Graveside funeral services for Jerry Ray “Web” Webster, 74, of Collinsville, Okla., were held Wednesday, January 6, 2021 at Hillside Cemetery in Purcell. Services were under the direction of the Wilson-Little Funeral Home in Purcell.
Mr. Webster passed away Friday, January 1, 2021 at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa.
Jerry was born on June 22, 1946, in Purcell, Okla. He was the youngest of 11 children of Clovis Webster and Mary Thelma (Lee) Webster. Jerry grew up in Purcell and attended Purcell Schools. Jerry later moved to the Tulsa area where he lived and worked the last 45+ years.
Jerry was very lighthearted and easy to talk to. He always had a smile and a story, which made him the professional salesperson he was for his entire career. The highlight of that career being the cabinet business with older brother, Jimmy.
Jerry enjoyed tinkering with wood and loved working on projects around the house and yard. He would be described by those that knew him as kind and loving, and always a dreamer. He wanted what was best for those around him and wanted nothing more than to be surrounded by the ones he loved. He will be greatly missed by his family.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Clovis and Thelma Webster; five brothers, John, J. B., Dale, William and Jimmy; and three sisters, Debra Kay Webster, Mary Schacher and Lona Faye Deal.
He is survived by two children, Robin Shehada and husband, Ali, of Broken Arrow, Okla., and Jeff Webster and wife, Lorrie, of Ponca City, Okla., his loving companion, Pat Rutherford, of the home in Collinsville, Okla., and her family of 35 years, Vickie and Greg McDonald of Kansas City, Kan., Rhonda Rutherford of Shell Knob, Mo., Steve and Teresa Rutherford of Inola, Okla., and Scott and Kathy Rutherford of Owasso, Okla.; one brother, Joe Webster of Bixby, Okla.; one sister, Patsy Gragg of Midwest City, Okla. He is also survived by 15 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, many nieces, nephews, and cousins; along with former spouse and mother of their children, Willene Higgins McKee of Broken Arrow.
