Frances Carrubba Obituary

Our Families Say:
Dear Paul and Staff - Jeff's passing was as much a shock for you, as for our family. Your kind, caring ways; your gentle guidance through those first few days after his death and ultimately through the calling hours and funeral - you never failed to be there when we needed you and continue to do so now. Our community is extremely fortunate to have you here to respond and assist families at such difficult times.

Paul and Staff - Your compassion helped us deal with our loss, and your professionalism was unsurpassed in helping us plan his wake and service. It truly was a celebration of David's life.
Diane Blakley

Dear Paul and Staff - When you took our choices and put them into action (I am an OCD perfectionist) I could not have orchestrated the whole process better if I had directed it myself. You went above and beyond. It was phenomenal. I mean phenomenal!!!

"Personally, I think you have really answered your true calling in life, to help us deal with the death of a loved one."
Sincerely, Terry Vinning

Dear Paul,
Words cannot express how grateful my sister and I are for all you did for our father, Thomas Turck's, funeral. You and your staff were always professional, courteous and attentive to all of our requests. From the time that Joanne and I sat with you to discuss and finalize the details for the funeral, through the burial, you could not have made it easier for us, and your attention to detail was excellent. Our father would have appreciated all the military detail, including the Army insignia on the hearse and the presenting of the three flags at the cemetery.
Joanne and I both thank you!

Dear Paul & Staff - We cannot begin to express our gratitude to you for all you did to make the passing of Mom easier for us to get through. Every aspect was perfect, from making the arrangements, to making mom beautiful, to decorating with mom's things, the funeral and graveside. We will never forget your kindness and compassion during a very difficult time in our lives.
Cindy and John Belsito

Dear Paul and Staff - Thank you!! Thank you!! For the manner in which you handled Tony's funeral. We were very pleased. God bless you!!
Anne Greco & son Tony

Dear Paul and Staff - There are not enough words to thank you all. You are very special to me and I will never forget and will always be grateful to all of you.
Very Truly Yours
Kathy Napierkowski

Paul and Staff - Thank you for all you did to make sure Harold was laid to rest with lots of love and dignity. I appreciate your kind, courteous and professional service.
Love, Dolores Leonard

Dear Paul and Staff - Kind, gentle, efficient, professional this is what you are. Sincere thanks for all that was done for Ella and our family.
In Sorrow, Paul Panesa

Dear Paul and Staff - I just would like to thank you for your kindness that you gave to my husband John, during these sad times of losing both of his parents. The professionalism that you showed was outstanding but most of all your compassion and caring meant so much to us all.
Blessings & Prayers, Nancy & John Napoleon

Frances "June" Carrubba

May 27, 2017
Resided in Kingston, NY


Frances "June" Carrubba, 84, died, Saturday, May 27, 2017 at her home.

Born in Tribes Hill, NY, she was a daughter of the late Peter & Frances Dempsey Murphy.

June was a life-long Kingston area resident, growing up in the Rondout section, as her family operated river barges, hauling freight from NYC to the Buffalo/Great Lakes region. She attended Kingston High until she started her career as a seamstress in local Kingston factories. June married the love of her life, Joseph C Carrubba ("Buddy"), in 1953, who died two months shy of their 50th Wedding Anniversary. They started raising their family in 1956.

June later specialized in sewing custom draperies, eventually starting her own successful business, providing products directly to the public or working in conjunction with the finest interior decorators in the region.

June was well traveled, having lived in Europe in 1970, and returned numerous times to view the best cities and countries on the continent. She loved cruising on the large ships, and visited most of the islands in the Caribbean. June was very proud to be able to see Ireland on one of her trips, and explore some of her family history.

In addition to her career, June was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, friend and sibling. She was also an excellent homemaker, accomplished cook and always retained her interest in the latest decorating designs.
June is survived by her three sons, Joseph Carrubba and his wife Barbara of Saugerties, James Carrubba and his wife Debra of Ruby and John Carrubba of Catskill, a sister, Rosemary Allen and her husband Frank of Kingston, four grandchildren, Christine, Joseph, James and Hope, two great grandchildren, Abby and Grayson. Several nieces and nephews also survive.
