Lee Carr Holub

August 28, 1931 ~ December 3, 2016 (age 85)

Lee Carr Holub (formerly Lincoln) passed on to join family and friends who predeceased her, peacefully surrounded by close family. She left this world on December 3rd in the home of her daughter and son-in-law where she resided for the past five years.

Lee was born in Colrain, MA (Foundry Village) on August 28th, 1931, the youngest of three daughters to Leon and Pansy “Penny” Carr. She attended the historical “One Room School House” in Foundry Village, Colrain, and graduated high school in 1949 from Arms Academy in Shelburne Falls. While raising children as a single parent, she worked for years as a Financial Bookkeeper at the offices of Blassberg Auto and Dillon Chevrolet. In 1984, Lee was married to Frank Holub, Sr. who predeceased her in 1995.

Lee’s journey in life led to Becket, MA as a member of the Bonny Rigg Camping Club, Hyannis, MA and Inverness, FL before failing health limited her ability to live independently. Her mind and spirit remained sharp, and her ability to listen carefully allowed her to keep track of the growing families of her children.

Lee greatly loved spending time by the ocean and cherished her favorite spot at Covell Beach. She became very active in line dancing and would be known to “boot scootin boogie” to all kinds of music. Her warm smile and sense of humor endeared those who came to know and love her. She had a natural way of bringing people together, which was demonstrated by the gatherings of family and friends around her.

Lee’s strength to cherish life and hold family dear will be carried on by her four children; Gary and his wife Doreen Lincoln of Brattleboro, VT, Robert Lincoln and his wife Karen Eldred of Conway, MA, Helen Lincoln-White and her husband Chris White of Greenfield, MA and Mary Lincoln of Hyannis, MA. Lee also leaves her loving grandchildren; Dana McClelland and Ryan, Max Lincoln, Evan Lincoln, Usha Lincoln and Kole, Laura Funari and Frank, Lisa Hassay and Eric, Eric Lincoln-Quinlivan, and Scarlet White and Corey, great grandchildren; Alex, Kyler, and Tyley McClelland, Vincent Funari, Tyler, Elizabeth, and Kelly Trudeau, Caitlyn and Liam Hassay, grandpup, Mya Lincoln, and loyal and beloved cat, Buddy.

Typical Lee fashion, she did not want people to “fuss” over her and insisted there would be no formal service. Her family will celebrate her life at her cherished ocean spots on Lewis Bay where she enjoyed many summers.

The family wishes to thank Cooley Dickinson Hospice and Palliative Care, especially Kris Martin, Charlene Felton, Anna Hansen and Chaplain Ben, LifePath’s Adult Family Care Program, Ann Boudreau and Ashlee Cancio-Bello, Dr. Blacksin and Jan Peterson of Conn. River Internists and wonderful caretakers Cindy O’Hearn and Heather DeMuzzio for their ongoing support and love throughout her end of life transition.

In her memory, the family asks that we treat each other with the grace she showed us.
