Janice A. Kolbe-Tubell

Melbourne - Florida resident Janice A. Kolbe-Tubell, 83, died August 10, 2020 in Melbourne, FL. At her request, no formal service will be held. Janice was born August 17th, 1936, in Flint, Michigan, to Harry and Elsie Kolbe. Janice was popular and excelled in school. She supported her family working for the Michigan National Bank as a teller and later as Executive secretary for the Bank's Vice President. In July 1958 she left Flint, MI for Cocoa Beach, Florida to work for Pan Am in the government service division supporting the early days of America's race for space. Here again she excelled and met her future husband, Wally Tubell, who was employed with RCA also supporting space operations out of Cape Canaveral and Patrick Air Force Base. Janice and Wally married in November 1960 and had three children, Wally Jr., Alyce and Eleanor. Later came grandchildren Kolbe and Parker Howard, and Alexandra Tubell. Janice and Wally were married until his death in 2016. Their life took them and their children to New Jersey, New York, the Bahamas and back to Central Florida in mid 1979 where Janice has resided ever since. Upon returning to Central Florida and with children grown up, Janice went back to work at Florida Institute of Technology, retiring as Executive Assistant to the University President in 1996. Janice will be remembered as an avid piano player, the hostess with the mostest, and a dear friend. And most of all, she'll be remembered as a beloved and generous mother, grandmother, aunt and mentor to so many. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in her name to Central Brevard Humane Society. Arrangements by Ammen Family Cremation and Funeral Care, Melbourne, 321-724-2222.

I never got to taste your famous conch fritters- I have the recipe which I really wanted to learn from the master but I will give it my best shot. You treated everyone like a best friend - thank you for including me in some of the best family outings ever... You are at peace now Mama and Papa Tubell together again. You will be missed more than youll ever know. Ellie’s buddy Kelli - My birthday gift to you is a donation to the humane society- from one dog lover to another
