Obituary for LAVINIA ELMA (HURLEY) WEBB
Lavinia Elma Hurley Webb was born December 4, 1951 to the late Vernon and Margaret Willett Hurley in Prince Frederick, MD. She departed this life on July 22, 2017 in Timonium, MD.
Lavinia grew up in Prince Frederick MD along with her six siblings; she was the youngest of the sisters. Lavinia attended Calvert County Public Schools and graduated from Calvert High School in 1969. After graduation Lavinia went on to work as a clerk for the F.B.I. in Washington DC until she reached full retirement with the federal government. It was during this time that Lavinia also moved to Baltimore MD where she met and married Gordon Lee Webb on May 21, 1980. After her retirement from the F.B.I., Lavinia then went on to work for the United States Postal Service as a mailroom assistant for a number of years, followed by the Circuit Court for Baltimore County. Lavinia worked as a clerk at the courthouse until she became ill in 2014.
Lavinia, also lovingly known to many as Poogie, was a kind and gentle person who loved her family and friends. She loved all her brothers and sisters, but especially dotted on Eric and Victor when they were young.
Lavinia made a point of ensuring that she kept in touch with her family and often made weekly phone calls to check in on everyone and share family news.
Some of Lavinia's hobbies included listening to old Motown music, shopping, traveling and playing GUTS!! She of course also loved all of the family get togethers. Lavinia would spend hours shopping, not only buying things for herself, but also for her family and friends. She traveled to such great destinations as New Orleans, Niagara Falls Canada, Las Vegas, Hollywood California, Florida, the Bahamas, Denver, and countless more places! Her photo books document the many new experiences, laughs, good times, and new people she encountered along her travels. Lavinia was also known for maintaining a huge inventory of the most stylish and sometimes unusual big earrings and hats. She wore big earrings well before they became a trend!
Lavinia was preceded in death by her mother, Margaret Willett Hurley, and father, Vernon Hurley. She leaves behind to cherish her memory: Husband, Gordon Lee Webb; daughter, Wanda Webb Oakman (Anthony); and granddaughter, Samari Oglesby of Baltimore; four brothers, Leroy (Gloria) and Victor (Lorraine) Hurley of Delaware, Eric Hurley of Catonsville, and Vincent Hurley of Prince Frederick; two sisters, Gertrude (Herman) Grate of South Carolina, and Frances Blackwell of Prince Frederick; four special aunts, Elizabeth, Gertrude, Loretta, and Estella; and a huge host of adored nieces, nephews, friends, and other relatives.
