New Orleans Times-Picayune, LA Nov. 5, 2001
CITA DENNIS HUBBELL, 73, Algiers activist, nurse
Cita Dennis Hubbell, a community activist in Algiers Point, died Thursday of cancer at her home. She was 73. Mrs. Hubbell was born in Algiers and lived in Massachusetts, Virginia, Florida, Maryland, California and Germany before returning to Algiers when her husband retired from the Navy more than 25 years ago. She became a community leader, fighting to reopen the Algiers Point Branch Library after it had been closed for almost 10 years. The early 20th century Andrew Carnegie grant library had been damaged by Hurricane Betsy in 1965. "It was in deplorable condition . . . It had been closed �temporarily� for 10 years," said Louis Aubert, a former president and founding member of the Algiers Point Association. Mrs. Hubbell helped persuade city leaders to repair it, he said. Then-city librarian Eugene Wright and other officials commended Mrs. Hubbell for her leadership of the Algiers Point Association library committee, placing her name on a rededication plaque. Mrs. Hubbell and her husband, George Hubbell, along with Aubert founded the Algiers Point Association in 1973. The organization promotes the historic preservation of houses, won National Historic District status for the Point and improves the neighborhood�s social and living conditions, Aubert said. George Hubbell was its first president. Mrs. Hubbell also campaigned to keep the Algiers Point-Canal Street ferry in operation despite threatened cuts. She attended meetings of the Greater New Orleans Mississippi River Bridge Authority so consistently that the chairman reserved a chair for her, said Mrs. Hubbell�s son, Daniel Hubbell. She graduated from Martin Behrman High School and Charity Hospital School of Nursing. As a registered nurse, she worked in the neonatal intensive care units at Charity Hospital, JoEllen Smith Memorial Hospital and F. Edward Hebert Hospital. She also worked at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Most recently, she managed the health clinic at the Hale Boggs Federal Building. She was a member of Sigma Alpha Chi National Honor Society and the American Association of Occupational Health Nurses and served on the school board of Holy Name of Mary School. Survivors include her husband, George Edward Hubbell; three sons, Paul Alan Hubbell of Los Angeles and Philip Dennis and Daniel John Hubbell; a daughter, Amy Maria Hubbell of San Francisco; and two grandsons. A memorial Mass will be said Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at Holy Name of Mary Catholic Church, 400 Verret St. The Hubbell family requests in lieu of flowers contributions to the Cancer Association of Greater New Orleans, 824 Elmwood Park Blvd., Room 240, New Orleans, 70123. Mothe Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

CITA D HUBBELL 02 Aug 1928 01 Nov 2001 (V) 70114 (New Orleans, Orleans, LA) (none specified) 549-64-7343 California
