Patricia Ilene (Clifton) Webb

NORMAN — Patricia Ilene (Clifton) Webb, 57, died Tuesday, July 17, 2012, at her home in Norman after a long and valiant battle with cancer. She passed peacefully, surrounded by her family.

The family is hosting a celebration service at 4 pm Saturday at Wildwood Community Church, 1501 24th Ave. NE, in Norman.

Patricia shone like a thousand watt bulb in life. She loved her family and her dogs and lived every day with great passion. She told riveting stories and gave great advice at just the right time. However, her family will remember most fondly her amazing sense of humor, contagious laughter, and ability to find joy and light in everything around her.

A lifelong Oklahoman, Patricia was born Jan. 29, 1955, in Oklahoma City to M.G. and Rilda Clifton, who preceded her in death. She graduated from Mustang High School in 1973. She had three sons with her first husband: Adam in 1975, Nicholas in 1979, and Michael in 1982.

Patricia met Gary Webb on the job at AT&T in Oklahoma City. The two married in 1988 and moved to Norman. Patricia welcomed Makila Webb, Gary's daughter, into the family.

Patricia graduated in 1997 from the University of Oklahoma with a Management Information Systems degree, which led to a successful career in Information Technology.

In later years she attended Wildwood Community Church and showed great faith in Jesus Christ.

Patricia loved dogs and was never without at least one canine companion. She especially had a heart for rescued and rehabilitated dogs.

Patricia's legacy is a strong family blessed with great memories and with the wisdom of her rich experiences: loving husband, Gary Webb; children, Adam Key and wife Leigh, Nicholas Key and wife Rebekah, daughter, Makila Fields and husband Jay, and Michael Key; four grandchildren, Elizabeth, Aiden, Landen, and Kinsey Key; sister, Mary Clifton and husband Rob De Loof; brother, Paul Clifton and wife Debbie; mother-in-law, Nelda Webb; and her faithful canine friends Murphy, Penny, and Rose. Patricia was also loved and respected by her large extended family and many, many friends.

The family would like to thank the healthcare professionals who treated and supported her through her illness. Patricia spoke often about her appreciation for the thorough and thoughtful care she received.

Memorial contributions can be made to Second Chance Animal Shelter in Norman at Second Chance Animal Sanctuary, Inc., PO Box 1266, Norman, OK 73070 or

Flowers and cards may be sent to Wildwood Community Church.
