Barbara Ann Kubic, age 77, of Chesapeake, VA, passed away on September 3, 2023 following a short battle with cancer. Barbara was born March 4, 1946 in Milwaukee, WI to Robert C. and Marcheta (Rudolph) Thust, who preceded her in death.
Barbara met and married the love of her life, Mark B Kushner, in the DC area. They lived in Ft Washington, MD where they raised their daughters, Chantel Kushner-Samuel (Barry) (of Chesapeake, VA) and Janine Kushner (of Durham, NC). After Mark’s passing, Barbara married Douglas J Kubic and they lived in Sun City, AZ for 8 years. After Doug’s passing, Barbara returned to the Tidewater area to be closer to her girls.
Barbara is survived by her daughters, her sisters Susan D’Amico (of Fremont, NC) and Mary Guptill (Dan) (of Smithfield, VA) and many nieces/nephews and grand-nieces/nephews. While Barbara had no grandchildren, she adored all of her grand-dogs.
Barbara graduated from Nathan Hale High School in Milwaukee and went on to attend Wise State University. The bulk of her career was as a bookkeeper with the VA Department of Corrections.
In her free time, Barbara enjoyed traveling, spending time at Sandbridge Beach, volunteering, and creating miniature dollhouse scenes. She cherished moments spent with her daughters and grand-dogs, as well as with friends.
