Michael Paul Webster, 75, departed this life on August 9th, 2023, surrounded by his loving wife, Nan Malooley Webster, and their family, after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He was born on July 12th, 1948 in Terre Haute to Kenneth Paul Webster and Patricia Ann McNamara Webster. A lifelong resident of Terre Haute prior to retirement, Mike graduated from Gerstmeyer Tech High School in 1966 where he formed friendships that lasted his lifetime. After high school, Mike enrolled at Indiana State University to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Education until his education was interrupted by his service to our Country. Mike served our country in the United States Army as an Infantry Soldier in the 101st Airborne while stationed in Phu Bai, Vietnam. After returning home from Vietnam in 1971, Mike returned to Indiana State and completed his degree. He immediately began teaching U.S. History and Economics at Casey High School from 1972 through 1978 where he also found satisfaction in coaching football and basketball. While teaching, Mike returned to ISU and obtained his Master’s Degree in Education. In 1978, Mike made a career change and transitioned into banking as a loan officer at The Bank of Casey through 1985 when he was tapped by First Financial Bank. Mike’s smile and personality helped him enjoy a 25 year relationship with First Financial Bank during which time he built lasting relationships with his co-workers and the community prior to retiring as their Vice-President of Consumer Lending. Mike had the ability to form relationships in every aspect of his life and his lifelong memberships in the VFW and the Elks Lodge was no exception. After their respective retirements, Mike and Nan made their home in The Villages, Florida, where the two of them formed even more friendships as Mike was able to chase his love of golf on a daily basis, before they recently returned to Indiana.
Mike was preceded in death by his parents. In addition to his devoted wife of 28 years, Roseanna (Nan) Malooley Webster, Mike is survived by his children, Michael Patrick Webster and his wife, Andrea, Inglish Webster Foust, and Christine Turner Fisher. Additional survivors include his sisters, Jayne Webster Luken and her husband, Greg, as well as Susan Webster Royce. Mike was a loving Grandpa and formed a unique bond with each of his grandchildren. Surviving grandchildren are Laine, Adison, Elle, Mick, and Cici Webster; Logan, Reagan, and Kooper Foust; and Connor, Abby Rose, & Joe Fisher. Mike is also survived by his nephews, Zach & Jake Odum, as well as Alex and Nathan Royce. Additional survivors include his sisters-in-law and their families, Patti Malooley Holmes and her companion, Gene Jarvis, as well as Molly Malooley Fisk and her husband, Mark, along with their children. Mike’s list of survivors wouldn’t be complete without recognizing his many close friends, most of which he considered family, and in particular, a high school classmate of Mike’s, whom both Mike and Nan considered family, Becky Altman Smith, for her enormous level of care for each of them during Mike’s health issues.
