Alma Webb Lee Obituary

Mrs. Alma Walton Webb Lee, born July 5, 1928, in Beckley, West Virginia. A precious gift from the lord!
Alma was the 6 th child of (10) gifted to her mother, the late Stella A. King Walton and her father, the late
Shields B. Walton. Alma went home on November 18, 2022, after losing a courageous battle with
cancer.
Alma Webb Lee married her high school sweetheart, Vernon E. Webb, Sr. also known as Jimbo, in 1948.
Jimbo transitioned at the young age of 40 in 1967. From this union five children were born. At the age
of 69, after being a widow for 30 years, Alma married Arthur W. Lee, who transitioned one year later. In
addition, (8) siblings preceded her in death. She was the first of (10) children born in Beckley, WV,
where she attended Stratton High school. She worked at Richmond Dry Cleaners and did day work. Alma
and Jimbo moved to Pittsburgh, PA in 1950. They settled in Homewood in 1954, where she resided until
her transitioning.
Alma accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior at Central Street Baptist Church at an early age. Alma was a
member of the Central Street Choir singing alto while her father, Deacon Walton cheered her on. While
living in Pittsburgh she moved her membership to union Baptist Church under Pastor Campbell. Later
she moved her membership to Nazarene Baptist Church under Pastor Ricky V. Burgess where she
remained until she was called home to be with the Lord.
Alma enjoyed dancing, sewing, cooking, singing, the Pittsburgh Steelers and surprisingly the Steelers
nemesis, quarterback Tom Brady. She rarely missed a Steelers game and would complain if they didn’t
perform up to her Super Bowl standards. She believed in feeding anyone who came to her home hungry,
because it could be Jesus Christ. She loved her neighbors and all the children in the community. One
never knew who would be sitting at her table consuming a meal. She was a torch bearer during the
toughest times in Homewood and would welcome and provide refuge for any child that had lost a
parent or sibling to the streets. Mrs. Webb Lee was a woman small in stature, very quiet and attentive,
but she always saved space in her heart for anyone in need. Alma prayed and sang old hymns everyday
of her life. When anyone would stop by, she would have them join her. Her favorite hymns were
Amazing Grace and Just to Behold His Face
Alma would say the secret to longevity was to “love everyone”, which she did. She honored her mother
and father. She was a beloved wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great grandmother, neighbor and
friend.

Her children Janice Webb-Morris of Pittsburgh, PA; James C. Webb II (Amira) of Atlanta, GA; Vernon E.
