Known as a lively and engaging student, Delorice was educated in the Public School System in North Carolina attaining her Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from the Elizabeth City State University in Elizabeth City, NC, and later studied at Columbia University in New York City, NY. Delorice’s college sweetheart was the late James D. Greer. Upon graduating from college, they were married and moved to Jersey City, New Jersey to begin their life together. God blessed them with two wonderful children, James K. Greer (deceased) and Jamice Greer Obianyo. Her constant devotion as mother to her two children was her greatest calling.

During her career, she was blessed to positively impact thousands of students and their families. Delorice was honored as the Teacher of the Year by the former Governor, Thomas Kean, in 1990 for her dedication, commitment and passion to serve all children she taught.

In 1992, God blessed Delorice to remarry and she married the late Dr. Ercel F. Webb who was a retired pastor and former educator in the Jersey City School System. She has always been a lover of God’s Word and Delorice has built strong Christian bonds with many people throughout her life. Her service to God, her family, and the community has truly been her greatest joy.
