Health care consultant

July 06, 2008|By Steven Stanek

Carol A. Lubinsky, a health care benefits consultant and administrator who worked with major Baltimore-area companies, died Thursday of complications from meningitis at St. Agnes Hospital. The longtime Ellicott City resident was 59.

Born and raised in Johnstown, Pa., she graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1971 with a bachelor's degree in English and a minor in journalism.

After college, Ms. Lubinsky moved to Cockeysville and took a job with an employment agency. She later embarked on a 20-year career as a health care benefits consultant and eventually worked with the Hergett Co., London Fog and COB Inc., among others. She worked with the companies to improve health care payment systems and ensure that employees received benefits.

Ms. Lubinsky, an avid impressionist painter who loved arts and crafts, launched an online crafting Web site with her sisters in 2002. The site, youcancraft.com, provides crafting tips and once included a store and a newsletter.

"She's always been sewing or crafting on one or another," said a sister, Anna M. Hardy of Ellicott City.

Ms. Lubinsky had been battling bacterial meningitis for several years. She had been in a local rehabilitation facility before suffering a major stroke last month.

A memorial service will be held Saturday at the Witzke Family Funeral Home, 4112 Old Columbia Pike in Ellicott City, at a time not yet decided.

In addition to Mrs. Hardy, she is survived by her mother, Fern Leech, and another sister, Linda S. Leech, both of Randallstown. A marriage to Lenny Lubinsky ended in divorce.
