Services will be held for Harriet “Hia” Dubin, 82, who passed away quietly in Woodstock on June 25 at the Cape Cod Synagogue, in Hyannis, Mass. at 10 a.m. on Friday June 29, followed by burial at Woodside Cemetery, Summer St., Yarmouthport, Mass. She was surrounded by family, during the final week of her life at Woodstock Terrace, where she was lovingly cared for the past two years.
Hia, daughter of Charles and Edith Seigal, was born in 1929 in Quincy, Mass and lived in the Boston area until she and her family moved to Cape Cod in the mid 1970s.
Hia was known as an outgoing and compassionate person and utilized these wonderful qualities in her friendships, social action and work. She began her career as an elementary school teacher and returned to graduate school in 1980 (joining her three children in school) for a Masters in Counseling. She worked many years as a therapist and her skills and compassion were evident in her work and in her relationships.
She and her husband, Paul Dubin, (deceased 2005) were active in the Cape Cod Synagogue in Hyannis, Mass., where Hia was the president of the Sisterhood and held many regional positions. Hia was also a supporter of the arts and higher education. She was an active participant of The Cape Cod Arts Foundation and Cape Cod Community College.
Hia is survived by her sister, Sheila Asher and brother in law, Richard Asher, of Boca Raton, Fla; and her brother, Dr. Alan Seigal, and companion, Naomi Cohan, of Mashpee, MA; three children, Sheril and John Madden of Berkeley California, Joy Dubin Grossman and Jim Grossman of S. Woodstock and Michael and Masami Dubin of W. Barnstable, Mass; and seven grandchildren. The grandchildren range in age from 11 to 19; each one had a special relationship with their “Boba.”
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in memory of Hia to Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, 3 Patti Page Way, Centerville, MA 02632.
