Velma Bartlett Bloomfield Babcock was the daughter of James and Fannie (Driscoll) Bartlett, and was a 1936 graduate of Janesville High School. Velma married Kenneth Bloomfield on September 28, 1940, and they lived on Cornelia Street in Janesville. On November 25, 1940, Kenneth went to Fort Knox, Kentucky, when the Janesville tank company was federalized. He left for the Philippines in the fall of 1941. He was killed on April 11, 1942, during the Bataan Death March in the Philippines. She later married Charles Elston Babcock on March 14, 1947, in Janesville. He preceded her in death on May 2, 1997. Velma was a bookkeeper at Parker Pen, WP&L, and Sartell Baton Co. She was a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church. She enjoyed participating with the Janesville Swinging Squares, Round Dancing, ceramics, going out to eat, knitting, crocheting, reading, was an accomplished seamstress, and enjoyed spending time with her friends and family. During her retirement years, she spent 10 years living in Hayward in the summer and Tucson, AZ, in the winter. Velma passed away November 15, 2010, at the home of her daughter with her loving family at her side. Her life was one of love, and her care of others will not be forgotten. Survivors include her two daughters; seven grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; five great-great-grandchildren; two sisters-in-law; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; husbands; a grandson, Jason Eckert; son-in-law, Claude Keenlance; and three brothers: Ernie, Floyd, and Leslie Bartlett.
