Anna Mae Aubé passed away with her family by her side on April 12. She was born November 27, 1926 in The Bronx, NY to Bertha and Christopher Daly.
She followed her beloved husband, Raymond just 85 days after his death.
She is survived by her children; John Aubé, Debbie Ribar, Robert Aubé and grandchildren, Brandon Ribar, Casey Ribar, Nellie Aubé, Julia Aubé, Megan Aubé, Bryan Aubé and Nicole Aubé.
She graduated from the College of St. Vincent majoring in French which translated into her first job at the United Nations as an interpreter.
She married Ray in 1951 and after a few years and persistent coaxing from her Father-in-law, Jack, moved west to California where she quickly became an active member of St. Simon’s Parish as President of the Women’s Club and other associations devoted to the community.
After retiring from the Copper Industry, Ray and Anna Mae bought two Hallmark card stores, one in Sunnyvale and the other in San Jose.
In 1975 Anna Mae transitioned into the travel industry and eventually started their business, The Travel Place. While running the agency, Anna Mae indulged her passion, golf, whenever she could find the time and joined her 18 hole group at Palo Alto Hills Country Club where they were members. They traveled all around the world combining business and pleasure hosting golf groups to the most unusual destinations.
In 1992 they sold the business and retired to Tucson where the warm weather, golf and cherished friends made Arizona their home.
Feeling the pull of family they sold their house and returned to California in 2011 where they lived out their days in Davis near Bob, Joanne and the girls, enjoying the beautiful lake view chock full of sea birds, swans and small sailboats.
Anna Mae will be buried with her husband at the Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Bruno.
A service will be held at St. Simon Parish at 3pm, May 20th.
