You never know where grace comes from...

Esther "Dot" Mondy Webb was born in Varnado, Louisiana, to Joshua and Essie Mondy, on January 22, 1936.

As a young child, Dot joined Mount Zion Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. B.B. Moses.

She graduated as Salutatorian from Wesley Ray High School in 1954. Dot attended Southern University and Clark College as an accounting major.

Soon after college her true inspiration came with the birth of her children, Brenda Lynnette Gray (1959), Paula Lynne Gray (1962), and Douglas Scott Cohen (1968).

When she joined Jackson Memorial Baptist Church, she met the love of her life Orell Edward Webb, also gaining the love of another daughter, Tracey Deanne Webb. They married 3 weeks after meeting on September 25, 1976.

During the 32 years of their marriage she served with him as First Lady as he ministered to members of First Missionary Baptist Church in Anniston, Alabama.

Esther began her Ray of Hope life in 2009. She served faithfully in the food and clothing ministry and later became a Deacon of the church.

She learned the importance of a "life of service" as she aided her mother by folding the sterilized white linens into the medical bag Essie used as a midwife to deliver over 500 children into the world.

She was taught her strong work ethic from her father Joshua who told her, while she worked in the fields, he wanted her to know how to work hard but hoped she would never have to.

She developed her graceful walk from planting corn in the narrow fields on the farm.

Dot always stated what she did wasn't special she was only doing what she was supposed to do.

She leaves to continue her legacy, three daughters, Brenda Lynnette Gray, Tracey Deanne Webb,  and Paula Lynne Ward: one son, Douglas Scott Cohen: three grandchildren, William Joshua Hicks, Simone Nicole Dollar and Nahkia M. Collins: two brothers, Freddie Smith (Willie Mae) and Pete Smith (Barbara) and a  host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

    A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds. No one can prepare you for a loss, it comes like a swift wind. However, take comfort in knowing that she is now resting in the arms of our Lord. Love you Brenda and our prayers are with you and your family. ~Teresa Ramos

    Since I met Aunt Dot in 1977 she has been a true example of strength, grace and beauty. A wonderful legacy to leave to her family and all who knew her. She will be missed but we know that she is with the Father and is happy to be with Him. Brenda, Paula and Doug know that I love you and am praying for you and all our family even though I cannot be there with you.

    To the family and friends of Mrs. Esther Webb, I am sending my sympathy and warm Christian love. It's so sad to lose a love in death, but soon God's kingdom will rule over mankind.(Matthew 6:10) Under that kingdom "no resident will say I am sick".(Isaiah 33:24) There will be no death, no tears(Revelation 21:3,4) we will be able to live forever here on earth "in the abundance of peace."(Psalms 37:11)

    Even though your hearts may be heavy with grief, please remember that our heavenly father also feels your pain of grief. Through his word the Bible he offers comfort to help you cope. Psalm 34:18 says; Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. Also the wonderful promise at Isaiah 25:8; He (God) will swallow up death forever. And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe the tears from all faces. Because God cares for you (1Peter 5:7) he will help you to cope at this difficult time. Please be assured also of my deepest sympathy.

    To The Webb Family, May you have peace and comfort during this most grievous time. The Bible speaks of death as an enemy. 1 Corinthians 15:26 refers to death as the, "last enemy." Almighty God is going to eliminate this enemy in the future. That same scripture says, it is going to be destroyed forever .What a wonderful future blessing when death is going forever. May you continue have peace and comfort during this most difficult time.

    I knew Mrs. Webb, affectionately called Queen Mother Esther Webb, for many years through Brenda, her oldest daughter. She was strong, beautiful, classy, and brave. She stayed on the battlefield until she completed her journey. Whenever life gets tough for me, I reflect on the lessons of Queen Mother Esther, and I am fortified.

    My deepest condolences in the loss of Esther. It is surely a very difficult time for all who knew her well. May the words of Psalms 46:1 bring you some comfort. It reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." Yes, our great God cares for us and also has made the sure promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise!(Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11,29). What Joy to welcome back Esther and other loved ones who have fallen asleep in death! This is a SURE promise for Isaiah 55:11 tell us that everything God says he accomplishes without fail! Please go online to jw.org and find out more about this grand hope of the resurrection.

    May God bless you with peace,comfort, and strength to endure the days ahead. Psalm 34:18 tells us that “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

    My deepest sympathy goes out to your family.  But do not despair. Acts 24:15 says "there is going to be a resurrection". We will be able to see our loved ones again on a restored earth. (Psalm 37:11, 29) May you trust in Almighty God to comfort you until that time. (Psalm 83:18; Prov. 3:5, 6) He is the Source of our help. (Ps. 121:1, 2)
