Obituary

Most people live the mantra of Faith, Family and Friends but for Regina Roberta Webb, she lived an additional principle …

Faith                Family             Friends            and Fashion

Born as Regina Roberta Neal, known to some as Regaina, to family as Aunt Nea/Neea to siblings as Gina, to the faith family as Sista Webb, whatever name was spoken she always answered when called upon.

Born March 21,1940 in Greenwood, Florida to Hallie Sallie Cooper and John David Neal. Regina was one in a family unit of 7 siblings: the eldest Dorothy, followed by Robert, Fannie, Willie, John Jr, and the youngest Esther.  Regina attended Union Grove School in Greenwood, Florida until the family relocated to Brooklyn, New York.  She later graduated from Girls High School class of ’59’ and then attended Pace University to study Business Administration.

On September 30, 1961 she entered holy matrimony with Clarance Webb of New Bern, North Carolina.  They met in Brooklyn (Bedford Stuyvesant) as she was walking down the street early one evening and caught the eye and attention of Clarance. The young couple set up house and started a family on Lincoln Place.

Regina’s professional career started with Vogue Magazine as a Junior Illustrator. She could draw and illustrate splendidly and had an innate eye for style and design.  She resigned from Vogue Magazine and joined AT&T in search of greater opportunity and higher wages. She became a telephone operator and vividly remembers fielding calls during the Bay of Pigs crisis in 1961.  She subsequently took employment with PaineWebber Inc. and later retired in 2004 as a Vice President in Finance from the United Bank of Switzerland (UBS).

Regina’s list of favorites:

Favorite hobby – church & worship

Favorite past time – church & service (especially ushering)

Favorite song – any church gospel rendition

Favorite hang-out – church

Well, you get the picture….

Regina was a member of the Eastern Star Sarah Chapter of Brooklyn where she and her mother Hallie were active members and worked diligently to serve her community with a heavy emphasis on God.

She pursued excellence in all things she undertook…but honestly there were 2 areas where Regina was challenged. While she was open to operate in many areas within the church, she was warned and prohibited from a particular one. She dabbled in Sunday school, bible study, church trustee, usher board, missionary, but NEVER, EVER was encouraged nor accepted to sing in the CHOIR in spite of her desire.  She loved music however the gift of singing was not her calling.  She often said, “I couldn’t carry a tune if it was tied on my back”.

Now for the second one…she enjoyed a delicious meal, preferably one that had a pork chop and a dessert (she had a sweet tooth like her momma Hallie) and found it hard to resist a piece of cheese.  Although she enjoyed a delicious meal it took a minute, well actually some years, probably more like decades to develop her culinary talents.  When they say “my mom could burn those pots” well that is literally what Regina did for years, she burnt her pots.  It was a rough start but over many decades and with pure determination, she improved her cooking and mastered her signature dish spaghetti and meatballs which she learned from her Italian teacher in her High School cooking class.

Regina’s beloved attributes:

Prayer warrior

Faithful

Loyal

Respectful

Generous

Considerate

Funny

Intelligent

Curious

Organized

Opinionated!!! (whether you liked it or not)

Regina was all of those things and in perfect synchronization with her faith.

Regina is survived by 2 sons, Clarance Jr. and Keith; 3 grandchildren, Brittany, Briana, and Keith Jr; 4 great grands, Brandon, Bella Rose, Amora, and Mia; two sisters Dorothy and Esther, a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins too numerous to mention and countless friends and associates.

We will all see her again as Regina would say “If the Lord’s willing ‘n’ the creek don’t rise”…

When that day comes and the trumpet sounds…

Dressed in white she’ll be there to welcome and usher us in through the pearly gates.

Rest in Peace and Victory!

    Uncle Clarence, Keith and Webbie, We were so sadden to hear of Aunt Regina's passing. We have a lot of fond memories of her making our summer vacations a treasured memory. Johnnie will never forget the steak and potato meal that she made for him when he visited your home. We are praying for you guys knowing that earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. Deepest Sympathy!
    Johnnie, Brenda and OJ

    Aunt Regina left this life so suddenly that you are compelled to reflect on your own life and how often times, we take life, even each moment, for granted. If her life is to mean anything, live your tribute to her.
