IN MEMORIAM: P. Elliott DuBois, 87;

Taught Music For 27 Years At Worcester

P. Elliott DuBois

WORCESTER – P. Elliott DuBois, 87, whose 27-year career teaching music at Worcester Central School, starting in 1961, would touch hundreds of lives, passed away at 10:45 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021, at Fox Nursing Home in Oneonta.

Thankfully, the family was able to be at his side at various times during his final days before “going home,” for which he was prepared and eagerly awaiting.

Paul Elliott, known as Elliott because his father’s name was Paul, was born in Binghamton to Paul Jasper DuBois and Imogene (Ackley) DuBois on Dec. 28, 1933. Later came the birth of his only sibling, Marion (DuBois) Butler (husband, Steve Butler).
