Babbie Wheat Obituary

Babbie Lenee Wheat, known affectionately to all as Babbie, danced her way into heaven on November 26, 2023, after a spirited tango with an illness that finally met its match in her indomitable spirit. Born on April 13, 1961, in Texarkana, Arkansas, she brought a spark of joy to the world that would shine brightly for 62 years, illuminating the lives of everyone she touched.

Babbie's life was a masterclass in making the most of every moment, a lesson she taught by example from her home in Lakewood, Colorado. She was a woman who turned the volume up on life, whether that meant swinging her hips to her favorite tunes or whipping up a pie that could make a grown man weep with joy. Her love for HGTV was only rivaled by her passion for the dance floor, where she was known to cut a rug with the best of them, and her adoration for Rip from "Yellowstone," whose cowboy antics she could recount with the precision of a showrunner, With her GED in hand, Babbie was a testament to the fact that the best education comes from a life well-lived, a curriculum of kitchen triumphs, and the kind of TV marathons that turn into family lore.

Babbie was the matriarch of a brood that included her children Tonya, Christina, Bobbie, Amber, Adam, Travis, Tamara, and Patrick. Her legacy further blossomed with 16 grandkids and 13 great-grandkids, with one more en route, all of whom inherited her zest for life and her recipe for the perfect pie crust. Babbie was the kind of person who made holidays look like scenes from a feel-good movie, complete with laughter, too many cooks in the kitchen, and photo shoots that would put any Instagram influencer to shame. She lived for those moments when the house was full, the oven was warm, and the memories were just waiting to be captured. Camping with Babbie was an adventure in itself. She was the queen of the campfire, regaling her family with stories that could make the trees lean in closer, all while masterfully roasting marshmallows to a golden-brown perfection. Her siblings Debbie, Donna, Bubba, and Mike can attest to her knack for turning a simple outdoor getaway into an unforgettable expedition.  She's survived by her father Ray, children, grandchildren, siblings and many more family members and friends. Preceded in death by her mother Linda and brother Stanley. 

As we say farewell to Babbie, let's not dwell on the silence of her absence, but rather tune our ears to the echoes of her laughter, the warmth of her kitchen, and the rhythm of her dance. She was a woman who lived as though life was a party thrown in her honor, and we were all invited to dance, to feast, and to love with the same boundless energy she shared with us all. So, here's to Babbie may your pies always be sweet, your dance floor always be full, and your TV queue never run dry. You've left us with more than just memories; you've given us a blueprint for joy. Keep on dancing, Babbie, and know that every time we hear a catchy tune or see a pie cooling on the windowsill, we'll think of you, twirling and smiling, forever our shining star. 


Love Always 
Your whole Family
