Janet M. Hubbs

October 22, 1934April 10, 2018

Janet M. “Jan” Hubbs (nee Shults); beloved wife of the late James Hubbs; devoted mother of Allan Lage and his wife Miriam Villanueva Lage; Karan Lage and her wife Ruth Miller; Richard Lage and his wife Sheryl; Erich Lage and his wife Sisi Verde Lage. She is also survived by her 13 grandchildren, many great grandchildren and her cherished friend Jennifer Roberts.

Jan was a giving, loving soul. Her purpose on earth was to give from her heart & care for others. Two legged or four. Mostly four legged. She loved feeding her birds and taking in abandoned cats who needed a home where she offered tons of love and endless snuggle time. She was happiest crocheting, painting ceramics or asking her loving daughter to put up her holiday decorations all around her apartment. She must have crocheted hundreds of blankets over the years & countless ceramic items. Always to be given away to friends, family and children in need. Every Christmas Jan worked hours and hours crocheting and sewing special baby blankets and little pillows putting together care packages she donated to the babies & moms living at the house of Ruth. She truly was her happiest barefoot walking on the beach with her toes in the ocean.

A Celebration of Jan’s life will be held in the LEMMON FUNERAL HOME OF DULANEY VALLEY INC., 10 W. Padonia Road (at York Road) Timonium, MD 21093 on Friday, April 13 at 12noon. Jan wanted everyone to wear colorful clothes to her funeral. She was a colorful spirit and wanted to be remembered that way.

Entombment Private.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Jan’s memory for the care of and finding new homes for cats to Ursula Lockerby, 3160 E. Main Street, Lot #93, Mesa, AZ 85213. Jan’s cat, Shadow, was adopted from Ursula.

Your Smile,,,,,,,, will forever be remembered!
That wonderful,big,bright,
contagious, room illuminating smile. I will forever cherrish the time we spent together at the beach. Remember how hard we all laughed that morning at the Jewish Deli? Remember how much fun we had in the Linen Store? Our list of laughs and fun could go on and on. What I want you to know most is, how much I admire you and your Daughters. The always LOVING interaction I was privigledged enough to experience between You and Karan and Ruthie. This was certainly something to behold! Even on a bad day it was always "OK". There were only smiles and kind words and gestures. Your beautiful soul certainly is radiant. I will miss you visiting me at the Beach, rolling balls of yarn for you while chatting and laughing with you. May your beautiful,smiling,radiant soul forever rest in peace.
