NASHUA, N.H. — Genevieve “Jean” Mildred (Boran) Carrubba, 87, died peacefully on Nov. 14, 2007, surrounded by her family at her residence, Langdon Place in Nashua. For 64 years she was the wife of Joseph L. Carrubba Jr., who died April 3, 2004.
Jean was the last of eight children born in Shelton, Conn., to Polish immigrants Andrew and Anna (Sterkovic) Boran on March 3, 1920. Most of her time was spent as a homemaker on Bristol Street in Waterbury, raising her family. However, there was time to spend several years at U.S. Rubber Company at Naugatuck, serving as a food demonstrator at Mohegan Market in downtown Waterbury, and selling Avon door to door.
Jean loved to play card games with family and friends, dance, tend to her flowers and, most recently, play bingo. While there were many facets to Jean’s life, her most enduring commitment was to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She is survived by a son, Joseph, and his wife, Jane, of Pepperell; two daughters, Jennifer A. Trombley and her husband, David, of Guilford, Conn., and Joyce Suvoski and her husband, Dave, of Waterbury; four grandchildren, Jason, Jared, Jill and Dave Jr.; and her four great-grandchildren, Jack, Jaiden, Mason and Dave III.
A graveside service for family and friends was held at noon on Monday, Nov. 19, at Mount St. Peter Cemetery in Derby, Conn.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the donor’s favorite charity or the Diabetes or Cancer Society.
The Marchand Funeral Home of Pepperell was in charge of arrangements.
