SUNY Ulster Foundation Scholarship in memory of Ellen Dubin

Darlene L. Pfeiffer Scholarship sponsors this award in memory of Ellen Dubin. Born on Oct. 5, 1926 in Kingston; she was a daughter of the late Isaac and Jeanette Kaplan Kunst, and sister of the late Faith Kunst Ziff. She and her loving late husband of 60 years, Milton J. Dubin, provided a caring and beautiful upbringing for our family. As well respected, talented, and successful as Ellen was at her profession as an interior designer, she was held in the highest regard as a mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, daughter, daughter-in-law, and friend. She also devoted time to her synagogue — Congregation Emanuel of the Hudson Valley — its Sisterhood, Hadassah, and Youth Aliyah. Her greatest pride was her family to whom she was devoted; as wife to Milton, as mother to her children, David Dubin and his wife Nancy of New York City, and Brian Dubin and his wife Fran Curtis of New York City, and as grandmother to her adored grandson, Michael Dubin. She is also survived her niece, Gayle Ziff Aaronson, and her nephew, William Ziff, and many grand-nieces and grand-nephews. Over a life spanning 11 distinct decades, Ellen was elegant inside and out. Her kindness to strangers was consistently generous.
