Ethel Kubista

Born in New England, North Dakota
Resided in Madras, Oregon


Ethel Mae Jones Kubista was born to Wayne Jones and Mildred Dubisar Jones May 13, 1942 in New England, North Dakota. She was the oldest of their three children.

In time Wayne passed away and Mildred married Arthur Larson which began their life on a farm in Scranton, North Dakota; this was also the beginning of a life of service to her God Jehovah. She found great joy in sharing the good news of the kingdom with others in the ministry. As Ethels’ love of Jehovah grew in her heart so did her love of a young man in the congregation, Donald Eugene Kubista. They married June 7, 1958. She was a loving and committed wife for 55 years.

Donald and Ethel moved to Madras, Oregon in 1963 and went on to have two sons, Eugene Donald in 1964 and Travis Lee in 1974. Ethel was a devoted mother. These two loving sons provided Donald and Ethel with four beautiful grandchildren, the icing on the cake; Chinook, Shawnia, Merriah and Shanoah. How Ethel loved her grandchildren!

Ethel was a wonderful homemaker, known for her warmest hospitality and homemade pies and other desserts. Everyone felt welcome and cared for in her home. She was a hard worker and passed that on to her children.
Ethel passed away on November 10th, 2017. She was a dearly beloved mother, big sister, auntie, cousin, niece, grandma and friend. She will be greatly missed.
