MARY “JOYCE” WEBSTER (nee Dant) age 89, beloved wife for 55 years of the late Charles Linsley Webster; loving mother of Mary Virginia Budzik (husband Thomas), Charles Linsley, Jr. (wife Joan) and Edwin Dant (wife Noreen) Webster; devoted grandmother of Sarah Webster, Margaret Bates (husband Allen), and Julianne Budzik; great-grandmother of Nathan and Odin; cherished daughter of the late John Edwin and Mary Virginia (nee Ferg) Dant; and dearest sister of the late David Dant (wife Wanda).
Joyce was born on February 12, 1934, in Louisville, Kentucky and grew up in Dant Kentucky. After graduating from Catholic Boarding School, she continued her education in nursing. A woman of intelligence and drive, she proudly worked as a surgical nurse. Joyce was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She cared for her grandchildren while they were young and her husband during his time of need. Joyce volunteered many hours at the Cleveland Clinic. She had many hobbies; her favorite was gardening. She looked forward to the warm months in Ohio when she could tend to her flowers. She played the piano and attended the Orchestra with her friends. Joyce made pottery and needle work. Though she seemed to always have something going on she managed to take time to enjoy an Indians game and a great laugh with family and friends. Hearts fell heavy on February 20, 2023, when Joyce was called to rest with family by her side.

Beth Corthell and Felicia Sauder
Dearest Family of Joyce –
Felicia and I are deeply saddened by the immeasurable loss of your sweetest, kindest mother and grandmother. Joyce was the epitome of strength, lovingly and devotedly shown during the many years she cared for her dearest husband. Your care for her has been exemplary as well, and there can be no regrets. A beautiful soul and golden heart has now gained her own Heaven, so richly deserved. How all of you and those of us honored to have known her shining spirit shall miss her presence here; she will never leave you, though, and we are certain you feel her near you, still. Sending you Love, and Peace for your own dear hearts…
