ISLE LA MOTTE: Our mother, Kathryn Babits passed to her heavenly home on Friday, February 25th, 2022. She was 88 years old.

Kathryn was born on October 7th, 1933, the daughter of Ruth Noonan Fleming and Pierce Fleming of Pittsford, Vermont.

Mom devoted her life to her three children, Colleen, Kenneth and David Babits. As the good Irish Catholic that she was, she worked hard to provide her children with everything she could.

Mom worked at IBM in Essex Junction, retiring after 22 years of service and moved to St. Albans to be with her daughter and son. Among the many activities of retired life, mom spent many hours with her grandchildren whom she loved deeply. She was a Eucharistic Minister at Holy Angels Church and a member of the Ladies of St. Anne, past member of the board of directors of Martha’s Kitchen, past Secretary of the Board of Incorporators at Northwestern Medical Center, as well as a volunteer for the Northwestern Medical Center. She was a proud member of the Georgia School Lunch team.

Mom enjoyed her friends and had many adventures including going to church, eating food, NASCAR, and playing cards being among her favorite things to do.

Mom was predeceased by both her parents, her grandson, Christopher Laframboise, her brother, Terrance and her stepmothe, Beatrice Fleming.

Kathryn is survived by her daughter, Colleen Edson and her partner, Roland Webb and her son Dan Edson and her sons Kenneth and his wife Deborah, her son David and his partner, Julie Fitzpatrick; her grandchildren Daniel, Tori, Jeffrey, Sarah, Michael, John and her great-grandchildren Chris and Kaydence Marie; and her extended family Pat and Gary Francis and family; and two special women Bonnie Rocheleau and Janet Babits, and all her friends.
