Nadine Elizabeth Flynt Webb
November 28, 1915 - November 27, 2016
Nadine Elizabeth Flynt Webb, 101, of Jacksonville, Florida passed away peacefully on November 27,
2016 at The Northeast Florida Community Hospice Center.
A private service will be held at a later date.
Nadine is survived by her children, Marlene (Pat) Hayes, Gary (Minta) Webb and Elizabeth Ann (Michael)
Daliberti, 8 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her oldest daughter
Donna Karen Garcia, mother of Joseph Garcia and Kathryn Garcia-Beavers.
Nadine was born in Savannah, Ga. on November 28, 1915 to Maggie Eva and Guy Carlton Flynt. She
was 6 years old when Guy moved the family to Jacksonville and eventually set up an auto painting shop at
the corner of Main and 16th Street. After living in several homes in the Riverside area, Guy and Uncle Bob
built the family home in Ortega on Hiawatha Street. Nadine and several other children in the neighborhood
rode the streetcar into town to attend the Seventh Day Adventist School on Roselle Street. Nadine
remained a lifelong, active member of the church. Her faith and love for the Lord was evident in everything
she did. Nadine's kind, gentle nature infused every one of her encounters. She took great joy in her friends,
family and cats.
During WWII, while working as a nurse at Hope Haven Children's Hospital, Nadine met and married
Grafton Byron Webb. After the war they made their home in several states all over the country before
settling in Texas and raising four children, Donna Karen, Marlene Elaine, Gary Grafton and Elizabeth
(Libby) Ann.
Upon retiring from nursing in 1972, Nadine returned to Jacksonville to care for her mother and older
brother, Carlton. She remained in Jacksonville until her death, tending to her beloved feline companions,
Sammy and Sissy along with an ever changing group of homeless and needy cats.
Nadine's home was a favored meeting place where countless birthdays, anniversaries and holidays were
celebrated. Everyone was family to her and you knew when you were there that she would give you the
very best of what she had, a listening ear, wise advice gleaned from her years of experience, true heartfelt
compassion and, so often, laughter. In her later years, she loved to just sit and visit and share stories, often
about her grandchildren and great grandchildren, their antics and victories.
Her gentle spirit and wise counsel will be missed more than words can tell.
The family wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude to The Northeast Florida Community Hospice Center
for their gentle care and support in her final days.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to First Coast No More Homeless Pets or Northeast
Florida Community Hospice.
