Memories Timeline


  1. To Deedie\’s family: I\’m so sorry for this sad time in your lives. Deedie was a delight to know. Prayers. Brenda Mitchell

  2. BCHS class of 1984. Ms Kubale was one of the most inspirational teachers I had at BCHS and a big reason I went into teaching. I try to honor her in my science classroom by using her style of teaching. She let us explore as we learned, challenged us each day, but mostly seemed to have such care for us as people. I will always remember her.

  3. To Dee and the family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. Kubale . I have fond memories of her from high school. She taught me Biology and I certainly loved her class. It appears that she had a very fulfilling life. Please accept my sincere sympathy and always keep the good memories of her in your heart and mind. God bless you all. Sincerely, Ethyle Sleet

  4. Mrs. Kubale was such an incredibly gifted teacher who had a tremendous impact on the lives of the students that were blessed to have her as their teacher and mentor. She was such a warm and wonderful person and remains my absolute favorite teacher (BCHS Class of 1978). I always looked forward to her classes (biology and advanced biology) and have many fond memories of her. Mrs. Kubale challenged, encouraged, and inspired everyone to do their best. She prepared us all well for higher education and she will always have a very special place in my heart. I pray that God will comfort and bless her family and all others who knew and loved her and give peace and assurance that we will see her again someday. With loving memories and deepest sympathy, Debbie Holt, PhD

  5. Deedie always made me feel special when she called me \”Sugar\”. I will miss her smile, wit & wisdom. Grateful for having had the opportunity to spend some snowbird time with her & her family. My sympathy for your loss.

  6. Mrs. Kubale, always had a beautiful smile, she was a gifted teacher who made her biology classes fun and interesting. I feel very blessed to have had her. My deepest sympathy to her loving family.

  7. To Deedie\’s children, Mariam, Dee, Jim and Ed, I always loved it when our paths crossed and the various kindnesses she showed me. One day, at my register at Whole Foods, she walked right up and leaned over the counter and kissed me on the cheek. I was so glad to see her and catch up. I felt we had a kindred spirit with our farm backgrounds. I regret that I did drop by to see her since the luncheon you all hosted for Kate at the country club before their wedding. I hope she knew how fond I was of her. I know that Joe Russell and Aunt Sitty loved her better than anything. You all take care of each other as you try to make it without her. I have known the kind of heartache now for five years since we lost our mom. Sincerely, Linda Russell
