Carol Tubbs Obituary

Written By Editor on 1/30/20 | 1/30/20

Carol Jacoby Tubbs, age 86, a resident of Andes since 1962, passed away at Bassett Medical Center in Cooperstown on Sunday January 26, 2020.

She was born in Peekskill on February 5, 1933, the daughter of William Earl and Mary Veronica (Howard) Jacoby. Carol married Donald B. Tubbs on February 27, 1954 in Croton-on-Hudson.

After her children were all in school, she went to work at SUNY Delhi as a secretary for several department heads until she retired after 22 years of service. Carol loved making and selling jelly in her retirement years. She became known as the "Jelly Queen" in Andes. She truly enjoyed talking to everyone that stopped by to see her. She also had a passion for traveling that included visits to all 50 States. Carol's love of life was contagious to all who knew her. She loved to sing, dance and listen to all kinds of music, especially her Neil Diamond CD. Knitting was another passion of hers; hundreds of mittens and scarves were shared with friends, relatives, and anyone who needed them.

She is survived by her children: daughter Susan and her husband Ray Magill of Vergennes, VT; son Bruce and his wife Kathleen Tubbs of Ticonderoga; son Jeff Tubbs and girlfriend Lisa Marasa of Andes; and daughter Nancy and her husband Greg Greenlow of Suwanee, GA, as well as grandchildren: Jason Sabourin, Caitlin Magill, Meagan Tubbs, Carly Tubbs, Justin Stratton (fiancée Amanda Galunas), Ryan Greenlow, Brianna Greenlow; great-grandchild Jaxon Stratton and her sisters Margot Vaccaro of East Hanover, NJ and Gail Russell of Arlington, VA.

Carol was predeceased by her husband Donald (2004) and son William (Buck) (1990) as well as her sisters, Velma Sheridan and Joan Gera.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Hampshire House in Oneonta and the doctors and nurses at Bassett Medical Center, Cooperstown for their care and support.

Funeral and committal services will take place in the spring at a time and date to be announced. At that time, the family is asking that a donation to the Andes Fire Department be made in lieu of flowers.
