Obituary

Carolyn E. Babcock
August 8, 1928-October 13, 2017
Carolyn Elizabeth (Davis) Babcock, aged 89, passed away
peacefully on October 13, 2017. She was a beloved Mother,
Grandmother and Great-grandmother. Carolyn was born in
Glenwood, Alabama. Her family later moved to Luverne and
then to Troy where Carolyn grew up. Carolyn graduated
from high school Valedictorian. However, she was so shy she
asked her teacher to have someone else give the Valedictorian
speech.

Carolyn moved to Montgomery to attend secretarial school
where she lived with her brother Billy and sister-in-law
Elizabeth. Carolyn and a friend attended a dance where the
military men also went. That’s where she met Walter. They had
a whirl-wind romance and married 3 months later. After Walter’s
term in the service was completed they moved back to Walter’s
home in Denver where they raised their 4 children.

Carolyn’s main concern and top priority were her children.
For the first 10 years of their marriage Carolyn stayed
home with her children. But, as so often happens, she had to
start a career in the working world. So, she made sure she
applied for a job that was close to home, had good benefits and
a pension (smart woman!). She began work in 1962 at Fort Logan
Mental Health Center in the administrative services arena. She
later moved to the Colorado Division of Mental Health and retired
in 1989. She was a consummate professional and highly
respected by everyone with whom she worked.

Carolyn loved taking care of her family. She was always available
to watch the grandchildren and loved to snuggle with them at
night and read them stories. She made each and every one of her
children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren feel special. She
is survived by her four children, Teri Clardy (Jim), Dan (Julie Ann),
Deb Brown (Doug), Julie Beth Babcock (David Sislowski), her nine
grandchildren, her fourteen great grandchildren, her sister
Joanne Watkins, and brothers Cass Davis and T. Bob Davis (Janis).
She will leave a tremendous hole in everyone’s heart.
