Obituary of Rose Mary Straube

    A loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, she peacefully entered into rest on July 1, 2024, age 94.

    She was predeceased by her husband of 64 years, Bertram “Bud” Straube, and by her son-in-law, John Dragic. She is survived by her children, Linda Straube, Rita (Charles) Corbett, and David (Maryann) Straube; grandchildren, Amanda (Wes Kemmerer), Evan Dragic, Daniel Corbett, Annalise (Kevin Zhang) Dragic, Colleen Corbett, Jennifer Straube, and Kyle Straube; great-grandchildren, Brinley and Rowan Kemmerer; brother, George (Lucretia) Resch; sister, Nancy Bischoping; sisters-in-law, Rosemary Resch, Barbara Straube, and Mary Ann Delano; her dear nieces and nephews and so very many special friends. 

    Born and raised in Scottsville, NY, Rose Mary grew up on a farm. She graduated high school and was employed as a receptionist. She met Bud, married and they moved to Webster, which she called home   for almost seventy years.  An amazing baker and cook, Rose Mary loved to entertain, to laugh and delight in the company of others. She enjoyed puzzles and was always ready for a game of cards, Bingo or Rummikub, she loved to win. She enjoyed sports, Red Wing games, cheering for the Yankees or Coach K and the Blue Devils of Duke and never missed making her weekly NFL picks. Over time she was involved in the local community including activities such as Girl Scouts, Woman’s Club of Webster, keeping score at little league games, square dancing and being a founding member and active parishioner of St Paul’s Church, including until recently attending daily mass.

    Truly defined by Family, Friends and Faith Rose Mary was an inspiration and source of comfort to all, particularly her godchildren and the children for whom she cared over the years. Family wasn’t just  “blood relatives” to Rose Mary but everyone she came in contact with in her day to day life. She was  loved by all and she loved all. We will miss her greatly and everyone she touched will remember her  loving, generous and caring spirit. She was a true example of a faithful life well lived.

    Friends and family may call 6-8 PM Friday, July 26 at Willard H. Scott Funeral Home, 12 South Ave., Webster. A Mass to celebrate her life and faith will be held at 10:00 AM Saturday, July 27 at St. Paul’s Church, 783 Hard Rd., Webster, followed by Interment at Webster Union Cemetery. Memorials may be directed to St. Paul’s Church, 783 Hard Rd., Webster, NY 14580.
