Jeanette Webb

October 24, 1937 — December 11, 2022

On Sunday morning, December 11, 2022, Jeanette Wilson Holmes Russel Webb (Jan) , loving mother, grandmother and friend passed away at the age of 85.

Jeanette was born on October 24, 1937 in Glasgow, Scotland to James Muir Russell and Mary Niellie Russell.

She had many fond memories of her early career working with a traveling vaudeville/ comedy show throughout Europe. She moved to the United States in her early twenties where she met her husband Charles Malcom Webb at a church dance in Arizona. They were married in the Manti Temple and raised six children, two sons Charlie and David and four daughters Fiona, Heather, Jeanette (Jinty) and Barbara. They were later divorced.

Jan had a passion for theatre, dance and the performing arts. She was a member of the BYU International Folk Dance and Ensemble while she was attending BYU. She later taught Highland Dance (The White Heather Dancers) where she was known at the Scottish Highland Games as the "Mother of Highland Dancing" for the state of Utah. She also enjoyed performing and choreographing in local community theatre for many years.

She spent many years working in social services for the state of Utah in women's shelters and youth homes.

She will be remembered by many as the feisty little Scottish woman whose favorite expression was "Bloody Hell."

Jan was preceded in death by a daughter Fiona Webb and her ex-husband. She is survived by her five children, thirteen grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren.
