Jean Hubbard

April 19, 1930 — July 8, 2014

Jean Marie Hubbard, age 84, of Cameron Park, Calif., passed away in Placerville, Calif., on July 8, 2014. She was born on April 19, 1930, in Lena, Ill. She was the only child of Mildred and Henry Panska, also of Illinois. She fought a hard battle with Alzheimer’s for 10 years, which eventually claimed her life.

It was while growing up in the small farm town of Freeport, Ill., that Jean developed the desire to travel and see new places. She became a Registered Nurse after high school and served our country by joining the U.S. Air Force and embarking upon an illustrious medical career that found her stationed all over the United States as well as Japan. It was during this phase of her life that she met her future spouse, USAF pilot Russ (Eben Russell) Hubbard; they were married in 1960. They were blessed with two daughters, and during the years of Russ’s military career they lived in various places throughout the country, meeting new people and sampling different U.S. cultures.

In 1979, Russ retired at the age of 52 and moved his family to El Dorado County, where he and Jean found a permanent home in Cameron Park. Interested in the evolving technology age, Jean and Russ started a very successful Radio Shack store in Placerville, Calif., in 1982. There, they worked side by side for more than 28 years, taking a break by traveling to different countries once or twice a year.

Jean is survived by her husband, Russ Hubbard; daughters, Lisa Lewis and Cheryl Kurywchak; son-in-law, Dan Kurywchak; and grandchildren, Danylle and Anthony Kurywchak, all of Cameron Park.

Jean was a loving wife and mother and a caring friend to so many. Even those who only knew her casually were struck by her warmth and friendliness. She will be forever remembered in the hearts of all those she touched, and deeply missed by her family and friends.

Private inurnment has been held. Contributions in Jean’s name may be made to Snowline Hospice of El Dorado County, 6520 Pleasant Valley Road, Diamond Springs, CA 95619 or online at snowlinehospice.org. Arrangements entrusted to Chapel of the Pines Funeral Home in Placerville.
