A lovely tribute was written for her in the Libertyville Independent: "Mrs. Hubbard was a quiet, retiring home woman. In her younger days she was actively interested in church work, but as her home duties increased she was compelled to husband her limited strength and gave it all to her household. She was a particular and faultless housekeeper. No one could do the work for her as well as she could do it herself. She was always busy and always happy in the work of her home. She was a good wife and mother."
Edward died at the age of 91 in 1962. He is buried next to his dear Bertha in Lakeside Cemetery.
