Phylaine Rubenstein
Waterford- Phylaine "Lanie" Rubenstein, age 70, of Waterford, passed away peacefully on May 3, 2011, in her home after a brave battle with cancer. She leaves behind her beloved husband of 51 years, Samuel Rubenstein. She was predeceased by her parents, Harry and Henrietta Phillips.
Lanie and Sam owned and operated Marcus Jeans in New London for 49 years and just recently retired. She leaves behind many loved ones: Her son Richard Rubenstein and his wife Jeannie and their children Chelsea and Cody; her son Jeffrey Rubenstein and his son Randy; her sister and brother-in-law Bill and Beverly Sims Okeson of Storrs, CT; her niece Lisa Sims Farnham, her husband Len, and their children Jake and Allison of Dedham, MA; her nephew Michael Sims, his wife Megan and their children Logan and Laila of Cleveland, OH. Family was everything to Lanie, especially her grandchildren.
Lanie's "hobby" was helping others. She was selfless and always put others first. She served for twenty years as a volunteer at the Lawrence and Memorial Hospital. She adored the UCONN Ladies Huskies and either watched or recorded every game. She also had a love for flowers and her garden.
There will be a gathering of family and friends from 5-6 P.M on Monday at the Thomas L. Neilan & Sons Funeral Home, 12 Ocean Ave., New London, followed by a funeral service at 6 P.M. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Vitas Hospice, 628 Hebron Ave., Glastonbury, CT 06033.
