UGRD Arts & Sciences '86
Mary Gerwe Jubb ’86, a resident of San Francisco who fought a courageous, 8 1/2 year battle with cancer, lost that battle on June 7, 2014. Everyone who knew her was inspired by her bravery and indomitable fighting spirit. She was 50 years old. In her last days at the UCSF Medical Center she was supported by a loving group of family and friends: her husband Paul Jubb, their children Sam, age 12, and Darcy, age 10, her parents Barbara Gerwe M.A. ’84, M.A. ’95 and Gene Gerwe, her siblings Gretchen, David, Peter, Sara, Kate, and Margaret Gerwe ’88 and their spouses, and many friends.
Mary and Paul were married in England in on August 1, 1998 and lived in Datchet and Windsor, England until 2005, when they moved to San Francisco. She was born in Davenport, Iowa and moved with her family to California in 1968. The family lived in Monte Sereno, when Mary attended Los Gatos High School and Santa Clara University. She had a successful career in marketing for British Airways and Kikkoman, USA.
Mary will be remembered by her family and friends as a loving, outgoing person, full of laughter; who lit up a room with her presence. She loved her nickname "Gorgeous", as well as cooking, tending her orchids, and planning parties. But most of all she loved her husband, her children and her extended family. That love was returned without reserve.
