Lee Farwell Hubbard

Lee Farwell Hubbard, 84, of Whitman, MA, passed away at Seasons Hospice
in Milton on June 20, 2021.
She was born to parents Thomas and Rena Farwell, on June 23,
1937 in Woodsville , NH.

Lee graduated from Cushing Academy and then went on to study Social
Services and Education at Colby College and graduated with a Bachelor of
Science Degree

Lee had a profound career working for Child Welfare Services as a Social
Worker, then a Teacher in Vermont. She also sold Real Estate with many
loyal and grateful clients. She was a certified Tax Preparer and retired from
the Christmas Tree Shops in 2007.

She enjoyed Family, Friends, Playing the Organ, Cross-stitch(many friends
and family proudly display her work), Gardening, Camping, and most
recently, Pogo computer games. Sunday nights were always spent hurrying
to complete her games for the week. Lee was an avid sports fan and
particularly loved the Patriots.

Lee and Robert Hubbard married in April of 1965, and remained madly in
love beyond his passing in 2001. Together they raised one
daughter, Deborah Hubbard Anders (now of Braintree MA).
Lee is survived by Deborah Anders, daughter, Scott Anders, Son in-law,
Lachlan Anders, grandson, Patrick Anders, grandson, Grace Anders,
granddaughter, Lois Donohue, sister in law and many Nieces, Nephews and
friends. Lee was a friend to everyone she met and her relationships with
friends and family were the cornerstone of her happiness and zest for life.
She never missed a party or an opportunity to gather for celebrations of any
kind, it was her brilliant smile that drew people to her. Her pride and joy
were her grandchildren and she was intensely involved in their daily lives
until her end. She was their biggest cheerleader and president of their fan
clubs. She will be missed on the sidelines of many youth sporting events
cheering on her favorite players and their friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 36 years, Robert Hubbard, her
sister and partner in crime Susan Hafeman, and her sister, Rosina French.
As Lee peacefully prepared for her reunion, she remained faithful and brave
and embraced the idea that her husband was sweeping off the dance floor in
preparation for her arrival. She spoke with animation to her daughter and
grandchildren about her hopes and dreams for them, giving a few last
minute words of advice.

The family has entrusted South Congregational Church with the
arrangements. A Visiting Hour and Memorial Service is scheduled
for Tuesday June 29th, 12:00 Visiting Hour, 1:00 Memorial Service at South
Congregational Church, 1075 Washington Street, Braintree MA. A reception
will follow at the home of Debbie and Scott Anders. Pastor Scott Killian will
officiate the ceremony.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to South Congregational Church
of Braintree.


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

    Debbie, your mom was so loving, funny, and lloyal part of our lives as we grew up. She gave me such unconditional love after mom died. She would call me out of the blue just to say hello and tell me she loved us. You and your family were her pride and joy and how she loved to share their lives with everyone. I know the hurt and sadness are there but I am so happy she is with Uncle Bob and all the rest of the family. I like to think of her and Bob singing “Bridge Over Troubled Waters”. They are both loved and missed!!

    There’s truly no one your mom adored more than you and your extraordinary children Debbie! Every time we were together and she was telling me “stories,” about you and her grandchildren, she literally was glowing with pride!! I can’t imagine a Christmas Eve without her.,,but, she made it clear to us, that we all have the best memories! She will live on in each of you…love and prayers. Xoxo

    Beautiful words Debbie. Your mom was such a wonderful woman and so devoted to her family. Her pride in that just radiated. You couldn’t have put it any better than her being a partner in crime with my mom. Those two together were both trouble and comedy and you never knew what to expect. It was always great to be able to talk football with her and she knew what she was talking about. I will miss my christmas eve chex mix but I know that she is dancing with her husband and the rest of the family together. Love you and prayers to you and your family.

    Debbie what a beautiful tribute to your mom. I will always remember those Easter baskets she left outside our bedroom doors on a weekend visit from college. I took that with me and my kids always had one outside their doors thanks to that tradition. She was a beautiful person I know will be dearly missed. Love you. Risa

    Dear Debbie– your remembrance of your Mom was so vivid–you touched on so many of her special attributes and qualities that made Lee a wonderful person. The Lamson family always loved our picnic visits with Lee (and her sisters when they were around) in different locations around New England. I will always remember her as smiling and stoic, loving and forgiving. May your memories be a blessing for all time. Lee’s cousin, Cindy Lamson (now living in Nova Scotia).

    The Healys will fondly remember Lee for all the great conversations we had with her at parties and around the campfire! She was a wonderful lady and she sure loved all of you.
