Ina W. Hubard, a homemaker who had been an active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution throughout her life, died April 13 of heart failure at St. Joseph Medical Center.

The Lutherville resident was 94.

Ina Walker, the daughter of a career Navy officer and a homemaker, was born and raised in Annapolis.

She attended the Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School and graduated from the old Gunston Hall School in 1934.

Two years later, she married Randolph Bolling Hubard, a West Point graduate and career Army officer. He died in 1991.

"How he agreed to get married at the Naval Academy, I'll never know," said their daughter, Cynthia Hubard Spangler of Memphis, Tenn.

Mrs. Hubard, who had lived in Fayetteville, N.C., and Europe during her husband's Army career, settled in Owings Mills in 1962. Since 2005, she had lived at the Brightwood retirement community in Lutherville.

She was an active member throughout her life of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Daughters of the Confederacy. She was a former president of the Maryland chapter of the National Society of the Colonial Dames in America and had served the national society as its flag chairwoman for years.

Mrs. Hubard was also the Colonial Dames Maryland chapter representative and fundraiser for Sulgrave Manor, George Washington's ancestral home in Oxfordshire, England. She was also a past president of the Women's Committee of Historic Hampton and a member of the board of Mount Clare, the Carroll Park home in Southwest Baltimore of Charles Carroll the Barrister.

Mrs. Hubard, who was an accomplished needleworker and seamstress, made her own clothes for years. She was also an avid gardener and flower arranger, and had belonged to the Green Spring Valley Garden Club.

She was a member of the Mount Vernon Club and the Green Spring Valley Hunt Club.

Mrs. Hubard was a member of St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Owings Mills, where a memorial service was conducted April 19.

Also surviving are a son, John Bolling Hubard of Harbor Springs, Mich.; three grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
