December 21, 1918 – January 13, 2020
On January 13, 2020, Zubie Hubert Daniel, age 101 left this Earth to entertain her heavenly audience. Her spirit will be carried on by her two daughters: Diane Malarcher of Plano, TX and Janet Duroncelet (Theo) of New Orleans, LA, seven grandchildren: Falvey Malarcher Jr. (Kati), Louis Malarcher (Sandra), Casey Malarcher (Jieun), Shawn Malarcher (Christopher Landis), Alethea McKelvey (Tim), Daniel Dilzell (Claire Sanchez), Katherine Dilzell, and seven great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents Marvin and Mary Hubert, husband Hugh “Pete” Daniel, siblings Edward “Ted” Hubert and Elma Harmon, son-in-law Wayne Dilzell, son-in-law Falvey Malarcher Sr., and ALL of her close friends.
Born in Alabama and married in Georgia, Zubie moved to Louisiana in 1957 with her husband and daughters. She graduated from the University of New Orleans in 1970 with a degree in Library Science and spent fourteen years working in Orleans Parish Public Schools. For many years, she was an active member of Metairie Baptist Church where she maintained the atrium garden and cared for pet turtle “Eve.” When she wasn’t working or worshipping, she enjoyed a number of activities including but not limited to traveling, cooking, gardening, volunteering, walking along the lake, playing bridge and causing trouble around town. If you happened to cross her path, Zubie was easy to spot in her colorful attire, fabulous hats, and feather boas. She particularly enjoyed the holidays, but any occasion was cause for celebration. Zubie loved life, and everyone loved her.
Her family would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff and caregivers at Woldenberg Village, especially Hyacinth Christman, Trenetta Williams, Vivian Neeley and Nellie Jones.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend the Funeral Service in the Chapel of Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home on Wednesday, January 15, 2020Y at 12:00pm. Visitation will begin at 11:00am. Interment will be at All Saints Mausoleum in Metairie Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Metairie Baptist Church.
The family invites you to share your thoughts, fond memories, and condolences online at www.lakelawnmetairie.com.

When I think of Aunt Zubie, I smile. She smiled and laughed a lot, and found joy all around. On her visits back to Alabama she livened us all and the whole family looked forward to seeing her and being in her presence. She had a repertoire of jokes and memories that seemed endless and loved sharing them. Growing up, she was the only adult I knew that wore several rings on a daily basis. When Mother (her sister) was with her, she was more relaxed and joyful. I remember one trip to NO when Aunt Zubie took us to the Quarter. It was day time but there was still a lot going on. Aunt Zubie and Mother went down the street, peeping into each bar and laughing all the way along.
