SARATOGA SPRINGS - Barbara Sarah Williams Chubb passed away peacefully Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012, at Saratoga Hospital.
The Guest Book is expired.
Born Dec. 29, 1943, in Schenectady, she was the daughter of the late Russell and Velma Williams. She was a 1961 graduate of Linton High School.
Barbara proudly worked for the Saratoga Springs City School District for 35 years as an elementary school teacher. She retired in 1999.
She was a member of the Saratoga Springs United Methodist Church and its choir (proudly as an Alto), a volunteer at Saratoga Hospital, the secretary of the Saratoga Springs Football Booster Club and various Saratoga Springs community sports organizations, was a charter member on the board of directors for the Allegiance Bowl and was active in the Saratoga Retired Teachers Association.
Barbara was an avid baseball fan who especially loved the Baltimore Orioles. During her winter stays in southern Florida, she often attended pre-season baseball games. Other activities she enjoyed included baking and sharing her pumpkin bread and fudge with others, spending time at her family's camp in Lake Luzerne, making and sending cards and cakes to friends and family (and even strangers!), reading, traveling, five-hour lunches with girlfriends, cross stitching and knitting, sending out Methodist prayers and spending time with her grandson.
Barbara is survived by her husband, Clayton Chubb Jr. of Saratoga Springs; her daughter, Beth Chubb of Wilton; her grandson, Andrew Clayton Roberts; her sister, Peg Gardner of Arcadia, Fla.; and nephews, Scott Gardner of Cumberland, Maine, and Timothy Gardner of Baltimore, Md.
In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her daughter, Amy Elizabeth, and her son, Christopher Charles.
