Carol Florence Webb
Carol F. Webb (Tighe) passed away peacefully on May 6, 2022. She was born May 10, 1936 missing her 86 birthday by only four days. Carol was the only child born to Arthur and Betty Tighe in Port Angeles, Washington.
While attending the University of Washington she married Benjamin Patten in 1955 and soon a first daughter was born, Laura, followed by a second daughter, Anna.
After working in Seattle area she moved to Richland, Washington to be closer to her parents after her divorce. As it so happened a very handsome man by the name of Joe Webb lived next door to her parents and they eventually married and had a son, Michael.
Carol was a very impressive artist who created many drawings, oil paintings, original needlework, quilts and ornate dolls. Art was her passion and she spent numerous hours drawing with her grandchildren
She suffered a stroke at the age of 57 which paralyzed the left side of her body. Fortunately she was right handed so she was able to continue creating her works of art.
She became an avid gardener, and sported a tan befitting a farmer. Her flower pots overflowed with roses, nasturtiums, and lilies which would attract her other love, birds, butterflies and even those darn squirrels that kept digging up her bulbs.
Before Carol’s stroke she loved to dance. She would listen to Dave Brubeck and dance around the living room, man could she move! After being paralyzed for 28 years we hoped she danced her way to heaven, enjoying a pain free body and the company of her beloved Joe.
She is preceded in death by her loving husband of 57 years, Joe B. Webb and her parents Arthur and Betty Tighe. She is survived by Laura McDonald (Virgil) Anna Vornbrock (Max), Michael Webb (Cindy), step-son Robert Webb ( Yvonne) and many grandchildren: Nick Vornbrook, Al Vornbrook, Chris Webb, McKenzie Webb, Miriah Webb and Savannah Webb.
Our family would like to thank the incredibility dedicated staff at Regency Canyon Lakes Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. Their kind, compassionate and loving care was extremely appreciated. Time after time they went beyond what was expected and in Carol’s final days they also took care of us, just as family would have, for that we are forever grateful.
I am very sorry for your loss. I loved Carol, I spent a lot of time with her as she helped me improve my drawing skills. She, and Joe, we’re the best neighbors for my grandma in her last years. Carol has a heart of gold and was such a treasure to know.
I knew Carol many years ago..in fact I think I helped her to meet Joe who lived behind us. I babysat a lot for Joe. Betty and Art were good neighbors of us too.. I have good memories of Carol, Joe and their kids..I used to run into Joe occasionally in grocery store.. he always had a smile when he saw me..I always asked about Carol.. thoughts and prayers to family..
