Today we are celebrating a beautiful life which has wonderfully    impacted many other lives. On December 19, 1918, in Allensville,        Kentucky, God blessed her parents with a precious baby girl, Almeta      Phillips Webster.  Her mother,  Edith, died when she was only 6 years old. As a result, she was raised in Bowling Green, Kentucky by a cousin, and aunt.
Early on, it became evident that Almeta was a special child.  She was endowed with a tremendous capacity to care and share, a warm smile and welcoming personality.
Almeta received her formal educational training at State Street School in Bowling Green.  Subsequently, she worked in the Indianapolis cleaning industry  for forty-one years and retired in 1983.
  Her life spiritual journey began at Seventh Street Baptist Church, when she dedicated her life to our Lord.  After moving to Indianapolis in 1942, she continued to honor her strong spiritual foundation by serving in many capacities, including:
Pastor's Wife, Sunday School Teacher, Choir Member and Steward.  In the last years, her greatest joy and love was Noon Day Bible Study at church.
Her strong love for the Lord and dedication to his worship          continued to her last  days.  Though, she couldn't talk, due to her            tracheotomy, she would lift her arms and move her head to worship music playing in her room.
"Aunt Pete," as she was affectionately called by relatives and many friends,  was a spiritual, loving, caring and praying woman, who lovingly opened her home and heart to those who needed her.  Her generosity     extended beyond her family and friends, as she invested countless hours ministering to the elderly and anyone in need.
Although Aunt Pete had a sweet, endearing disposition, she didn't hesitate to hold her tongue when telling you what she thought was the truth.
Almeta truly knew who she was and Whose she was.  She leaves to treasure her memory and to praise our Lord for lending her to them, one daughter, Palmeta Merritt-Rent (by first marriage), son Billy A. Rent; a nephew/son, James A. (Cynthia) Fountain;  nephews, Ronald (Connie) Webster, Steven (Yolanda) Bradford;  nieces , Brenda Colette (Lee) Bridgewater;  Shellye Bradford; Lisa (John) Mack, Gail (Lamont) Thompson; other nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews; and step-grandchildren.

I worked with Almeta back in the late 70's at Tuchman's clleaners's old main plant. She was such a fine lady and very good co worker. May God bless her soul.
