Regina (Shuber) Stare, 86,

Regina (Shuber) Stare, 86, of Hopedale passed away peacefully, June 7, 2016 with her family by her side. She was born one of four children, born to the late Charles and Adelina (Pettinelli) Shuber and was the beloved wife of the late Jean Stare who passed away in 1992. Regina was predeceased by her siblings, Paul Shuber, Marquerite Maeder and Carol Usher.
Regina will forever be remembered by her devoted daughters and their families; Jackie Walker and her husband Michael and two sons Trevor and Derek, Jeanette Tweed and her husband Jim and daughter Lauren and son Daniel. Regina also had a loving relationship with her many nieces and nephews and their families.
Regina was born and raised in Milford, MA and lived her entire married life in Hopedale MA. She graduated from Milford High School and earned her teaching degree from Worcester State University. Regina also obtained her Master’s in Education. 
She began her teaching career in Milford, and after 39 years of teaching, retired in 1992 from the Hopedale Jr. and Sr. High School. Regina loved reading, challenging crossword puzzles, her bingo friends, and regular trips to Foxwoods. During her long career, she touched the lives of so many of her students.
Regina not only taught in the classroom, but was active in leading school drama productions, student yearbook groups and class trips…not an easy feat with high school students! Regina touched the lives of many people with her generosity and maintained her trademark sense of humor all the way to the end.

A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 10 A.M Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, on Hopedale St in Hopedale MA. The burial will follow in the Hopedale Village Cemetery in Hopedale MA.
Calling hours will be held Thursday from 4 to 7 P.M.

Guest Book

Having just witnessed a class filled with AP Literature seniors, now finishing the classic novel “Rebecca”, a nod must be given to the most impactful educator I ever met. Mrs. Stare guided us through this work in 1988-89, and now, some 35 years later, I can still see her at the head of the classroom, red book in hand, helping us fall in love with words and phrases. She lives on every day in many a heart. For me, she will always be the greatest of all time. Miss her.

Jeanette, Jackie, and family, please know that my thoughts are with you at your time of loss. I have fond memories of time spent around your wonderful parents, at the house and on mystery dinners. They don't make them like Regina Stare anymore, much as they never made another one like Jean!

Thank you Mrs. Stare for making a huge difference in my life. I wish I could have told you all the things I pretended not to learn but kept them tucked away in my memories for future use. I am successful today, in part because of you. I really was listening when you thought I was not paying attention in class.RIP

Such a bright, passionate and motivating educator. I am fortunate to have been in her classroom and learned from one of the greats. I will never forget a story she shared about 4 students from another class who had come to class late for an exam that she was administering. They said their car had a flat tire, thus the reason for being late. She separated them into the four corners of the classroom and gave each a pencil and piece of paper, asking that they write which tire was flat. Needless to say, their answers did not match up. What a bright and sometimes sassy gal. Personally she used to tell me that the Aqua Net hairspray that I often carried more than my books was going to kill me some day. What a gem of a lady. Rest easy dear lady and thank you for influencing my life.
Karen Villani, class of 1987

Thank you, Mrs. Stare, for insisting on good grammar, correct spelling and proper punctuation. All of these seem to be a lost art these days.
