The Romulus community is mourning the death of City Councilwoman Eva Webb, 75, who died Dec. 15, 2023 after a hard-fought health battle. 

Calling the City of Romulus home since 1972, Mrs. Webb served on countless boards commissions and volunteer organizations always focused on helping others and moving her community forward, city officials recalled.    

Mrs. Webb's career encompassed various roles, including service as a City of Romulus employee in the Building Department beginning in 1996, moving to the position of Administrative Assistant to the City Clerk and then appointed Deputy City Clerk in 2001, a role she held until her retirement in 2009.

Before her death, she was serving her second consecutive term on the city council following her re-election in 2021.

Quoted in a 2022 spotlight on her service to the community and her career Councilwoman Webb stated, “Being elected to the Romulus City Council has given me an even deeper appreciation for this community and its people.  I love the community and am proud to have raised my children here as well as helped to instill in my grandchildren compassions, faith, honor, love and respect.”
