Miriam Matson Babbitt was reunited in Heaven with her husband of 46 years, Allen Joel Babbitt, on Dec. 20, 2013, at the age of 90 years. "Mimi" was born in San Antonio, TX, on Sept. 10, 1923.

She was an accomplished pianist, playing in church since a young teen. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and homemaker.

Mimi never met a stranger, whether it was a person or an animal. She was so friendly that within five minutes of your first meeting, she might have learned your entire life history.

Her favorite pastime was to feed her deer. She would often nurse an injured deer back to health. Likewise, she could never walk past a dog without stopping to pet it.

Mimi loved to travel and went all over the world. She especially loved to vacation in Colorado with her family.

Miriam is predeceased by her beloved husband Allen. She is survived by her son, Gerald Allen Babbitt, and wife, Cheryl, of Mountain City; her two grandchildren, whom she loved dearly, Karen Babbitt Brown, and her husband Chris, of San Antonio; and Ryan Allen Babbitt, who is currently relocating to Tokyo, Japan. Other survivors include many dearly loved nieces and nephews, from the Matson and Babbitt families.

Services were held at Har-rell Funeral Home, in Kyle, TX, on Friday, Dec. 27, followed by graveside services at Pipe Creek Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Association.
