Miriam G. Dubuque

Miriam G. Dubuque, a resident of Cataumet, died on July 31 at the age of 93.

The daughter of Joseph W. Gibbs and Edna (Bowen) Gibbs, Ms. Dubuque was born and raised in Waltham. She graduated from Waltham High School and later attended Wheelock College.

After college, Ms. Dubuque taught in Weston and Falmouth, where she was a kindergarten teacher.

She was a member of many clubs and associations, including the Falmouth chapter of P.E.O. International, the Cataumet Club, the Bourne Women’s Club, and the Aptucxet Garden Club. She also was a parishioner of Cataumet United Methodist Church.

Ms. Dubuque wasn’t afraid to voice her opinions on town affairs. In 1995, she spoke out against the construction of a telecommunications tower near Scraggy Neck Extension.

She leaves her children, Jeffrey S. Ogilvie of Needham, Bruce R. Ogilvie of Saudi Arabia, and Elizabeth Dubuque of Harwich; her grandchildren, Jessica, Aaron, Robbie, and Audrey Ogilvie; and a sister, Josephine Gibbs.

She was the wife of the late Robert S. Ogilvie and Gerald P. Dubuque; mother of the late Stephen E. Ogilvie, Penelope F. Ogilvie, and Charles L. Ogilvie; and sister of the late Margaret Grenda, who died in 2003.

Her ashes will be buried in the Grove Hill Cemetery in Waltham among her other family members.

A memorial service will be held later this month at the Cataumet United Methodist Church.

Donations in Ms. Dubuque’s memory can be made to the Cataumet United Methodist Church, PO Box 812, Cataumet, MA 02536; or the Bourne Conservation Trust, PO Box 457, Cataumet, MA 02534.
