Myrna L. Zubee passed away peacefully in Old Saybrook on March 3, at age 88 after a short illness. A kind and gentle person, she raised a large and loving family in Westbrook.
Her family settled in Westbrook in the 1950s and her house near the train station was a town landmark. When it burned down around 2000, she moved to Ivoryton in a small home where she could indulge her favorite hobby: attending local tag sales and bringing home unique surprises. She loved her family and most of all the holiday parties. She had a knack for finding just the right presents for her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed Westbrook’s beaches and was a source of knowledge about the town’s history. She liked to laugh, and her sense of humor was delightful.
She leaves her four children, Bruce Zubee of Woodstock (Robert Chang), Bonnie Plass of Westbrook (Jonathan J. Einhorn), April Boll of Clinton, and Scott Zubee of Westbrook (Laurie Baxter Zubee). She adored her grandchildren Angel Johnson of Westbrook (Jared Johnson) and Joshua Zubee of Westbrook and her only great-grandchild, Madelyn May Johnson, and cherished the time they spent together.
She also leaves behind a brother, Donald “Butch” Perring and his wife Shirley and their children Ronda Panucci and Sinder Perring of Crestview, Florida. She was predeceased by two children, Mark Zubee and Wayne Zubee, both of Westbrook.
Myrna will be missed by all.
