September 23, 1919 - January 9, 2016
Irena Beth Richardson Webb, 96, returned to her heavenly home on January 9, 2016, in Provo, Utah. Beth was born September 23, 1919, to Edmund A. Richardson and Ivie Romney in Thatcher, Arizona. She was raised in Arizona and moved to Utah her senior year of high school. She was a very accomplished musician. She was an organist in every auxiliary in the LDS Church, including Priesthood. Her first calling as an organist came while she was still in Primary. She loved serving as an organist her entire life. She shared her love of music with her children. Beth majored in English and minored in modern languages at Brigham Young University, then went on to receive a bachelor’s of science in Library Sciences (considered equivalent to a Masters) from the University of Denver. She had a long career at the BYU Library as the Humanities and Arts Librarian, specializing in Music and Arts. Beth married her eternal companion, Francis “Frank” Adelbert Webb, on May 29, 1952, in the LDS Salt Lake Temple. They raised their four children in California and Utah. Beth is survived by her children, Peggy Haynes, Spanish Fork; Sheri (Gary) McMurtrey, Bayfield, CO; Marilyn Webb, Provo; and Kenneth (Lori) Webb, Orem; 26 grandchildren, and 22 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, her six brothers and sisters, and her parents. The family expresses their thanks to the personnel of Hearts for Home Health, Aspen Senior Center, Horizon Home Health and Hospice, Aspen Senior Care, and Legacy Village of Provo for the loving care they provided for our mother during her declining years.
