Born on October 8, 1952, in Rutland, Vermont, she was the daughter of the late Raymond and Ruth (Brilyea ) DeLong.
Mary attended Hudson Falls High School.
On July 29, 1970, she married Terry Hubbard in Kingsbury.
For many years, Mary was a deli worker at Walmart on Route 9 in Queensbury and at Valero’s Convenient Store, just off exit 17. At Valero’s, she had a steady following of customers who would ask just for her to help them out. In her younger years, while working at Gurney Lane, she would babysit up to 12 children at a time, because of the love that she shared with them and the wonderful home cooking, many of the children she helped raise refer to her as Mom or Meme. Mary took pride in making home cooked meals for family and friends. She will be remembered by all for being the kind of person who would brighten up a room, if you were down, she could bring you back up. She was a loving, caring matriarch of the family, that could rule with an iron fist if necessary.
In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by an infant son, Ricky Hubbard and her sister, Joanne Jenkins.
She is survived by her loving husband of 43, Terry Hubbard of South Glens Falls; her children, Terry Hubbard and his wife, Thelea of Indiana, Billie Joe Chambers and her husband Butch, Michael Hubbard and his wife, Crystal and Meredith Robbins and her husband, Chris, all of South Glens Falls; her grandchildren, Ricky, Sara, Tara, Dylan, Tyler, Cody and Mariya; three great grandchildren, Fisher, Hunter and Jhetta; her siblings, Raymond DeLong, Anne Corty, Linda Sumner, Rickie DeLong, Angelo DeLong, Gary DeLong and Dennis DeLong; and several nieces, nephews and cousins; and her pug puppies, Molly, Baby and Jema.
Friends may call Tuesday from 4 to 6 p.m., at the Carleton Funeral Home, Inc., 68 Main Street in Hudson Falls.
Burial will be in the spring at Union Cemetery in the town of Fort Edward.
