1921-2012 Marilyn Elizabeth Lubeck, 91, a resident of Bennington, died peacefully on Monday , September 24, 21012 following a long illness.

Born in New Orleans, LA on March 23, 1921, she was the beloved daughter of the late Emile and Marguerite (Niedeck) Kostal. Marilyn grew up on Staten Island, NY, the oldest of six children. She moved to NJ where she attended Rutgers Women's College for one year, studying bacteriology. She married Stanley E. Lubeck and they were married for sixty-seven years. Mr Lubeck predeceased her in 2007. Together they raised a family of six children, five boys and one girl, in Clark and Westfield, NJ. She was employed at Bamberger's Dept Store for over twenty years. After her family had grown, Marilyn returned to college and in 1984 received her BA in Psychology from Bloomfield College. She also moved to Bennington, VT in 1984. She remained active as a substitute teacher at the Bennington Middle School and volunteered locally, allowing her to meet and help many people. Mrs. Lubeck was a peer counselor for the Council on Aging, visiting homebound elders, a docent, giving tours at the Park-McCollough House in North Bennington for twenty years. She also taught adults to read at the Tutorial Center in Bennington, and was a volunteer receptionist at the Dept of Health in town and was the first to be part of the Telecare Program to call homebound elders. Marilyn received the Vermont Governor's Award for Outstanding Community Service in 2011, at the age of ninety.

Marilyn loved life to the fullest; she enjoyed antiques, auctions, art shows, travel, making her house a home, flowers, sewing, reading, music, animals, learning and meeting people.

Most of all Marilyn loved her family. She was very proud of her six children, eight grandchildren, nine great grandchildren, and had many dear and loved extended family members and friends. She is predeceased by one son in 1993.

Marilyn will be remembered as a warm, generous person with a gift of conversation and a zest for life.
