Fayetta Charloe Babby
”1946 - 2019”



    Fayetta Charloe Babby

    I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death.
    They continue to participate in every act,
    thought and decision we make.
    Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories.
    We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been
    enriched by having shared their love.

      Fayetta Charloe Babby
      Fayetta Charloe Babby, 73, passed on July 29, 2019. Faye was born on March 27, 1946, at the Claremore Indian Hospital in Claremore, OK to Georgia Ross and Fate Charloe, (both deceased).
      She was an enrolled member of the Seneca Cayuga Tribe. Faye was educated in the Bureau of Indian Affairs, (BIA), school system and graduated from the Chilocco Indian School. After graduating from the University of Oklahoma, (always a Sooner fan), she was responsible for gaining the funding of the Oklahoma Indian Health Clinic.
      Faye was employed by the Department of Education, first as an Education Specialist and then as Executive Officer of Bilingual Education. During that time, she was also on the White House Committee for Bilingual Education for President Carter.
      Following her marriage to Wilson Babby in 1989, she joined the Bureau of Indian Affairs and served as the Regional Education Program Administrator in Sacramento until her retirement in 2006.
      Faye was a very talented person. She loved to sew and was famous for making tribal shirts and skirts and costumes for her grandkids' plays. Flowers were her specialty and she could make orchids grow forever. She also loved to travel, and she and Will went all over the world; from New Zealand to Italy and during the last years, three trips to Cabo San Lucas.
      Faye is survived by her loving husband, Will, and her daughter Shawn. By marriage she is also survived by daughter Kelly and sons Darren, Shannon (Traci), and Terry.
