September 1, 1927February 18, 2013

Mildred “Millie” Nelson Cubbage, 85, a resident of Shenandoah, passed away on Monday, February 18, 2013 at Rockingham Memorial Hospital. She was born on September 1, 1927 in Circleville, WV, and was the daughter of the late Elmer Clarence and Sylvia Alice Judy Nelson. Millie was a clerical typist with the FBI for 12 years before marrying and moving to the valley. She shared her husband’s love for the land, as a farmer’s wife. She was known as a soft spoken woman who loved the Lord and was a devoted wife, mother, and friend to all. In her desire to teach as she once had in the hills of West Virginia, she became a substitute teacher in the Page County Public School system for 13 years. As her husband’s disease progressed, she became his devoted full-time caregiver. Her legacy includes never knowing a stranger, always having a smile, and her delicious chocolate cake. She was a member of the Mt. Lebanon C.C.C.C. On December 30, 1960, she married Maurice Allen Cubbage who preceded her in death on March 9, 2003. Also preceding her in death were her brothers, Jimmy, Johnnie and Raymond Nelson. She is survived by her children, Allen Cubbage and wife, Vicki, of Oologah, OK, Barbara Roberts and husband, Mark, of Elkton, Dennis Cubbage and wife, Linda, of Elkton, Sharon Printz and husband, Chuck, of Shenandoah, and Jeffrey Cubbage and wife, Debbie, of Elkton; ten grandchildren, Will Cubbage of Pawhuska, OK, Lee Roberts of Harrisonburg, Heather Roberts of Shenandoah, Rebecca Comer of Elkton, Cathy Duncan of Stanley, Michelle Comer of Shenandoah, Tyler and Trask Printz of Stanley, Brad Cubbage and Amanda Hammer both of Elkton; eight great-grandchildren, William Cubbage, Grace and Avery Roberts, Dylan Banach, Nicholas Duncan, Vivienne Printz, Kyler Cubbage and Trapper Hammer; special friends, Jack and Margaret Supples of Shenandoah and Tim, Tammy Wood and family of Elkton; and her church family and pastor. The family will receive friends 6-8:00 PM, Thursday, February 21, 2013 at Mt. Lebanon C. C. C. C. A funeral service will be held 2:00 PM, Friday, February 22, at the church with Rev.

I will certainly miss MIllie,she loved to tell me of her family history that
took place in West Va and here. She and her family were the first ones to invite me into their home when I moved here.That was quite a blessing in itself. Prayers to you all.

My condolences to the entire family. Millie was a sweet and wonderful woman that will be greatly missed. I am proud that she was part of my family.

Barb and all the family - Millie was a sweetheart. I loved it when she would stop by the Home Health office to check on everyone and visit awhile. So friendly and out going, made all of us feel like we were one of hers too. And she would laugh right along with all of us!!! It was a priviledge to make an occasional visit to the home and watch her care for your dad, she was wonderful with him. You have been blessed and I know you will count those blessings as you recall the sweet memories. Plan to see you tonight. Love you all, Char
