In one of my functions I open a Word instance.
My problem is that after I finish with that instance and set it to nothing its the Word process is still active(I can see it in the task manager)
What I do wrong?

The code:
Function WordFunc(TextValue)
        Dim objDocobject
        Dim strReturnValue
        Dim objWordobject As New Word.Application
        objWordobject.Visible = True
        Set objWordobject = CreateObject("word.Application")
        Set objDocobject = objWordobject.Documents.Add(, , 1, True)
        objDocobject.Content = TextValue

        objDocobject.Close False
        Set objDocobject = Nothing
        objWordobject.Application.Quit True
        Set objWordobject = Nothing      
    WordFunc= TextValue
End Function

You declare AS NEW which is not good. Anyway, declaring as OBJECT will not allow you to have the nice coding help, but should solve your problem.

Function WordFunc(TextValue)
       Dim objDocobject
       Dim strReturnValue
       Dim objWordobject As Object
       objWordobject.Visible = True
       Set objWordobject = CreateObject("word.Application")
       Set objDocobject = objWordobject.Documents.Add(, , 1, True)
       objDocobject.Content = TextValue

       objDocobject.Close False
       Set objDocobject = Nothing
       objWordobject.Application.Quit True
       Set objWordobject = Nothing      
   WordFunc= TextValue
End Function

Indeed the issue is that you are actually declaring two instances of the word.application object, one with the Set .. As New Word.Application and one with the CreateObject Call.

If you either follow angelIII's advice and declare as object or

Function WordFunc(TextValue)
      Dim objDocobject
      Dim strReturnValue
      Dim objWordobject As Word.Application
      objWordobject.Visible = True
      Set objWordobject = CreateObject("word.Application")
      Set objDocobject = objWordobject.Documents.Add(, , 1, True)
      objDocobject.Content = TextValue

      objDocobject.Close False
      Set objDocobject = Nothing
      objWordobject.Application.Quit True
      Set objWordobject = Nothing      
  WordFunc= TextValue
End Function

Without the New keyword it should be fine.
