Carolyn Margaret Beach Kubitschek, age 83, of Mountain Home, passed away at her home on March 29, 2020. Due to the current Covid-19 situation, a Celebration of Carolyn’s life will be held at a later date. Cremation is under the care of Rost Funeral Home, McMurtrey Chapel.

Carolyn was born September 6, 1936 to Jim and Hattie Beach of Mountain Home.

The Beach’s had a chicken ranch on 40 acres off of East American Legion Road. Carolyn was the youngest of Jim and Hattie’s clan of four, (Deloris, Harold and Lorraine). All of the children attended what is now Bennett High School.

As part of her high school curriculum, she was employed by the McLaughlin Law Office, with Bob, Mike and Terry Ratliff, which spanned 40 years. She was acclaimed as the finest Para Legal in the state. During that time on her own initiative, thru the University of Idaho, completed the course work, gained a Law Degree of Jurisprudence by correspondence, and with honors.

She was married August 15, 1979, to Don R. Kubitschek. They met at Ellen Wetherell’s wedding reception, and it was love at first sight.

In her leisure time, she enjoyed being a member of Business and Professional Women in the 1960’s and 70’s. She traveled throughout the state, embracing the organization. She enjoyed reading, especially the works of John Grisham.

On the recreational side, only thru perseverance on her part, she became a slalom water skier and a smooth snow skier. She could perform like a ballerina.

Carolyn’s idea of the outdoors and camping did not come easy. Her idea of camping out was the Hotel / Motel route.

Christmas was probably her favorite season. It gave her the opportunity to entertain and share love with her family with a beautifully decorated home for the holiday season. Christmas Eve she loved having her grandchildren in her home and serving the annual prime rib meal, prepared by JoAnn Aguirre, enjoyed by family and friends.

We also traveled with grandkids to dance recitals throughout the State of Idaho for Kristen and soccer for Aaron in the youth soccer program

Our travels in 1985 -1995 took us to the Oregon Coast, near Lincoln City and Yachats. Ten years we enjoyed staying at Dobson Ranch Inn. From 2000 to 2010 we traveled the “Snow Bird” route to Mesa, Arizona. We loved those years.

The highlight of Carolyn’s life was her only child, Deb. Their mother/daughter relationship was like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Always managed to be together if only for a minute or two. The two were special to many people because of their closeness to each other.

She is survived by her husband, Don R. Kubitschek. She was preceded in death by her beloved daughter Debbie Hofer, and her parents and her brothers and sister.

Carolyn spent her final days at home. Arrangements are in the care of Rost Funeral Home, McMurtrey Chapel.
