Additional Information Posted:
"Irma Lea Nunn-Webb, 99 years of age, passed away peacefully at her home in Bluefield, VA on August 20, 2020. Irma was a modern day renaissance woman. After completing a12 year high school program in 10 years, she started her career as storekeeper for Pocahontas Fuel Company. She subsequently became a qualified nurse but decided nursing was not her life’s calling. Instead, World War II was going on and she joined the Navy where she achieved a First Class Storekeeper Rank. She was the leading Class Petty Officer in her division. After marrying Nathan Webb in 1948, Irma began a new career as a mother and business owner when they started a television sales and repair shop.

'Irma then pursued a teaching degree in Elementary Education at Bluefield State College. Her plan was to write children’s literature and books, but after graduating in 1965, she accepted a teaching position at Pocahontas Elementary School in VA. As they say, “the rest is history”. Irma was bitten by the teaching bug. She taught for 6 years before becoming a principal at Falls Church and subsequently a supervising principal. Irma earned her Masters Degree from East Tennessee State University. She published many articles and wrote several educational curricula and was very proud to have run a GED program for a number of years.

"Irma was born during the Great Depression on January 2, 1921 in Switchback, McDowell County, WV to a coalminer, Wilson Albert Nunn (1889-1968) and Alice Roxanne Shaw-Nunn (1901-1993). She is predeceased by four siblings, Joseph Nunn (Deceased), Woodrow W. Nunn (1924-2012), Minnie Nunn-Poff (Deceased), and Margie Nunn-Pruett (Deceased).

"Irma is survived by her daughter, Sara Webb-O’Neal of Milledgeville, GA; sons, Steve Webb & wife Sukyo Webb of Warrenton VA, Marvin Webb & wife Vdernelle Webb of Milledgeville, GA; and Timothy Webb of KY; four grandchildren, Alex Webb of WV, Jo Ann O'Connor & husband Ryan O’Connor of El Paso TX, Calvin Webb of Bluefield, VA and Alexandria Webb; great grandchildren, Travis Webb & wife Sarah Webb, Matthew Webb, Meredith Hill, Payton Hill, Colin O’Connor and Claire O’Connor; and two great-great grand children, Riley Webb and Evian Webb.

"No public service is planned."
