Sally Gibson Webb, 79, was called to her Heavenly home on Friday, February 16, 2024 after a long road of living with the challenges of dementia.

Sally was born on August 31, 1944, the second of four children born to James and Frances Gibson of Temple, Texas. Having a rich childhood under the care and love of family including some very special aunts in her life, she left Temple to pursue her bachelor’s degree at Texas Tech University. While at Tech, she pledged Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority where she forged friendships with some lifelong sisters and friends. After college, Sally moved to Dallas and while working as an elementary school teacher at R. E. Good in Carrollton, she met the neighbor from upstairs, John “Johnny” Webb, who became the love of her life. They married on December 23, 1967, and were overjoyed to have sons Kevin and Chris complete their family. In 1978 they moved to Lake Highlands and the home that would serve the family for the next 25 years. Sally was an active member of the community, contributing by substitute teaching, leading scout troops and performing all the tasks involved in support of her children’s very active lives. As the boys moved into high school, she rejoined the workforce as an advertising salesperson for the technology magazine “Mainframe Journal”.

Sally and Johnny had a loving and joyful marriage and were great partners in their activities together. They were faithful members of Dallas’ First United Methodist Church for decades where they acted as leaders of the Double Aires Sunday school class. With great dedication they served countless hours at Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital earning them recognition as outstanding volunteers.

Sally was proceeded in death by her husband Johnny and brothers Jay and Bill. She is survived by her sons Kevin Webb and wife Steffanie, Chris Webb and wife Rainey and her sister Jean Karr and husband Bob. She was most proud of her role was as “Monny” to her five grandchildren Christopher, Kathryn, Gibson, Gabby and Nicholas Webb.

Memories Timeline

Guestbook

  1. I remember sitting on the ground at Old City Park with Sally and members of the Doubl-Aires Class. Johnny and three other members of the class serenaded us with a wonderful Barber Shop Quartet. We almost choked on the fried chicken the church provided; we laughed so hard when the quartet cornered us with their songs. Sally and Johnny loved to laugh and really enjoyed life to the fullest.

  2. I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Sally, but her son Chris is married to my cousin Rainey. I can only imagine what kind of wonderful person raised such a wonderful son! Sorry for your loss, but know she is experiencing things we can only dream about!

  3. I have been a friend of Sally since we were in junior high school in Temple. The last time I saw her was at our 50th class reunion. We graduated together from Temple High School in 1962. She was always fun and kind. Everyone loved her. I am absolutely sure that Sally shared her wonderful nature everywhere she happened to be. Condolences to her family.

  4. Words are almost impossible for someone who has been your friend since the 6th grade. She was fun, happy , strong , loved fiercely & was responsible for leaving many irreplaceable memories that make me laugh. Fly free ! You & Sue save us a good table

  5. I first met Sally Gibson Webb when I was a freshman in college at Texas Tech in 1963. She had transferred as a sophomore from Temple Junior College, and we were each new students at Texas Tech. She was going through rush, and I was, too. Our mothers met at that time in the Student Union where there was a reception for parents. That evening we went to an orientation for rush and I met Sally as a fellow rushee that evening. We went to parties that week for rushees, and I soon learned that Sally was one of my fellow rushees in my group. We became instant friends, pledged Kappa Kappa Gamma together and remained friends for the next four years at Texas Tech. When I married Eldon Frost and moved to Farmer’s Branch, I soon learned that Sally also lived in that part of Dallas. We became Farmer’s Branch friends, and eventually our children played together in the park and in each others’ homes where we often babysat with each other’s children. Ours was a friendship made in Heaven, and it was a friendship of a lifetime for which I will be forever grateful. Julie and Kevin Webb were the same age and often played together as toddlers, and our Laura and Christopher were almost the same age. We used the same Mothers’ Day Out in Farmer’s Branch/Carrollton and attended birthday parties for each of our children, and often took them to MacDonalds and to the park to play. I sincerely hope that Kevin and Christopher will keep up with the Frost family some. I would be so disappointed if we lost touch. May Peace Be With Each of You in the loss of your dear mother, my friend!
    Sincerely,

  6. Chris and Kevin, and all of your families, we were so sad to hear of Sally’s passing. She is in a better place. She was always so proud of you boys, and so loved wives and Grandkids! I know she will be missed. Unfortunately I have a case of pneumonia, and Noel is also under the weather. We are so disappointed to miss the service, it we would t dare come and possibly infect anyone. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love, Dorothy and Noel
