Dear Chris , Liz and family,

I was saddened to learn about the loss of your Mother. My Uncle Ray Corti and Aunt Lorraine Corti Weiden told us about her passing.
We share a gracious bond with your family because of our Corti ancestors. I am also writing ✍🏻 to tell you that I have shared your Mom’s obituary with Mario Corti family in Corgeno, Italy.
Grandma Maria gave much to our family by keeping our Italian bond close to her heart. I believe that your Mom felt that bond too. She had told me once in her email that she would have loved visiting Corgeno.
She also told me that she was happy to know that we are connected in our emails.

I am sending you some Italian ❤️ and hug for now.

In my first post I didn’t realize I posted a picture that the family already had. That was my favorite picture of Mr. and Mrs. Bubel that my wife took on the 4th of July. Anyway, here is another 4th of July picture. I am so glad Mrs. Bubel was a part of my daughters life. ❤️

Mrs. B (what my young daughter calls her) was the kindest, most sweetest lady I knew. If one looked up the definition of Mom, Grandma, or Great Grandma it would say “see Mrs. B.” In fact I would describe her to my friends as my second Mom. She was also like a grandmother to my daughter Kaley.
I always looked forward to our Sunday afternoon visits after Kaley and I went to church. We would bring her lunch and then Kaley would go back in the guest room and play with the cupcake dolls, and then Mrs. Bubel would catch me up on the latest news about her family. She knew what everyone was up to, her kids, grandkids, and her great grandkids. She would beam with pride and joy talking about them. You can tell she was all about family. After our talk she would then would go back and play dolls with my daughter or read her a book. She never stoped being a Mom, even with somebody else’s kids.
One Sunday after a visit my daughter was making noise, yelling, and just having fun as we were saying our goodbyes at the front door. I told Kaley to be quiet and Mrs. B turned to me and said “Oh just let her be a kid.”That was some of the best advice I could’ve ever received as a parent.
My favorite memories of
her was when she was in the kitchen. She loved to bake. One time when she was baking, Jack and I (young kids) snuck through the dining room to reach the kitchen so we could steal some of her oatmeal chocolate chip cookies that were fresh out of the oven. Boy they were good! She let us think we were getting away with something, but she knew we were there taking those cookies. She was most famous for Christmas cookies. She must’ve spent hours baking and decorating those cookies every year. It just wasn’t Christmas without her cookies.
I could go on talking forever about how cool Mrs B. was. We will miss her. But she is still with us. She lives on through her kids, grandkids, and great grandchildren. Rest In Peace Mrs. B..
We love you,
David, Kat, & Kaley Webb

We lived on the same street in Sparkman. We did many fourth of July floats together. But best memory was her caring attitude when we had our youngest child. They both had the same first and middle name. Mary Louise.

Dear Bubel Family,
Mary Bubel was a gracious and caring person. She gave great comfort to myself and the other teenagers she welcomed into your home when we were such self-obsessed teenagers.
Kindest Wishes to your family.

Dear Bubles~
I am truly sorry to hear of the loss of your beautiful, sweet mom. We have so many shared memories of St. Monica. Our mom’s were brownie leaders together.
My mom just passed away in January at 90. My parents are both buried at DFW Nat’l . Cemetery as well.
I think of you often-esp Liz and Chris and hope you are well.
Again-I’m truly sorry about your mom. She was so special!

Love , Dianne

Mrs. Bubel joined my Mom, Pat Gatewood, Dot Fox and some of the Gatewood Kids and GrandKids on a roadtrip to Round Rock, Texas to attend a celebration of Mrs. Rosemary Kennedy's 80th Birthday Party. We had Great Fun and enjoyed our 1 day roadtrip. Mrs. Bubel was also my Brownie Leader and a very important friend of all my Family. She will be greatly missed by her loving Family and Friends. However, she is now in the company of her husband and many friends in Heaven; including my Mom and Dad. I loved her smiling face, which made me smile back at her.
Also, my Mom taught Mrs. Bubel how to drive because she needed to learn so she could drive her children to school at St. Monica Elementary School. I
remember when Chris and I received our First Communion and we celebrated with all the Bubel's too. Mr. Bubel drove us to the Church in his convertable with the hood down and he also took my sister, Teri and I to our first Ballet with Chris and Liz. We shared a lot of event's with the Bubel Family and Mary Bubel was a part of the heart and soul of our Family's relationship. Mary, I Love you and send my Prayers with Hugs and Kisses to you.(please share them with my Mom when you see her).
