Joanne N. Hubbard, 73, operated antiques shop


Joanne N. Hubbard, who for more than a decade operated the Antique Exchange near her Roland Park home, died Wednesday of complications from pneumonia at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. She was 73.

Mrs. Hubbard opened her shop at 318 Wyndhurst Ave. in 1981, and operated it until 1992. The business was an extension of her interests, which included gardening, fine art and the symphony.

Born Joanne Hileman Nottingham in Baltimore and raised in the Ashburton neighborhood, she was a 1947 graduate of Eastern High School. The next year, she married Baltimore attorney Herbert H. Hubbard and enrolled at Loyola College, where she studied for two years.

After college, Mrs. Hubbard worked for several years as a commercial artist. She was a flower show judge from 1955 to 1966 in Carroll County, where she and her husband owned a small farm near Uniontown.

The couple lived in Roland Park until two years ago, when they moved to Charlesbrooke in Baltimore County. In retirement, they spent winters in Naples, Fla. She was a member of Baltimore Country Club, Baltimore Museum of Art and Walters Art Museum, and the Woman's Club of Roland Park.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. today in the chapel of Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, 5603 N. Charles St.

In addition to her husband, Mrs. Hubbard is survived by two daughters, Melissa H. O'Donnell of Jacksonville, Fla., and Alison Hubbard of Potomac; a brother, David Nottingham of Westminster; and two grandchildren.
