Alice Baines Babb

Alice Baines Babb, 79, passed away peacefully on April 17, 2019, at her residence surrounded by family and friends. She was born in Suffolk.

She leaves behind to cherish her memories, Charles Babb, husband of 58 years; three children, Becky Bazinet (Rick), Troy Babb (Tennie), and Todd Babb (Elizabeth); six grandchildren, Trent Byrd, Travis Byrd (Amanda), Billy Babb (Eryn), Hunter Babb, Crystal Stuart and William Giles; four great-grandchildren, Tevin, Zain, Tristan, and Waylon, who will be arriving in August.

Over the years, she worked at Dr. Weinberg’s office, as a nurse’s aide at Autumn Care Nursing Home, a cook and school bus driver at Suffolk Christian School, and a caregiver to many also. Alice is described by her family as a devoted Christian who loved God. She was a loving mother who always gave of her time and heart, also known to many as “Puddin” or “Momma Babb.” She was a member of Liberty Spring Christian Church, with strong ties to Cypress Chapel Christian Church also. A woman so full of energy who believed intensely in the importance of family. A provider for her children in a home that always seemed to hold the aroma of something cooking — all the time. Mom, you have given so much and asked for so little in return. Thank you for always being there for us, for teaching us, listening to us, helping us, forgiving us, and always paving the way for us. We will continue to uphold your legacy — We Love and Miss You.

Family and friends may join the family for a visitation from 7 to 8 p.m. Saturday, April 20, 2019, at Parr Funeral Home & Crematory. A funeral will be held at 2 p.m. Monday, April 22, 2019, at Parr Funeral Home & Crematory with the Rev. Allen Lancaster and Troy Babb officiating. Burial will follow at Liberty Spring Christian Church Cemetery. Condolences may be registered online at www.parrfuneralhome.com.
