Babbie, dog lover, fierce backgammon player, proud owner of a competitive forehand, accomplished equestrian, socially sought after for her lively graces, died on Friday May 17, in her home at Casa Dorinda.
Babbie was lovingly raised in Pasadena by her parents
Helen and Guy Witter along with her adored sister, Betty.
Babbie met her first husband, Gerry Gregory, in Honolulu where she served with pride as a W.A.R.D. in 1945. Their three children, Susan Gregory, Anne Knight and Tyler
Gregory were raised in Pasadena.
In 1969 Babbie married Frank Gillett, father of Elizabeth Berry, Priscilla Hoecker and Jane Gillett, joining the two families and cementing the six children's special bond.
She will be remembered with love by her children and grandchildren and for her great sense of humor, competitive nature and love of animals.
The family will hold a private service.
