Carolee Adele Webster passed away peacefully at home on the morning of March 7th in Argyle, NY.
To send flowers in memory of Carolee Adele Webster, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
She was born in Queens, NY on August 15, 1940 to Henry and Carol Nubel.
Her middle name came from her father’s sister, the Hollywood film actress Adele Jergens. She graduated at 16 from high school in Queens, NY and attended Packer College, where she earned an Associate’s degree in Secretarial Studies and was elected the President of her class. One of her first jobs was working as a Secretary at the prestigious Rockefeller Foundation in Manhattan. In 1971, the Websters settled in Argyle, NY where she served as a Secretary at Argyle Central School for more than 25 years, until she retired in 1998.
Her great passions were reading, gardening, dining on gourmet food with friends, hiking, ball room dancing and bargain hunting. Retirement gave her and Robert, her husband of 53 years, more time for adventures in Europe, Cyprus, West Africa, India, Japan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Australia, and Fiji. Carolee’s appreciation for the fine arts led her to serve as a volunteer Docent at the Hyde Museum in Glens Falls. She will be remembered as a loyal friend, and an active, generous person who cared greatly about the local community.
She is survived by her husband, Robert and their two children, Craig Webster (currently of Fishers, Indiana) and Valerie Gueye (currently of Accra, Ghana), their spouses and their five children and brother Roger and sister-in-law Lindi Nubel (Long Island).
