptist Church.
In addition to her husband she was preceded by four brothers and two sisters; Jack, who died in childhood, Jewell, Frank, Henry (Buster) Hackworth, Phyllis “Ruth” Winters and Gladys “June” Brewer.
She is survived by one special sister, Marion Geraldine “Jerry” Hankins.
Wilma also leaves behind seven children; Gail Darlene Sanders (Tim), Beverly Mae Ray (Johnnie), Kenneth Edward Webb, Kathi Anne McFarland (Rick Lawless), Nancy June Cales, Dwayne Clifford Webb (Kathy) and Phillip David Webb.
Wilma is also survived by 12 grandchildren; Kevin Smith, Garrett Haynes, Honette Rivers, Kelli Cox, Jennifer Webb, Brittany Bryant, Ian McFarland, Jason Cales, Amy Lewis, Jonathan Webb, Anthony Webb and Kendall Webb. Wilma also had 16 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews all who loved her dearly.
The best way to describe Wilma is that she had a BIG heart and just loved people.
It’s so unfortunate that this new virus prevents us from gathering to pay our last respects, because a small, private service just doesn’t do her justice. She was truly one of a kind; the world has lost one of its’ dearest souls.
Due to current restrictions on social gatherings the family chose not to have visitation.
A graveside service was held at Woodland Cemetery, officiated by Dr. Kevin Willis.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to the American Cancer Society American Cancer Society P.O. Box 22478 Oklahoma City OK 73123 in Wilma’s memory.
O’Keefe-Baker Funeral Home handled the services.
Dallas Forrest Carmon, 84, of Ironton, died on Sunday, Sept. 13, 2020 at Best Care Nursing Home in Wheelersburg.
Funeral services will be 3 p.m. Saturday, at Phillips Funeral Home, 1004 S. Seventh St., Ironton, with Pastor Darren Spainhower officiating. Visitation will be 2 p.m. until the time of the service.
