Aloha “Snooky” Tubbs, 65, of Williamsport passed peacefully at The Gateway UPMC on March 2nd, 2023. Born on Jan 5th, 1958 in Miami, FL, she was known for her bubbly and outgoing personality, as well as her love for fishing, NASCAR, and her family. Named after her mother, Aloha, her dream was always to go to Hawaii. While she never got the opportunity to visit the state due to health complications later in her life, her ashes will be spread amongst the blue waters of the Pacific, and she can finally call Hawaii her final resting place.
Aloha’s presence on earth will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. A celebration of life with close family will be held to honor and remember her kind and kindred spirit.
Aloha is survived by her 3 children, Tara (Edward) Tubbs Silva of Williamsport, Ryan Tubbs of Williamsport, and Timothy Taylor of Miami, FL, as well as her grandson Kane Silva; brother, Charles Welch of Jersey Shore; sisters, Karma Welch of Jersey Shore, Donna Welch of Jersey Shore, Susan Welch-Reeder of Montoursville. She was predeceased by a sister Mary Welch.

I never met Aloha personally, but knew her through our team on a game she played called Fishing Clash. The family was kind enough to let one of our members know of her illness and passing, and also of this site. I’m grateful for the opportunity to write a few words in condolence from this stranger Aloha considered a friend.
She was a huge part of our team there (X Prodigies) for several years, along with several others. She wasn’t just a teammate, she became our friend. We all miss her terribly and are saddened to learn of her passing. She was funny, she was playful, and she was kind – but did not hesitate to give slackers the boot (“the Axe Lady Cometh!”). We had a lot of laughs together because of her. It’s a rare thing to have people bond and develop friendships over a game, but Aloha was a rare person. We all loved her.
Please accept my most sincere condolences. Peace and love to the family.

To all her family and friends,
I have been in contact with “Pixie” ,as we called her, almost daily for over three years as we played Fishing Clash together. She has been a treasure to her friends in our clan. She talked a lot about her family and how she loved fishing. She gave tons of moral support to members of our group as they went through their storms in life and we did our best to be there for her as well. She and I talked person to person as well and hoped to meet when she came close to my area. Her presence, conversation and wit will be deeply missed by all her friends in X Prodigies clan. But I think that I (Teuf or Teufelhunden) will miss her most of all as we had a special connection. I have been blessed to know this special lady and I hope you continue to feel the love for each of her family that I know she felt in her heart. God Bless you all.

I am also a member of the X Prodigies clan on Fishing Clash Like the others, I never had the opportunity to personally meet Pixie, but I was able to chat with her almost every weekly over the last 3 years. She was warm, intelligent, funny and could give as well as take with a bunch of guys from the clan never backing down. She was also very proud of her family to who I extend my deepest condolences. Pixie you will be missed.
