RAMONA MOZINGO WEBB
WENDELL, NC - Ramona Mozingo Webb, passed away at her residence on Tuesday, April 18, 2017. She was born on February 11, 1935 in Greene County, Snow Hill, NC and was preceded in death by her precious mother, Fannie Mozingo Dennis and beloved husband, Marvin Earl Webb. She was a graduate of Tarboro High School, Tarboro, NC and also studied Business and Computer Graphic Design at the College of the Albemarle, Manteo, NC. She also received a Certificate of Academic Excellence in Communications and Supervision and attained a North Carolina Association of Educational Office.
After a 37-year career, Ramona retired in 2000 with the Dare County Board of Education as Facilitator for the N.C. Information Highway (BellSouth) and Coordinator of SHARE TV (Dare County Schools’ Local Television Channel). In prior years, other work areas included Administrative Assistant in the Physiology Department and Human Research Committee with the East Carolina University School of Medicine, Greenville, NC; Administrative Assistant to the President and Vice President of Health Education Foundation in Tarboro (now Wilson), NC and also a legal secretary for several years. She also served as a Town Commissioner for the Town of Conetoe; Special Events Co-Chairman for the American Cancer Society in Tarboro, NC; Corresponding Secretary for the Kill Devil Hills Taxpayers’ Association; and a Volunteer for the “Blood Drive” at Outer Banks Presbyterian Church, Kill Devil Hills, N.C.
Earlier years, Ms. Webb was a member of the Conetoe United Methodist Church, Conetoe, NC and joyfully served as pianist/organist for approximately 20 years. Playing piano/organ (including a Pipe Organ), singing, being creative with computer technology, and sewing were a few of her many talents. In 1988, she relocated to the Outer Banks and joined the Outer Banks Presbyterian Church and its Sanctuary Choir and also created display posters for special events. Upon moving to Wendell, NC in 2009, she transferred her membership to Covenant Presbyterian Church in Wendell and, soon thereafter, joined its Chancel Choir for a couple of years.
Later in life, she was blessed to fall in love and marry Marvin Earl Webb whom she called the “sweetest man I’ve ever known.” They were married in 1988 at the Outer Banks Presbyterian Church and was blessed to have enjoyed over 20 happy, blissful years at the beach including many delightful boating outings on their 20' Proline boat named, “Miss Ramona.”
By a former marriage, Ms. Webb is survived by one son, Marvin Terry Roberson of Farmville, NC; three granddaughters: Kimberly R. Morris and husband Donnie of Wendell, NC; Terri R. Little and husband, Mickey of Knightdale, NC; and Grace R. Linthicum and husband, Curtis of Greensboro, NC; three great-grandsons: Kimball, Noah and Lukas Morris and three great-granddaughters: Taylor and Trista Pope and Emerson Morris ~ all whom she loved, dearly. Also surviving are many special cousins. As a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, she will be remembered by her family, friends and colleagues for her ever-present smile, contagious laughter and energetic personality.
Also surviving are two step-daughters, Donna Webb Conroy and Joy Webb Norris; and four step-grandchildren: Mary and Danny Conroy and Meghan and Danielle Norris.
