Nancy Wilson-Webb was born on January 20, 1932 to Madison Wise Wilson and Mary Nancy (Haney) Pearson Wilson in Maypearl, Ellis County, Texas. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Abilene Christian University in 1953. In 1985 she earned her master’s degree in school administration from TCU. She began teaching in 1953 in Fort Worth ISD in music, art and social studies for gifted and talented students at Oakhurst Elementary, Westcliff Elementary and J.P. Moore Elementary. Nancy was appointed by Governor Ann Richards as her liaison to the Texas Adult Education Agency. Following her 47 years of service in the schools she continued her work with the Fort Worth Literacy Council, serving as chair for 20 years. Nancy was a lifelong member of the Church of Christ.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Mary and Madison Wilson, her husband John Crawford Webb and many beloved pets.
Nancy’s life’s work can perhaps be best defined in her dedication for excellence of quality literacy education. She had an equal passion for humane treatment for all of earth’s creatures.
