Ruth Elizabeth Hubbard was born to Roselyn Agatha Kennedy and William Lane Kennedy on October 15, 1941, in Georgetown Guyana. She was the fifth of eleven children including 6 boys and 5 girls. She will be deeply missed by her younger sister Patsy and brother Michael who are currently residing in Guyana. Ruth, fondly known as "Liza" passed away peacefully in the early morning hours on Thursday, February 9th, 2023, in her home surrounded by her loved ones. Liza was raised in Georgetown, Guyana and attended Kingston Methodist High School. Liza got married to George Hubbard on August 29th, 1970, and became a devoted mother to her two lovely children: Reynold "AKA Terry" and Zita and stepchildren Diane and Gary. Liza then adopted and raised her nieces and nephews: Karen, Katty, Dion, Marlyn and Carlon. Liza was known as a very loving and caring woman. She was always seen with a smile on her face and loved to dance to reggae music. Liza was also a devoted grandmother to seven grandchildren Alana, Shaunella, Shaunda, Tiffany, Terrance, Tevin and Tashana. And a loving great-grandmother to five great-grandchildren: Shania, Breyanna, Nazir, Mahasin and Nauri. Liza migrated to the United States in 1987, where she obtained a job as a home caregiver to an elderly woman named Ms. Becky. In the year 1994, Liza then became a caretaker for one of Hollywood's most famous stars Barry Bostwick in upstate New York for ten years. Liza later moved to New Jersey in 1997 where she became a homemaker. She traveled around the united states supporting her eldest granddaughter Alana who was serving in the military at that time. In 2019 Liza moved to Florida with her son Reynold and her youngest granddaughter Tashana where she spent her retirement caring for her husband. Liza was known to have a big heart, her door was always open to everyone. She comforted and touched so many souls with her love and care. She was known for her delicious cooking. Anytime you were over at her house she's always cooking or baking. Some of her favorite foods to make were baked, cook-up and pepper pot. You can never go hungry around her. She absolutely loved cooking and cleaning her home. We would always say "Liza get some rest and stay out of the kitchen for one day!” “nah" and her words were "My days for resting would be the days that I meet my heavenly father." However, those days are now, and Liza is probably cooking for the Lord. Our amazing and loving Mother, Aunty Liza and Grandma Liza will be greatly missed. Today, we are comforted in knowing she has truly earned her crown and is resting in her new heavenly home in the love and care of our heavenly father. Gone but will never ever be forgotten. Keep Resting our Precious Liza.
