Mrs. Melvin Gubrud Dies at Hospital

Mrs. Melvin Gubrud, 1611 N. Hastings Way, known to most Eau Claire baseball fans as "Ma Tracy," died at the Luther hospital at 7 a.m. today. She had been a resident here 23 years, and formerly lived in the Town of Howard, Chippewa County.
Stokes and Sons have charge of funeral arrangements.
Mrs. Gubrud, 59, although a double amputee as a result of diabetes remained a staunch baseball fan to the last.
She seldom missed Eau Claire Braves games at Carson Park while her health permitted. She attended games in recent years in a wheel chair.
She is survived by two sons, Henry and Shirlyn Tracy, both of Eau Claire.
Mrs. Gubrud's interest in baseball brought her friendships with such managers and players as Andy Cohen, Bill Adair, Billy Bruton, Joe Just, Wes Covington, Bruno Haas, and Henry Aaron.
She received a season pass from the Eau Claire Braves each year. In recent years she made an occasional trip to Milwaukee to see the Braves.
