Obituary of Beverly C. Laub

Beverly Ann (Cappelletti) Laub, of Falls Church, Va., died on June 26, 2023 at the age of 79. Born in Waterbury, Ct., to an immigrant family, she is preceded most recently in death in 2020 by her mother Louise Cappelletti-Ingala whom she cared for at home, and by her husband, Mike Laub in 2021. She is survived by brothers Fred (in NY) and Ronald (in MD) and by married sons and grandchildren: Peter (Jenny Nowlin; Michael, Oskar) and Brian (Christina Conell; Alexander, Max). 

Bev graduated from Marymount College in 1963 and worked in Washington as an executive secretary with the American Banking Association and later in Boston as an executive secretary for the National Wildlife Federation. In 1979 she moved to Falls Church with Mike to raise their children, and later worked as a secretary for two pastors at Christ Crossman United Methodist Church. A long-time member of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church of Alexandria, her faith was central to her life as was her extended family and maintaining Italian traditions such as the 7-fishes Christmas Eve Vigil dinner. At such an event, Bev was happiest hosting a noisy, crowded, festive table of family and friends with music and singing to follow. 

Bev was a generous and active member of the community, singing in her church choir, participating in bible groups, book groups, volunteer outreach groups, and as an alto and board member of the New Dominion Chorale. She also joined the National Philharmonic Chorale for singing trips to China and in Italy, where she visited relatives. Bev cultivated close friendships all her life, becoming a central and beloved figure in the neighborhoods where she lived. 

Funeral mass will be held Monday, July 10 at 11:00 a.m. at Blessed Sacrament Church, (1427 W Braddock Rd, Alexandria, VA 22302). Burial to follow at Oakwood Cemetery, Falls Church.

Music was an important part of Bev’s life. In lieu of flowers, family and friends are invited to donate to the music ministry at Blessed Sacrament. Donation checks (with “music ministry” on the memo line) may be made payable to Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, Attn: John McCrary, 1427 W. Braddock Road. Alexandria, VA 22302
