ObituaryShare A Memory

 Elma Marrion Webster, 93, died at her home surrounded by family on September 19, 2017. She is now cooking for the angels. Elma was born May 12, 1924 in Bowdle, South Dakota, the daughter of Anthony and Genevieve (Hoffert) Wentz. The family later moved to Yakima, where she attended school. She would later meet Dean Webster, and they were married October 30, 1950. They welcomed four children, Kerry, Kim, Kelli, and Kent. 

 
Elma was an avid cook and baker. She worked for serval restaurants in the Yakima area including The Restaurant at the Airport, The Thunderbird, and Frasu’s Deli. Cooking and baking were her passions; her specialties were German chocolate cake, and cabbage rolls. She volunteered much of her time to fund raise for charities and help wherever she could, including raising numerous foster children. Elma was an active member of both St. Paul’s Cathedral and Holy Redeemer Church, attending Mass every Sunday. 
 
Elma is survived by three children, Kerry (Laurie) Webster, Kim (Mary) Webster, and Kelli (Del) Horton, all of Yakima. She is also survived by three siblings, Leona Frick, Agnes Klampher and Kathy (Frank) Burt, as well as 10 grandchildren and 15 great- grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, Dean, her son, Kent, her brother, James, and her baby sister, Alice. 
 
The family would like to thank the numerous caregivers who assisted in her care: Elizabeth, Carmen, Lacie, Sherri, Rebecca, and especially Lucia, who we all love and adore. We would also like to thank Memorial Hospice, Maggie, Jo Ann, and Pastor Dan just to name a few. Also, Yvonne Schnellbach, who will always be part of our family. We love you mom. You will live in our hearts forever.
 
 A Celebration of Life will be held to honor her life on Saturday, September 30, 2017 from 4-6 p.m. at Harman Senior Center (101 N. 65th Ave., Yakima, WA 98908).
