First published in

TRIBUTES have been paid to a grandmother who was found dead at her home on Good Friday.  

Wiltshire Police have confirmed that Doreen Webb, aged 64, was found at her house in Durrington.

In a statement, friends and family said: “It is with great sadness, shock and numbness that we find ourselves standing here in this position today.

“On Friday 18th of April, under the most tragic circumstances, our mother and nanny was taken away from us.

“There are few words to describe her as a person; she was simply the best in every way.

“She raised three challenging boys, quite often on her own, due to our father's army commitments that took him away for long periods.

“She brought up a grandson from a very early age, was also instrumental in the upbringing of a granddaughter and was an integral part of all of our lives.

“She was the most amazing person in every single way.

“They were happily married for over 44 years and shared so many precious moments together, travelling the world and being around for their family.

“We are all still trying to deal with, and understand, this situation.

“We do not know if we will ever get the answers we need about what caused this tragic event last Friday, but whilst we are searching for these answers we ask you to respect our privacy and allow us to mourn as a family.

“We would also like to give thanks to the medical team that attended the incident.”

Leonard Webb, aged 68, has been charged with the murder of Doreen and appeared at Winchester Crown Court on Wednesday, 23 April.
