Dorothy LaFay Babbitt age 76, of Stockton California passed away on 5 November 2020 in Stockton
California during a scheduled dialysis treatment.
Mrs. Babbitt is preceded by her Father Clarence Hutchinson, Mother Jewel Andrews, Sisters Carol
Chevies, Gwendolyn Williams and Husband of 50 years Milton Marcus Babbitt.
Born July 8, 1944 in Monroe Louisiana and during the Great Migration, Dorothy with her mother and other
family members relocated to Alameda County, Oakland, California, where she attended elementary and
Junior high school. During her high school years of 1960 and 1961 Dorothy lived with her Mother in the
Counties of Los Angeles. She attended Centennial High school where she met and developed a log
lasting friendship with Ms. Melva White. Between 1961-1965, Dorothy would become a single mother of
five kids prior to meeting Milton M. Babbitt 1969. After dating for a short time, they were married on
March 12, 1971. Dorothy was a wife, mother of six, and a homemaker for many years; after her kids were
older, she found enjoyment working with the Oakland Unified school district as a cook in the cafeteria of
E. Morris Cox elementary and finish with Elizabeth Sherman Elementary as the head lunch clerk.
Dorothy time here on earth was a mixture of good times and some hard times; time filled with joy, laughter
and some tears. She knew that this lifetime would soon come to an end and that she would then be
reunited with her husband, mother and sisters and a long list of family and friends in the life after.
Dorothy is survived by six children: Alvin and Calvin Patterson, Angela, Clarence and Ronald Thompkins,
and Trina Babbitt, 20 grandchildren and 29 great grandchildren.
