Joan (Jo) Webb, Age 94, formerly of Eau Claire, Wi went on her “heavenly vacation” on October 19, 2021. Jo was born August 10, 1927 to William & Ethel (Dukelow) Greenwald in Chippewa Falls, WI. She graduated from the Chippewa High School in 1945. She also attended nurses training at Luther Hospital in Eau Claire. Jo married Harry James (Jim) Webb on August 27, 1949 in Chippewa Falls, WI. In 1957 they moved to Eau Claire with their family.
She was a member of Lake Street United Methodist Church, volunteered at Mt. Washington Center of Care beginning in 1967 and went to Dove Healthcare when Mt. Washington closed for many years. She also volunteered at the Red Cross blood banks and personally donated 10 gallons of blood over the years. In November of 1966 she started doing demo work for Coca Cola at Kerms and Dukes grocery stores. After a few years she started doing the same demo work in many local grocery stores for other products and eventually worked just for Dukes Supermarket, which was sold to Copp’s Finer Food Store on Hamilton Ave.
