One of Loudoun’s strongest conservation and parks advocates, Su Webb, has died.
Webb was found in her home by Loudoun County deputies who were called to check on her welfare after she missed several of her usual appointments.
A longtime newspaperwoman, Webb devoted decades of service to preservation efforts in Loudoun.
She was a founder and chairman of the Loudoun Heritage Farm Museum and served on the boards of the Piedmont Environmental Council, Aldie Heritage Association, and Lovettsville Park Advisory Board. For more than 20 years, she served on the Loudoun County Parks, Recreation and Open Space Advisory Board and had served on the Northern Virginia Regional Parks Authority board.
In addition to the founding of the Farm Museum at Claude Moore Park in Sterling, her lasting accomplishments include the transfer of the Historic Mt. Zion Church and Aldie Mill Park to the protection of NOVA Parks, the establishment of Gilbert’s Corner Regional Park and White’s Ford Regional Park.
Among the accolades presented for her service, she was named the 2012 her Heritage Hero by the Mosby Heritage Association and was inducted as a Loudoun Laurel.
