William Wayne Webster

William Wayne Webster passed peacefully away on Jan. 15, 2019, at Pacifica Senior Living in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. “Bill” was born on Feb. 10, 1930, to Barbara and Thomas Webster in Tacoma, Wash.

Bill graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, with a law degree. At the university, Bill met his wife, Diana “Dea” Schade Webster. Bill and Dea were married in 1955, and they moved to Benton, Ark., where Bill was employed by ALCOA and was a member of the National Guard.

Bill worked in personnel for ALCOA and was transferred every three years to ALCOA plants across the country. He ended his 30-year career with ALCOA at their headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pa.

After retiring, Bill and Dea moved to Sterling, Va., to be closer to their daughter, Vicky Webster Rosser, and her family. When Dea passed away in 2015, Bill came to Coeur d’Alene to be closer to his daughter, Kathy Webster Cooper, and her family.

Bill was preceded in death by his wife, Dea; his daughter; Vicky; his siblings, Tom, Reigh and Barbara; and his parents, Thomas C. and Barbara Webster.

He is survived by his daughter, Kathy (Phil) Cooper; son, David Webster; son-in-law, Rich Rosser and grandchildren, Dan Cooper, Mike Cooper, Ben Cooper, Cassie Rosser and Drew (Monica) Rosser.

The family would like to thank all the special caregivers at Pacifica, Creekside and the Renaissance, who bought warmth and care to Bill. As he would often say, “You are precious!”

A celebration of life will take place this summer at Priest Lake.
