Katherine Ann McCarty left her earthy life and ascended to her heavenly home on Saturday, April 3, 2021, in Nacogdoches, Texas. She was born on December 15, 1944, in San Benito, Texas to John Campbell Webb and Lillian Marie Baugh Webb.
Ann grew up in Rio Hondo, Texas with her two siblings, Peggy and John. While in high school, Ann played guard on her basketball team. She also received the Bausch and Lomb Science Award for her outstanding academic abilities.
Ann met her dear husband, Robert Wayne McCarty, in San Benito, Texas and fell deeply in love. The two were married soon after on July 11, 1967. Over the next 53 years, they raised two beautiful children and created thousands of precious moments and memories to treasure. Ann was an avid gardener. She had her own vegetable stand for close to 30 years!
Ann was a steadfast woman of God with strong convictions. She was loyal to a fault; to not only her God, but also to others. Ann had a servant’s heart – where there was work to be done or help to be needed, Ann was there.
Ann is survived by her beloved husband, Robert Wayne McCarty; sons, Robert Wayne McCarty, Jr. and Brian Douglas McCarty and wife, Nicole; sister, Peggy Carol Bledsoe and husband, Gill; half-brother, Riley Edgar Webb and wife Jennifer; half-sister, Ruby Karla Webb, and grandchildren, Lane McCarty, Paige McCarty, and Maebh McCarty.
Ann is preceded in death by her brother, John Riley Webb; and parents, John Campbell Webb and Lillian Marie Baugh Webb.
