Tubby lived on the family farm in Blue Knob for over 80 years. She was a member of the Mt. Hope United Church of Christ, the Blue Knob Fire Company Ladies Auxillary, Greenfield Democratic Club and a devoted volunteer quilter at Homewood at Martinsburg for many years. Through the years she enjoyed quilting, cake decorating and crocheting afghans, dolls, ornaments and doilies. Her greatest love, however, was raising her family and spending time with her beloved children and grandchildren.
The family wishes to express heartfelt gratitude to Tammy Weyandt and Holly Fink, Tubby’s personal caregivers and friends, as well as the wonderful people at Windber Hospice.
Due to COVID-19 regulations, a private burial will be held at the convenience of the family. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
