A few years later, Babe obtained her Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) and became a school bus driver. Because of her love of children, she later obtained her license to operate a daycare and opened her own in-home daycare. In addition to providing care to the neighborhood children, Babe provided support to people in the community with obtaining benefits and securing money for businesses via writing grants. Babe was also a fantastic cook and baker. She spent many years feeding the neighborhood and found joy in baking cakes for her nephew Clarence “”Horsey” Willoughby.
