PATRICIA (PAT) WASHBURN JUBY (1920-2011)
Juby was born in Waterville KS and attended Tampa University. While in Florida, she was inspired by Rufus Nims and the Sarasota style of Modernist houses championed by Paul Rudolph and others. She moved to Raleigh with husband Richard in 1956. She was the first woman realtor in Raleigh and recalled, "people didn't take to that too well at first." She remained in real estate for nearly 60 years as head of her own firm, Pat Juby, Inc.
With good friend Tyrus Robert (TR, or Spike) Spinella, she designed and built modern houses all around Raleigh. Juby achieved more firsts: the first woman developer in Raleigh, the first women Modernist design-build firm in Raleigh; the first woman on the Raleigh Board of Realtors.
