Ethelene HUBBARD Obituary
HUBBARD, Ethelene Ethelene Hubbard was born May 28, 1917 in Carroll County to Gertrude Bell Powers and John Powers. She was the sixth child, with five brothers and five sisters. Only one sister, Jessie Fields, and one sister-in-law, Louise Powers Lambert, survive her. In March 1941, she married William Tommie Hubbard who died in 2002. They had a daughter, Marjorie Hubbard, and a son, Bill Hubbard who married Letitia Hannon Hubbard and produced two grandsons, John David (Hub) Hubbard of Ventura, CA and Mark Allen Hubbard of Ponte Vedra, FL. Each of the grandsons had three children that Ethelene loved and enjoyed so very much. They always cheered her up. Hub's are Gus, Georgia, and Noah. Mark's are Myla, Eleanor, and Henry. There are also many nieces and nephews that she loved and who were very special to her. Ethelene spent a couple of years at West Georgia College but in her heart she always wanted to become a beautician and own her own shop. She went to beautician school and that love of doing hair lasted all of her life; and she had her own beauty shop most of her career. She trained many young aspiring beauticians. When Tommie was drafted into the Army during WWII, she followed him to Pennsylvania with her daughter for a year to be near him until he shipped out overseas. She worked at a nearby beauty shop where the owners were very kind to her. She went back to Carrollton and opened her first beauty shop. In 1952, the family moved to Cedartown where she became very active in the First Baptist Church. She taught children's Sunday School for 64 years and was always thinking up creative ways to teach the little ones about the Bible. She also became a member of the Cedartown Eastern Star Chapter; and over 50 years she filled almost all of the positions. She was Worthy Matron 9 times; and in 2006-2007 she had the joy of going all over the state as the Grand Chapter Grandmama in the Wings of Faith Grand Family. She also went to many Grand Chapter meetings in other states and Canada. Due to the Eastern Star traveling, a car trip across the southern states to California, and a group tour to Hawaii with husband, Tommie, Ethelene visited all of the states except the New England states. In 2006 her sister-in-law, Louise Lambert, and two of her daughters, Janie Light and Teresa Rachal, took her on a tour to New England. When the bus arrived in the sixth state, there was a surprise celebration for her for having visited all 50 states. Ethelene loved to travel and went on many trips with her older sister, Mildred. She and Mildred took her grandson, Hub, on a trip to Australia and New Zealand. They went on a ship cruise to Alaska and on a tour of Great Britain and Italy. She and Mildred also went to the Holy Land in Israel where they were baptized in the Jordan River. Ethelene lived her faith and it was always obvious how much she cared about serving her Lord and helping others. Many times she found solace, inspiration and guidance in His word that she tried to bring to life every day for those around her. The funeral arrangements for Mrs. Hubbard will be conducted on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at eleven o'clock in morning at the First Baptist Church of Cedartown with Rev. Wayne Benefield officiating.
