RANDOLPH — Charlotte Howe Dubowsky, 81, died Monday, Oct. 8, 2012, at her home in Raleigh, N.C.
She was born in Tunbridge on March 20, 1931, the daughter of Hugh and Mabelle Taft Howe. She graduated from South Royalton High School in 1949 and Northampton (Mass.) Commercial College in 1951. She worked as a secretary at Dartmouth College, under civil service at Fort Knox, Ky., and for three years at Deerfield Academy in Deerfield, Mass., before her marriage to Thomas Dubowsky on Nov. 3, 1956. She and her husband lived in Connecticut for the next 23 years where they raised their family. She was a member of the Asbury United Methodist Church in Forestville, Conn., and was a Girl Scout leader.
They moved to Jackson, N.J., in 1979, due to a job transfer for her husband. Charlotte was then employed as an office manager for a dermatologist in Lakewood, N.J., until her retirement in 1993. She was a member of the Jackson Senior Citizens and the United Methodist Church of Jackson.
In 1993, Charlotte and her husband retired to Randolph, where she became active in the Randolph Senior Citizens, the Gifford Medical Center Ladies Auxiliary, and rejoined the Tunbridge Church where she had been a member as a child. She enjoyed playing cards and passed many pleasant hours playing bridge and 500. She moved to Raleigh, N.C., three years ago to be closer to her family.
She is survived by her three children, Debra Infante, of St. Petersburg, Fla., Diane Matyasovsky, of Jackson, N.J., and Seth Dubowsky, of Cary, N.C.; one sister, Jean Kennedy, of Williamstown; one brother, Clifford Howe, of Tunbridge; three grandchildren, David Matyasovsky, Sarah Infante and Thomas Dubowsky; two great-grandchildren, Neveah Infante and Avyahna Infante; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
